Ms Tandon's column, written as a guest author for The Times of India, dealt primarily with a person's constitutional right to fight back.
Several quarters concluded that Ms Tandon, 41, was writing in favour of Ms Ranaut.
In a series of tweets, Ms Tandon denied that she was playing either judge or jury:

Hrithik Roshan and Kangana Ranaut, former co-stars and alleged exes, have exchanged legal notices and public recriminations. Cyber cops are also investigating whether an imposter emailed Ms Ranaut pretending to be Mr Roshan.
