A defamation case has been filed against the Queen actor for remarks on Rashtriya Lok Samta Party leader Upendra Kushwaha in Gaya Civil Court. Ranaut had retweeted a meme which had a picture of Kushwaha in it. In the meme, Kushwaha was marked as Azad Kashmir while other leaders posing with him in the picture were termed as Khalistanis, Jihadis, Lutyens Liberals etc. The meme was trying to convey the message that every anti-India element was trying to use the issue of Kashmir for their political benefits. Ranaut had retweeted the tweet with laughing emojis.
