The complaint mentioned: "It is pertinent to note that one sister calls for genocide killings, violence and the other sister not just support her for the same despite nationwide criticism and suspension of her Twitter account but also gives a label of terrorist to a sect..."

The complaint accused the Queen actor and her sister-cum-manager Chandel of "misusing their stardom, fanbase, fame, money, power and influence with an aim and intent to promote hatred, disbalance, fights in the country for their personal benefits and gains".

In a recently shared video on Instagram, Ranaut said if anyone can find a tweet where her sister says anything offensive, "then we both will publicly apologise".

The actor further mentioned, "My sister Rangoli Chandel had specifically mentioned that people who have attacked doctors and police personnel should be shot dead," adding that celebrities like "Farah Ali Khan ji and Reema Kagti ji made a false allegation" that Chandel's comment was community-specific.

Ranaut had also stated in the video message that she and her sister did not believe that every person "attacking doctors and cops" belonged to any particular community.
