Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut arrived in Mumbai on Wednesday amid current controversy with the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) and a verbal fight with the Maharashtra government. The Fashion actress headed to meet her legal team, post the demolition drive that was carried out by the BMC earlier today at her office. She had earlier tested negative for the novel coronavirus and left for Mumbai from Manali, with Y-plus security.
Kangana approached the Bombay High Court challenging the notice issued by the Mumbai administration for 'illegal construction' at her office and sought a stay on the demolition process. "We filed a petition this morning seeking urgent hearing. We have sought a stay on the demolition process by way of interim relief," Ranaut's advocate Rizwan Siddiqui told PTI.
The Bombay High Court asked to stop the demolition of Kangana’s property by the Mumbai civic body for ‘illegal construction’. The HC asked the BMC to file a reply on the actor’s petition.
The BMC demolition drive has given "unnecessary publicity" to Kangana Ranaut who is engaged in an mounting row with the state government over her "Mumbai feels like PoK" remark, Nationalist Congress Party chief Sharad Pawar, whose party is part of the ruling alliance with the Shiv Sena, said on Wednesday.
"I have objection to media's coverage. Media made these things bigger. We should ignore such things," ANI quoted him as saying.
