Bollywood actor Manoj Bajpayee on Tuesday filed a criminal defamation complaint against actor Kamaal Rashid Khan AKA KRK in the court of judicial magistrate first class for posting an alleged derogatory tweet against him, his lawyer said.
Manoj Bajpayee's lawyer Paresh S Joshi said the actor personally appeared before the court to record his statement. Manoj Bajpayee filed the criminal complaint in the court of judicial magistrate first class (JMFC) against KRK (46) under IPC section 500 (punishment for defamation). He urged the court to register a criminal defamation case in the matter.
The tweet in question was posted by KRK on July 26, and it defamed the 52-year-old The Family Man actor and tarnished his image among his fans, said his lawyer. Reportedly, KRK had spoken about Manoj Bajpayee's latest release, The Family Man Season 2.
Few months ago, Bollywood actor Salman Khan filed a defamation complaint against KRK after the premiere of his latest film Radhe. On social media, KRK has been vocal about his thoughts on the court battle.
