Kangana gets legal notice for fake tweet on Bilkis Bano

Actor Kangana Ranaut, who doesn't shy away from voicing her opinion on political matters, is now facing legal proceedings for sharing a fake Twitter post which showed the 'Shaheen Bagh dadi' Bilkis Bano taking part in the farmers' protest. Kangana, while retweeting the post, alleged that Bilkis Bano was available as a hired protester for Rs 100. An advocate from Mohali, Hakam Singh, has sent Kangana a legal notice for her fake tweet, and has seven days to issue an apology, and failure to do so will amount to a defamation suit. "I sent a legal notice for a tweet misidentifying Ms Mohinder Kaur as Bilkis Bano with an insinuation that she(Ms Kaur) was available as a hired protestor for Rs100. The notice gives Ranaut 7 days to issue an apology failing which a defamation case will be pursued," Hakam Singh told ANI.
