Actor Kangana Ranaut has been keeping Twitter on its toes ever since she personally took over her account on the microblogging website. Now she has reportedly blocked actor Kubbra Sait and jewellery designer Farah Khan Ali after being called out by them for her tweets. On September 3, Ranaut also came under attack for saying that Mumbai feels like “Pakistan occupied Kashmir.”

Ranaut’s handle had alleged that the Commissioner of Mumbai Police “liked” a tweet that was “derogatory” to her and politician Sambit Patra. When the Mumbai Police denied this charge, she responded saying, “You are a big sham in the name of police force, don’t you forget not just me all the people tagged got notifications of @CPMumbaiPolice liking the derogatory tweet, trying to prove victim a criminal seems your old dhandha, don’t you dare to lie @MumbaiPolice, don’t you dare ..”

Ali, who is Hrithik Roshan’s former sister-in-law, called Ranaut out and wrote, “Dear Kangana, you May be a very big star with a huge following but that doesn’t give you the right to talk badly to the @CPMumbaiPolice @MumbaiPolice who are Govt officials of the state of Maharashtra and responsible for the lives of millions of people.”

Ali went on to say in the thread, “Attacking every single person in Bollywood everyday will make you lose your credibility because when you repeat something day in and day out you lose value.

HT reported that soon after, Ranaut blocked her on Twitter – a claim that Ali made with a screenshot saying, “The self proclaimed Queen of Bollywood just blocked me !!! I must have said something to piss her off.”

Sait also shared a screenshot of her being blocked by Ranaut, and wrote, “Aiyo! I was silent all along. Not one tweet to her. We are katti and she didn’t even tell me. Told her it’s not personal bro!”

Replying to Sait’s tweet, Ali wrote, “Yay congratulations. No more venom on your timeline.”

Apart from Sait and Khan, Ranaut has also blocked many other people, including actor Mona Ambegaonkar, VJ Ria D’Souza, entertainment editor Rohit Khilnani, producer Noyon Jyoti Parasara, and political spokesperson Suraj Kumar Bauddh.

Following Ranaut’s repeated remarks about the Mumbai Police, Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut reportedly wrote, “We kindly request her not to come to Mumbai. This is nothing but an insult to Mumbai police. The Home Ministry should take action over it.”

Ranaut, who is currently with her family in Himachal Pradesh, responded to Raut on Twitter saying, “Sanjay Raut Shiv Sena leader has given me an open threat and asked me not to come back to Mumbai, after Aazadi graffitis in Mumbai streets and now open threats, why Mumbai is feeling like Pakistan occupied Kashmir?”

Her comment drew a lot of flak from Bollywood, who came to the defence of Mumbai city and its police.

Actor Richa Chadha tweeted, “Mumbai is truly cosmopolitan in SO many ways….grew up in Delhi and I can’t explain how much safer this city feels as a woman.”

Renuka Shahane, responding to Ranaut’s tweet, asking her to “have some respect for this wonderful city” where her “dream of becoming a Bollywood star has been fulfilled.”

Meanwhile, director Hansal Mehta wrote, “You know what’s special about my city Bombay/Mumbai? You could spew venom on it but it will still welcome you with open arms. Learn magnanimity from this city.” Adding to the discussion, Riteish Deshmukh too tweeted, “मुंबई हिंदुस्तान है।”

Ranaut has responded to the criticism by saying that she will now return to Mumbai on “9th September,” and that kisi ke baap mein himmat hai toh rok le.
