Bollywood biggies including Shah Rukh Khan, Ajay Devgn, Salman Khan, Aamir Khan, Farhan Akhtar, Karan Johar have filed a suit against two news channels in the Delhi High Court through their production houses to refrain them from making derogatory and defamatory remarks against Bollywood.

Times Now’s Navika Kumar reacted to the news and tweeted, “If fighting for justice invites court cases, bring it on. All the a-listers can come together but India will continue to fight for the truth. You can’t intimidate us @TimesNow & can’t take away the viewers who believe in us. Let Truth prevail. @aamir_khan @iamsrk @karanjohar

Times Now’s Editor-in-Chief Rahul Shivshankar also took to Twitter and reacted to the incident saying, “The Left has been trying to throttle @TIMESNOW for a while. This is latest attempt by proxy. By selectively commenting about ‘toxic’ news certain journos are betraying real motive behind the move. It could be you tomorrow. | @aamir_khan @iamsrk @PMOIndia”
