Complaint Filed Against Kangana Ranaut For Defaming Post On Uddhav Thackeray
Kangana Ranaut took to social media and raised brows with her tweet against Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray. Now, a complaint has been registered against the actress in Vikhroli police station, Mumbai stating that she defamed CM Thackeray and used obscene language. It also claims that the actress alleged the CM has a connection with “Bollywood Mafia”.
Bombay High Court lawyer Nitin Mane has filed a police complaint referring to a Twitter post shared by Ranaut on Wednesday, CNN reported. In a video capturing the demolition work carried out by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) at her office in Mumbai, Kangana also targeted the chief minister and sent out a message to him saying “his ego will also be destroyed, just as he broke her house.”
The complaint is filed under section 499 (criminal defamation) of the Indian Penal Court (IPC). Read all about BMC’s demolition drive here.
On Wednesday, BMC knocked down parts of her Pali Hill office, citing “illegal modifications”, the Bollywood actress tweeted photographs and videos tagging them as #DeathOfDemocracy. In one particular video, Kangana lashed out at Thackeray and said, “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? My home was demolished today, your arrogance will crumble tomorrow.”

“This is the wheel of time. Remember, time does not remain the same for everyone,” Kangana said in Hindi, in the video.
Kangana alleged that her office was partially demolished because she is speaking up against the Maharashtra government. The High Court later passed a stay order on the demolition work on her office premise.
Meanwhile, jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali criticised Kangana for disrespecting the chief minister and said that she “did not have the decency” to address him respectfully.
