The High Court has adjourned the matter for further hearing till September 22. The court had stayed the BMC action on Wednesday.

Actor Kangana Ranaut, known to be a supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, has tried to silence her critics, saying she is “obsessed with work and never thought about politics.”

In a couple of tweets posted on Saturday (August 15), Kangana said she was earlier offered election tickets by both the Congress and the BJP, but she chose not to enter politics.

“This is to set the records straight for everyone who thinks I support Modi ji because I want to join politics, my grandfather has been Congress MLA for consecutive 15 years, my family is so popular in politics back home that after Gangster almost every year I got offers from Congress,” she said.

“From Congress, fortunately after Manikarnika, even BJP offered me a ticket, I am obsessed with my work as an artist and never thought about politics so all the trolling that I get for supporting who I want to support as independent thinker need to stop,” she added.

Soon, Kangana will be seen as late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalithaa in the biopic Thalaivi.
