Kangana Ranaut said that as a symbolic gesture she will not have her partially demolished office renovated anytime soon. Her Mumbai office was demolished by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) on Wednesday. In a tweet, she also went on to say that since she was barely working these past few months because of the COVID-19 pandemic, she cannot afford to give her knocked down office a makeover.

The actor tweeted, “I had my office opening on 15th Jan, shortly after corona hit us, like most of us I haven’t worked ever since, don’t have money to renovate it.”

Kangana has also said in her tweet, “I will work from those ruins keep that office ravaged as a symbol of a woman’s will that dared to rise in this world,” adding the hashtag, “Kangana vs Uddhav”.

On September 9, Kangana had targetted Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackrey in a video message, in which she 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.”

Kangana Ranaut reached her Mumbai home on September 9, hours after the BMC carried out the demolition work stating “illegal” construction at her office. The actor had posted several videos capturing the demolition work carried out by BMC at her office. The Bombay High Court later passed a stay order on the demolition work on her office premise.

According to a senior BMC official she is not planning to stay in Mumbai for long. “Since she is staying here for less than a week, she was exempted under the “short-term visitor category,” the officer told PTI about her being given relief from the 14-day home quarantine rule, for those arriving from outside the state. As per BMC officials, Kangana is planning to leave Mumbai on September 14.

I am proud that my daughter has always stood for the truth.”
