As per the report, Kangana and Rangoli have been granted interim protection from arrest till then. A complaint had been raised against Kangana and Rangoli by Munawwar Ali Sayyed. He claimed that the two sisters tried to create communal violence by their tweets on social media.
Following this, the Bandra Metropolitan Court had instructed the Mumbai Police to file an FIR against the two sisters under various sections of IPC including 124A (Sedition). Earlier, they were summoned by the Mumbai Police to appear before them on November 23-24.
Reportedly, they were also summoned prior to this on October 26-27. The sisters had apparently sought time from the court to appear before the police due to their brother's wedding.

Currently, Kangana is in Hyderabad for the shooting of her film Thalaivi. She recently left Himachal Pradesh to resume work on her projects.
