BH CORRESPONDENT, Mumbai: This is not good news for actor Kangana Ranaut. On Saturday, a Mumbai court has ordered an FIR against Kangana for allegedly creating religious disharmony. The Queen actress has been accused of “continuously defaming Bollywood film industry” by a casting director who petitioned the court and said the actor is “creating a communal divide between people of two communities and in the mind of common man” through her tweets, reported NDTV. The complaint also finds the mention of her sister Rangoli Chandel.
“She is well aware that she is a well-known actress and has a big fan base so her tweets will be seen and will reach out to many people,” the petitioner underlined.
“The allegations are based upon the comments made on electronic media – Twitter and interviews – and a thorough investigation by an expert is necessary,” the court said, directing the police station concerned to “initiate necessary action and investigation against the actor and her sister under relevant provisions of Criminal Procedure Code (CrPC).”
Kangana is “creating divisions between Hindu artists and Muslim artists,” the petitioner has alleged, stressing that she “is maliciously bringing religion into almost all her tweets”.
The actress has been slamming Bollywood in a series of tweets. On Friday, she started a trend called #IndiaRejectBollywood. She asked people to reject the derogatory word ‘Bollywood’ and said that it was stolen from Hollywood.
“There are ARTISTS and there are BHANDS there is INDIAN FILM INDUSTRY and there is BOLLYWOOD #IndiaRejectBollywood most ridiculous word BOLLYWOOD itself copied and stolen from HOLLYWOOD. Please reject this derogatory word #IndiaRejectBollywood,” she tweeted.

Kangana also tweeted about the ghastly incident that has shocked the world in Paris when reportedly a teacher was beheaded on the streets of Paris in the name of religion.
A teacher is beheaded for a caricature, we can only imagine what those invaders must have done to our people during invasion, in today’s digital age with education and exposure they act like demons what they must have done to Bharat when they were Nomads? #parisbeheading
