The Bombay High Court stayed on the demolition of Kangana Rananut’s Mumbai office after the actor moved court against the action of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday.
Ahead of her arrival in Mumbai from Himachal Pradesh, the BMC carried out demolition for ‘illegal construction’ at Kangana Ranaut’s office. Following this, Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer filed a plea over the matter in the Bombay High Court.
Amid these developments, Kangana Ranaut once again compared Mumbai to PoK as she alleged that the Maharashtra government is targeting her because of her fight with the Shiv Sena. The actor is at the centre of a heated political row with Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena and its coalition partners over her remark comparing Mumbai to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
