The battle between actor Kangana Ranaut and Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray seems far from over as the Mumbai police on Thursday (September 10) filed a complaint against her for using ‘foul language’ against the later.
Ranaut addressed the CM as “tu” (you) while responding to the BMC action on her Mumbai office on Wednesday. “Uddhav Thackeray, tujhe kya lagta hai? (what do you think?) That you colluded along with the film mafia, demolished my home and took revenge on me? My home was demolished today, your arrogance will crumble tomorrow,” Kangana Ranaut had said on Twitter.
“This is the wheel of time, remember, it never stays the same,” warned the 33-year-old actor, hours after Mumbai’s civic body BMC demolished what it called illegal alternations at her office in Pali Hills.
Kangana started the online battle with the Maharashtra CM by criticising the Mumbai police and state government for their “reckless” handling of the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. Kangana’s comment that she didn’t feel safe in Mumbai anymore and that “Mumbai was feeling like PoK” only fueled the fight further.
The Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) started a demolition drive at Kangana’s Pali Hill office on Wednesday, following which the actor’s lawyer moved the High Court and sought immediate stay on the demolition. The HC did stay BMC’s drive and reprimanded it for the hasty action.

The BMC on Tuesday issued the notice to Ranaut citing illegal structural violations under section 354A of the Mumbai Municipal Corporation (MMC) Act, 1888. The BMC had sought a reply to the notice within 24 hours, as per the Act, and warned of action. Ranaut, through her lawyer, sought seven days to reply to the notice. However, the BMC on Wednesday initiated the action saying they were not satisfied with the reply.
Kangana has been provided ‘Y’ security by the Union government after a war of words broke out between Kangana on one hand and Shiv Sena and Maharashtra Congress leaders on the other hand.
