Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut who landed in Mumbai amid protests from the Shiv Sena workers has hit out at Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. The actress slammed the CM over the demolition of her office in Mumbai’s Khar.
In a video posted on Twitter, the actress addresses him as “tu” while also delivering a warning. “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 said.
“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.
Meanwhile, the Bombay High Court ordered a halt to the demolition and served notice to the BMC. TV visuals earlier showed a bulldozer at the actress’s office as she returned from her hometown Manali amid Y-security by the central government.
In her video, she pledged to make a film on Kashmiri Pandits, saying she finally understood what they must have suffered. “You have done me a favor. I knew what Kashmiri Pandits had gone through but I felt it too today. I vow to this country that I will make a film not only on Ayodhya but also on Kashmir,” she said.

Kangana Ranaut ended with this parting shot: “I knew this would happen to me. This has some meaning. Uddhav Thackeray, this cruelty, this terror, good that this happened to me. Because it means something. Jai hind, Jai Maharashtra.”
The actress has been brazen in her criticism of the Maharashtra and Mumbai Police’s handling of the Sushant Singh Rajput case. The fight between Kangana and the ruling Shiv Sena escalated after the former commented that she didn’t feel safe in the city anymore while also comparing Mumbai to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). Her remarks did not go down well with Sena leaders who asked her to not return to Mumbai.
Amid all this controversy BMC issued notices on her office and home warning of actions against “illegal alterations”. However, the outspoken actress in turn accused the Shiv Sena of vendetta. The BMC in a statement maintained that Kangana Ranaut had been served notice on the “illegal structures” in 2018. They further said that the actress had gone to court at the time asking for relief, way before her war of words with Shiv Sena.
