Kangana Approaches Bombay HC as BMC Demolish her Mumbai Office

On Wednesday (September 9,2020), BMC (Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation) started demolition of structural violations carried out at actor Kangana Ranaut’s office in suburban’s Bandra’s Pali Hill.

The actress' lawyer filed a plea in court against the demolition and claimed that no work was being carried out on the premises. In his statement, he said "as falsely understood by you, so the notice issued by you as "Stop Work Notice" is absolutely bad-in-law & appears to have been issued only to intimidate her by misusing your dominant position."

Vinayak Vispute, assistant municipal commissioner, BMC, H-West Ward under whose jurisdiction Bandra falls said: “We will carry out the demolition work on Wednesday over the structural violations carried out at Ranaut’s office at Pali Hill. Further action will be taken after the demolition process.”

As per the civic rules, any structure has to be built in line with the plan submitted to the local authorities. Any illegal changes in the plan or alterations in the structure attract legal action.

On Tuesday (September 8, 2020), BMC had issued a notice to Kangana over several structural violations carried out in her office while asking her to respond within 24 hours and take corrective measures, failing which “the illegal portions” would be demolished.

Later, Kangana’s lawyer had written to the BMC authorities asking seven days to respond to the notice, instead of 24 hours. The lawyer had cited that the notice is legally untenable.

Kangana tweeted on Wednesday (September 9, 2020), “As I am all set for a Mumbai darshan on my way to the airport, Maharashtra government and their goons are at my property. They are all set to illegally break it down. Go on! I promised to give blood for Maharashtra’s pride. This is nothing. Take everything, but my spirit will only soar higher.”

Kangana Ranaut has invited the ire of Shiv Sena after she compared Mumbai with 'Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir' and 'Taliban'. She has also been warned by Sena leaders to not return to Mumbai. This comes amid Kangana's continuous criticism of the Maharashtra government and Mumbai Police's investigation in Sushant's death case.

Seeing the demolition, Kangana reacted by saying that the office was like "Ram Mandir" to her calling those demolishing it 'Babur's army'. Several officials barged into her office with heavy equipment and JCB to execute demolition.

She also wrote "This is not just a building but Ram Mandir for me. Today history is repeating itself and Ram Mandir will be shattered into pieces. But do remember Babur, Ram Mandir will be constructed again, Jai Shri Ram, Jai Shri Ram, Jai Shri Ram.”
