Bollywood Actress Kangana Ranaut, who has been at loggerheads with her colleges in B-town on several issues has faced back-to-back hammer blows with the orders of Courts, which made her move the Supreme Court.

According to the media reports, Kangana Ranaut knocked on the doors of the Supreme Court to seek directives to transfer the cases registered against her to her state Himachal Pradesh from Maharashtra.

In the petition, the actress reportedly said she has a threat from the Shiv Sena leaders to attend the cases in Mumbai and sought the transfer of cases to Himachal Pradesh.

Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli Chandel are facing prosecution in three criminal cases in Mumbai. These cases were registered on the grounds of causing disharmony between Hindus and Muslims by her tweets, making defamatory remarks against veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar and Sedition case filed by casting director Munawar Ali Sayyed.

The actress moved to the Supreme Court after the orders issued by courts in Mumbai and Karnataka shocked her.  A Mumbai metropolitan court issued a bailable warrant against her after she failed to appear before the court for the hearing in the case filed by Akhtar.

On the other hand, the Karnataka High Court refused to issue a stay on proceedings against Kangana Ranaut. The High court adjourned the next hearing to March 18.

It has been widely reported that Judicial Magistrate First Class (JMFC) issued directives to register a First Information Report(FIR) against the actress for reportedly calling protesting farmers 'terrorists'.
