New Delhi: Actor Kangana Ranaut repeated "my Mumbai is PoK now" and posted photos of civic officials at her office as she headed to the city today in the middle of her massive row with Maharashtra's ruling Shiv Sena. A civic team had served her notice over illegal structures at her office as well as home.
The 33-year-old actor alleges that the Maharashtra government is targeting her because of her fight with the Shiv Sena, which also controls the BMC or Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation.
"I am never wrong and my enemies prove again and again this is why my Mumbai is POK now #deathofdemocracy," Kangana Ranaut wrote in a series of tweets.
The BMC notices had listed 14 violations at her office in Mumbai's Pali Hills. A civic official was quoted by Press Trust of India as saying "illegal alterations" at the Bandra bungalow of the Bollywood star would be demolished and a notice has been put up at the address.
"As I am all set for Mumbai Darshan on my way to the airport, Maharashtra 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," she tweeted this morning.
Last night, she posted pictures of a BMC warning to preempt any court move by her and said the agency was desperate to break "her house".
"Now @mybmc has filed a caveat against me, really desperate to break my house, I deeply love what I built with so much passion over so many years but know that even if you break it my spirit will only get stronger.... GO ON," she tweeted.
The actor, given Y-Plus security by the central government, was escorted by cops as she offered prayers at a temple in Kothi, Himachal Pradesh, on her way to Chandigarh for her flight to Mumbai.
Her arrival in Mumbai has been preceded by many protests and a dramatic dust-up with Maharashtra's ruling coalition over her criticism of the Mumbai police and administration's handling of the Sushant Singh Rajput case.
As she commented that she feared living in Mumbai, Sena leaders suggested the actor should stay out of the city.
The row escalated when she retorted that "Mumbai feels like PoK". A Shiv Sena MLA threatened that she would be slapped at the Mumbai airport, women protesters hit her posters with slippers and a top Sena leader, Sanjay Raut, was on camera using a slur against her.
Even Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray took a dig at Kangana Ranaut, saying that people who earned their livelihood in the city were ungrateful.
On Tuesday, Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh ordered an investigation into the allegations of an actor, Adhyayan Suman, that she "took drugs".
