My home today, your ego tomorrow: Kangana's message to Uddhav
Actor Kangana Ranaut, who is fighting an intense battle with the Shiv Sena-led Maharashtra government, sent a pointed message to Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray on Wednesday, hours after her Mumbai office was demolished. In a now-viral clip, the 33-year-old star told the Sena boss his pride will be shattered tomorrow, in the same manner as her "home" was demolished today. Here are more details.
Both Thackeray and "movie mafia" were slammed by Kangana
Addressing Thackeray as "tu," Kangana said he teamed up with movie mafia — a term she coined for Bollywood A-listers — to bring down her office. "Uddhav Thackeray, tujhe kya lagta hai? (what do you think?) That you colluded along with the film mafia, demolished my home and took revenge on me?," Kangana said, warning Thackeray that the wheels of time would change soon.
Can understand the pain of Kashmiri Pandits: Kangana
Visibly angry at today's developments, Kangana sardonically thanked Thackeray for hammering her property. Referring to the exodus of Kashmiri Pandits decades ago, she said she now understands what they went through. "I am promising to the entire country that I will not only make a movie on Ayodhya but on Kashmir as well," Kangana said in the over one-minute clip.

Kangana landed at a crowded Mumbai airport earlier today
Kangana landed in Mumbai today, days after Sena's spokesperson Sanjay Raut advised her against visiting the city if she felt "threatened." Flanked by uniformed officials (she was given Y plus category security after threats from Sena), Kangana left the crowded airport around 3 pm. At the airport, hundreds of Shiv Sena workers raised slogans against her, while other fringe outfits vowed to protect her.
Babur's army demolishing temple: Kangana on BMC's action
Before she arrived in the maximum city, Kangana posted pictures of her office, that was being demolished by the officials of Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). In one tweet, she likened BMC officials to Mughal emperor Babur's army, out to raze a Ram Mandir, while in another post she said this behavior reaffirmed her beliefs that Mumbai has turned into Pakistan-occupied Kashmir.
Earlier, Bombay HC imposed a stay on the demolition
As Kangana's "Manikarnika Films Private Limited" hogged limelight, her lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui approached Bombay High Court against the demolition. The court ordered a stay on the process, asking the civic body to file a response to Kangana's petition. Meanwhile, a report in NDTV claimed Kangana was warned about the illegal alterations two years ago. She had gone to the court even then.
Sena is clearly upset with Kangana and her dissenting views
To recall, Sena took umbrage at multiple comments of Kangana where she targeted the Maharashtra government and Mumbai Police over the Sushant Singh Rajput death case. She claimed she was being singled out by the ruling party because of her dissenting opinions. In fact, yesterday, a motion was also moved against the actor in the Maharashtra Assembly Council for her "disparaging" remarks.
