Talking about the procedure, the actor further explained that if he is the complainant, he doesn't have to go the court. However, the one who has been accused, has to be present for every hearing. Pressing on how he has bear patience all this while and still continues to do so, he highlighted how his case is the 'only case in the history of India', where it the accused who has requested to continue with the trial despite all of it.
