Mumbai: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has sought Rs 2 crore from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) over alleged demolition of her office.
She filed a petition in Bombay High Court for illegal demolition of her Pali Hill’s office in Mumbai and demanded compensation from the civic body.
The Maha Vikas Aghadi (MVA) government in Maharashtra has called the petition filed by Kangana as an “immature plea”.
The BMC on September 9, demolished the “40 percent of the bungalow along with the valuable properties such as chandeliers, sofa, rare artworks’’. Kangana’s lawyer Rizwan Siddique on Thursday (last week) informed the High Court that he would amend the 29-page petition which was filed hurriedly on Wednesday against the demolition notice.
She also questioned the detection report of September 5 which claimed by the BMC. In her petition, she also said that her lawyer went to her bungalow to serve H/W ward along with a copy of her petition. She said that the case was scheduled to be heard at 12.30 pm. On that day the BMC official locked the bungalow from inside and continued the demolition.
This incident came after there was a verbal spat between Kangana and Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut was escalated and she compared Mumbai with Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (POK).
The actress and her lawyer also claimed that she was being ‘targetted’ because she spoke against the ‘movie mafia’ in Bollywood.
