As you play villain, I get to be hero: Kangana on SC verdict

Actor lauds Supreme Court’s scrapping of BMC order to demolish her house; takes veiled dig at detractors

The bailable warrant has been issued against the actor on Monday, after she failed to appear before the Andheri metropolitan court

Soon after the Supreme Court quashed the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s order to demolish a portion of Kangana Ranaut’s bungalow, the actor on Friday (November 27) lauded the decision, calling it a ‘victory of the democracy’.

In a veiled dig at the Shiv Sena-led government and ‘detractors’, she said it was only because of ‘villains’ like her, she gets to become the ‘hero’.

“When individual stands against the government and wins, it’s not the victory of the individual but it’s the victory of the democracy. Thank you everyone who gave me courage and thanks to those who laughed at my broken dreams. Its only cause you play a villain so I can be a HERO,” the actor tweeted.

Earlier in the day, the Supreme Court said the BMC’s order to demolish the actor’s bungalow in September was done with “malafide” intention and disregarded her rights.

A bench of justices SJ Kathawalla and RI Chagla said the action taken by the civic body hardly leaves “any manner of doubt” that it was unauthorised.

Kangana had sought damage worth ₹2 crore from the BMC. The court said it was appointing a valuer who would hear the petition regarding the damages.
