Kangana Ranaut’s office gets demolished after social media aftermath
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation claims the building has ‘illegal alterations’
Kangana Ranaut’s office was demolished today by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation without her consent due to it allegedly being an illegal construction.
The actress uploaded a series of messages and videos to Twitter to show fans activity of the demolition accompanied with the hashtag #DeathOfDemocracy.
Many are saying that the actions are a result of Ranaut speaking up against the Mumbai Police and Indian Government, whilst others believe the BMC are simply doing their job.
There is no illegal construction in my house, also government has banned any demolitions in Covid till September 30, Bullywood watch now this is what Fascism looks like #DeathOfDemocracy #KanganaRanaut— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) September 9, 2020
Ranaut shared videos of workmen demolishing parts of her Bandra office and wrote, “There is no illegal construction in my house, also government has banned any demolitions in Covid till September 30, Bullywood watch now this is what Fascism looks like #DeathOfDemocracy #KanganaRanaut”.
On Ranaut’s return to Mumbai, the actress had to be escorted with Y+ security due to numerous threats and security risks. This is the first time a Bollywood star has ever needed this level of security.
Ranaut has claimed that there is no illegal construction on her office, and had implied that the demolition is the result of spite and corruption in response to her views. The actress uploaded a one minute video of herself publicly responding to the demolition where she updates her followers about her situation. She then goes on to reinforce her political views in response to her previous argument with the Shiv Sena leader, Sanjay Raut. The actress got herself in trouble by stating that “Mumbai feels like Pakistan occupied Kashmir” and was heavily criticised by fans for saying so.
