Actress Tanasha ordered to return property to grandmother!

Published

Actress Ruchini Tanasha Hatharasinghe, who was gifted a property in Kollupitiya from her grandmother, was ordered by the Colombo District Court to return the said property back to her grandmother since the actress has failed to show kindness to her and take care of her.

The Colombo District Court issued this order ruling that the grandmother, who handed over the property to her granddaughter while holding the life estate, was treated disgracefully by her granddaughter. The accused actress was ordered to pay a compensation of Rs.5 million and Rs. 30,000 monthly to her grandmother until the property is legally handed over to her.

Colombo District Judge Poornima Paranagamage delivered this order after considering the case filed by the actress’s grandmother Jayanthi Perera (72).

The District Judge has pointed out in her order that the actress was not only rude to the grandmother who gifted the property, but also behaved disrespectfully while testifying in the court.

Issuing the order, the Judge said the complainant has well proved that the accused had treated the grandmother with unkindness and ingratitude, instead of taking care of her with love and kindness.

The grandmother, who lived with her children in the Kollupitiya area of Colombo since 1972, handed over the relevant property to the actress, the eldest grandchild of her family, in 2010, while holding a life estate.

Counsel who appeared for the plaintiff pointed out that following the property transfer, the accused had sent the grandmother out of the house under the excuse of repairing the roof and then had not even bothered to check in on the grandmother.

“I didn’t know that my grandmother was suffering from a heart disease. She should have told me that she is not doing well. If necessary, I can give her money for treatment, I did not see or meet her until this case was filed,” the defendant said while testifying.

Considering these facts, the Judge ordered the property be handed back to the grandmother.

Attorney S.Janagan with Iraj de Silva appeared for the prosecution while Attorney Niranjan de Silva appeared for the defence under the instructions of Attorney Nalin Samarakoon.

Tanasha, who won the second place in Derana Miss Sri Lanka pageant, then participated in the Miss Globe pageant as well.

Constable who slapped Kangana Ranaut, suspended & arrested

Published

The Central Industrial Security Force (CISF) constable who allegedly slapped newly-elected Mandi MP and actor Kangana Ranaut at the Chandigarh airport for “disrespecting farmers” has been arrested, sources said on Friday.

A police case was filed against the accused constable, Kulwinder Kaur, and she was also suspended after she allegedly slapped Ms Ranaut on Thursday. The actor was on the way to board a flight to Delhi when the incident happened.

The paramilitary security personnel said she was triggered by an old statement from Ms Ranaut.

She gave a statement… that farmers are sitting there for ₹ 100. Will she go and sit there? My mother was sitting there and protesting when she gave this statement…,” she said, referring to the farmers’ protest in 2020 against the three farm laws passed by the Centre.

During the height of a nationwide agitation, Ms Ranaut had remarked in a social media post that an elderly woman at a protest site was being paid ₹ 100 to sit there. After facing widespread backlash, the actor deleted the post.

In a video, recorded by onlookers at the airport, the Mandi MP can be seen escorted to the security checkpoint where the incident occurred. However, as she reaches the area, an argument breaks out and she is then escorted away. The video does not capture the alleged slap.

Hours after the incident, the actor took to X and shared a video message about what occurred at the airport.

“The incident happened at the security check-in. The woman guard waited for me to cross. She then came and hit me… started throwing expletives. I asked (her) why she hit me. She said, ‘I support farmers’. I am safe… but my concern is terrorism is rising in Punjab. How do we handle that?” she said in the video.

The actor faced online backlash in February 2021 after she responded to a post by singer Rihanna on the farmers’ protest. “Why aren’t we talking about this?”, the pop icon said while sharing a video of the farmers protesting.

Ms Ranaut hit out at the post by labelling the protestors as “terrorists”. “No one is talking about it because they are not farmers, they are terrorists who are trying to divide India, so that China can take over our vulnerable broken nation and make it a Chinese colony much like the USA… Sit down you fool, we are not selling our nation like you dummies,” she said.

However, she later deleted that post.

The farmers’ protest that began in 2020/21 made headlines in India and across the world. Ms Ranaut made several posts slamming the protests and raising questions over the legitimacy of the agitation, often hitting out at the protesters.

During her campaign, her convoy was blocked by agitators in Chandigarh over her comments.
