Akhtar had filed the defamation suit against Kangana alleging that her baseless comments against him have caused damage to his hard-earned reputation. He has also accused the actress of unnecessarily dragging his name in Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death case.

In his complaint, Akhtar had mentioned that the actress had falsely accused him of threatening her to keep silent about her alleged relationship with Hrithik Roshan. The lyricist’s complaint even stated that the actress dragged his name unnecessarily while speaking about ‘coterie’ in Bollywood.
