Actress Kangana Ranaut, who was bitterly involved with Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena, met Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Sunday evening over comments about the Sushant Singh Rajput case and the demolition of its Mumbai office. Ms. Ranaut’s sister Rangoli was also present.
The meeting comes days after Ms. Ranaut’s Mumbai office took revenge for remarks made by civil authorities for criticizing the state’s handling of the Sushant Rajput case and comparing Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK) Expired.
“I spoke of the unjust treatment done to them. I hope that I will get justice, so that the trust of all citizens, including young girls in the system, is restored. I am fortunate that the governor listened to me like her. Her daughter,” Ms. Ranaut told news agency ANI after the meeting.
A disgruntled Shiv Sena was indecent with senior leader Sanjay Raut after his remarks on 33-year-old Ms. Ranaut and threatened to slap the actor.
The Governor met with the advisor to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Friday, as Ms. Ranaut’s office was being demolished; Mr Koshiyari expressed displeasure over the move by the Mumbai civic body, a source told news agency PTI.
Last week, the Bombay High Court demolished Ms. Ranaut’s office in Mumbai’s posh Pali Hills neighborhood after filing a petition. In what was seen as a major victory for him, the court adjourned the case till 22 September.
Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials began demolishing Ms. Ranaut’s office a day before the High Court order.
The civic body has claimed that the actor has 14 “violations” on the site, including a toilet built in the space marked for the kitchen and an office set up in an area for a toilet. Ms. Ranaut, who is an outspoken supporter of Prime Minister Narendra Modi, said she had the necessary permissions.
The High Court considered that the demolition was taking place when the actor was out of state – in Himachal Pradesh – and was given only 24 hours to respond.
Uddhav Thackeray, who had also been targeted in this case, also faced two police complaints against Ms. Ranaut, who tried to challenge and challenge her characterlessness against the Chief Minister.
In a video released on social media last week, the actor described Mr. Thackeray as “tu“, Saying:” Uddhav Thackeray, What do you feelThe (What do you think?) That you colluded with the film Mafia, demolished my house and avenged me? My house was demolished today, tomorrow your pride will be broken.
This morning Mr. Thackeray said that he is ready to face any storm on his way. “Whatever storm has come in the state, whether natural or political, the government is fighting them,” he said.
