Bajpayee filed the criminal complaint in the court of judicial magistrate first class (JMFC) against KRK (46) under Indian Penal Code section 500 (punishment for defamation).

His lawyer Paresh S Joshi said KRK tarnished that actor’s image in a tweet posted on July 26 in connection with his new web series ‘The Family Man Season 2’.
