Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut, on Tuesday, September 15, filed a claim of Rs 2 crore against the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). She filed a petition at the Bombay High Court demanding the compensation for the damages caused after the municipality took action taken against her office at Pali Hill in Mumbai. The matter will be heard in the High Court on September 22, 2020.

Reports state that the actress has again challenged the BMC against the loss incurred and has stated that rare items were damaged during the action taken by the officials. The petition states that over 40 per cent of the total property was damaged.

Understanding this, the Bombay High Court has directed the BMC to clarify the same by Thursday, September 17, 2020, and as per records, the hearing will be held next week. It is said that Kangana was issued a notice under Section 354 (A) of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation Act, on September 8, for unauthorized construction at her office in Bandra, and was given 24 hours to reply. However, no reply was received from her, post-which the municipality took action on the morning of September 9.

BMC officials have claimed that there were 12 unauthorized constructions in Kangana's office. Her advocate Adv. Rizwan filed the petition in the High Court through Siddiqui, and the action was later adjourned. Her team has alleged that the BMC took action and demolished the construction after she passed statements against Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut. It is said that the party has misused the power, basis which the compensation should be sought for the loss and damages.

Kangana arrived in Mumbai on September 9, 2020, and returned back to Manali a few days later. After a verbal confrontation with Shiv Sena leaders and members, she sought Y-plus category security from the Centre. Earlier, she took to Twitter to compare Mumbai to PoK and mentioned that she feared the state police. This comment wasn't taken well by the general public and the politicians, who later reverted with their thoughts, leading to a verbal spat on social media.
