Kangana Ranaut has received a rape threat from an Odisha-based lawyer. The actor, who is currently in her hometown Manali, is yet to respond.

The comment came on a Facebook post she had shared on Navratri, wherein she also mentioned another FIR registered against her in Mumbai. She wrote, “Who all are fasting on Navratris? Pictures clicked from today’s celebrations as I am also fasting. Meanwhile, another FIR filed against me…Pappu Sena in Maharashtra seems to be obsessing over me, don’t miss me so much I will be there soon.”

It is in the comments section that the advocate reportedly made the threat.

As per a Times of India report, the lawyer later posted a note claiming that his account had been hacked. “Today my Facebook ID got hacked and some derogatory comments were posted. These are my not views regarding any women or any community. I am also very shocked and apologise for it,” he said. “I request all the people to kindly accept my apology and forgive me if their sentiments got hurt. I am really sorry for it.”

The lawyer subsequently deleted his Facebook account.

Ranaut is busy with her family but for the last couple of months, she has been rather vocal on a number of subjects connected to Sushant Singh Rajput’s case and the Hindi film industry in general. On October 17, on the orders of a local court, the Mumbai police registered an FIR against the Queen star and her sister Rangoli Chandel for allegedly promoting enmity between different communities.

The Bandra Metropolitan Magistrate’s court had ordered the police to investigate a complaint filed by Munawwar Ali Sayyed, a Bollywood casting director and fitness trainer, which referred to the sisters’ tweets and other statements.
