Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), the governing civic body of Mumbai came in full action on Wednesday Morning as they started demolition of actor Kangana Ranaut’s film office in Bandra claiming that many alterations were carried out on the premises without due permission. Kangana Ranaut slammed BMC by calling them as Babur’s (Mughal Emperor) army and she termed the incident as ‘death of democracy’ in the country.
In a series of tweets, Kangana shared pictures of her office on her twitter handle. In the pictures, it can be seen that large number of police force has been deployed outside Kangana’s office and BMC workers are demolishing the office using JCB machine and heavy equipments.
In her first tweet, Kangana wrote, “As I am all set for Mumbai Darshan on my way to the airport, Maha government and their goons are at my property all set to illegally break it down, go on! I promised to give blood for Maharashtra pride this is nothing take everything but my spirit will only rise higher and higher.”
“Manikarnika Films announced its first film ‘Ayodhya’ in this office. This is not just a building but Ram Mandir for me. Today history is repeating itself and Ram Mandir will be shattered into pieces. But do remember Babur, Ram Mandir will be constructed again, Jai Shri Ram, Jai Shri Ram, Jai Shri Ram,” she wrote in her second tweet sharing office inauguration pictures on her Twitter account.
In her third tweet, sharing the pictures of Mumbai Police and BMC workers, Kangana captioned it as “Babur and his army 🙂#deathofdemocracy”.
In her fourth and fifth tweet, Kangana shared pictures of BMC workers who are demolishing her office from inside and termed Mumbai as ‘Pakistan’. Kangana captioned the pictures as “Pakistan…. #deathofdemocracy” and “I am never wrong and my enemies prove again and again this is why my Mumbai is POK now #deathofdemocracy”.
On Monday, the BMC had carried out an inspection at her bungalow in Pali Hill in suburban Bandra. A BMC team visited the bungalow on Tuesday morning around 10 and pasted the notice as nobody there was ready to receive it. The notice, issued under the Mumbai Municipal Corporation Act, highlighted that the ongoing renovation and finishing work was “beyond approved plan”.
Kangana is returning to Mumbai on Wednesday, fulfilling her challenge to Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut. Kangana and Sanjay have been engaged in a war of words since last week, after Sanjay took offence to her criticism of the city and Mumbai Police. ‘Panga’ actress took panga (engaged in brawl) with Maharashtra state government as she was disappointed with Mumbai Police’s handling of Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case.
Kangana had compared Mumbai to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. Enraged at her comments, Sanjay asked Kangana not to return to Maharashtra. Kangana had been living in Manali with her family ever since before the coronavirus lockdown was announced.
After hearing Raut’s comments against herself, Kangana shared a video on Sunday, declaring that she will be coming back to Mumbai on September 9, and challenged him to try and stop her.
Central government entered in the controversy when home ministry granted Y-plus security to Kangana on the basis of possible ‘threat’ after she spoke about drug use among a section in the film industry following the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput and after Kangana planned her Mumbai visit on September 9.
Baffled by Central government’s decision, Maharashtra state government is leaving no stone unturned to tighten their grip on Kangana’s obnoxious behavior. Yesterday, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said that Mumbai police will probe allegations by Adhyayan Suman that actor Kangana Ranaut took drugs.
Shiv Sena’s Sunil Prabhu and Pratap Sarnaik had earlier already submitted copies of Suman’s interview to the government and demanded an inquiry. Maharashtra Congress spokesperson Sachin Sawant had also asked the NCB to probe Ranaut’s alleged drug links.
