Mumbai: A Mumbai court today granted a last chance to actor Kangana Ranaut from not appearing in front of the court. Kanagana filed an exemption application stating that she is out of country for a shooting and cannot appear in front of the court. Javed Akhtar's legal team opposed this plea and sought a warrant against her.

The court rejected Akhtar's request but also warned Kangana.

The court today told the lawyer of Kangana that today was the last exemption granted to her. If she will not appear in front of the court on the next hearing, the complainant side (Javed Akhtar) will have the right to move a warrant application against her.

Javed Akhar had filed a defamation suit against Kangana Ranaut. He in his suit cited the interviews given by Ranaut to a TV channel and various statements made by her post the death of another Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput.

The matter is now adjourned till 1st September. If the actor fails to appear in front of the Mumbai court on 1st September also, as per court directions, Javed Akhtar will be free to move an application seeking a warrant against her.

Kangana Ranaut had given various interviews and given various statements post the death of Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. She made various allegations against various Bollywood celebrities. She also claimed to know the truth about Sushant's death.

CBI is investigating Sushant Singh Rajput's murder since last August. Despite all the claims made by Kangana that she knows the truth about Sushant's death, CBI hasn't considered her as a witness in the case so far.
