Kangana had moved the High Court seeking directions to authorities to renew her passport so she can leave the country for a film’s shoot. Her plea stated that the passport authority objected to the renewal citing an FIR registered against her by the Bandra police. In an earlier hearing, the Bombay High Court had called Kangana’s application ‘vague’.
The FIR, in question, was registered by the Bandra police against Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel for hateful tweets and sedition.
Giving an instance of the “factual inconsistencies” in Kangana’s application, Additional Solicitor General (ASG) Anil Singh, who appeared for the Regional Passport Office (RPO), told the bench that her application said that she had criminal cases pending against her.
PTI reported that Singh also said that only an FIR has been filed against her and criminal proceedings haven’t begun.
Singh told the HC that once Kangana’s counsel, advocate Rizwan Siddiquee, clarified the statement and further, the actor made the necessary chances, the passport office would “expeditiously” take a decision.
