KanganaRanaut filed a replication before the Bombay High Court stating that the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai is trying to cover up their illegal acts by calling her bias.
She, in the replication, stated that there was a clear bias against her as she was not given a reasonable opportunity to respond to the allegations made against her whereas a 7-day notice was given to designer Manish Malhotra who lives in an adjacent bungalow. Further the respondent is trying to justify its illegal acts as no proper information about the workmen and the materials used in the demolition are being provided by them. To the reply of the affidavit filed on September 10, 2020, the corporation tried to cover up their statement and stated that 6 workmen were present, plywood was used and the renovations are going on. This clearly implies that they do not have an appropriate explanation and the act was mala fide.
Thus, she denies all the allegations made against her by the Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai and demands compensation of Rs 2 crore for the damage done to her property. The Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai replied that the actor shamelessly blamed the corporation instead of agreeing to the fact that she illegally made alterations to her property. A division bench of Justice SJ Kathawala and Justice RI Chagla heard the matter on September 22 at 3 pm.
