New Delhi: Actor Kangana Ranaut returned to Mumbai on Sunday after spending quite some time at her hometown in Manali. Kangana has now started the reconstruction work at Manikarnika Films, her movie production house in Bandra, three months after Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation or BMC destroyed a part of it, calling “illegal structural violations” at the office.
The actress took to Instagram to share that she’s currently “reimagining” her house. She has appointed designer Shabnam Gupta who had shared a beautiful picture of her house entrance painted in blue and white. Kangana had shared the post on her story with the caption, “Reimagining my Mumbai house with this magician.”
Kangana Ranaut had asked for a compensation of Rs 2 crore from BMC for “illegal” destruction of a part of her office in Mumbai. She has also approached the Bombay High Court while the BMC was tearing down the walls at her movie production house in Bandra, after which the court ordered the BMC to stop destroying it.
Later, BMC had filed a testimony in the Bombay High Court opposing Kangana Ranaut’s case challenging the demolition of her office and seeking Rs 2 crores in damages. The BMC, in its affidavit, submitted that Kangana approached the court with “unclean hands” and “suppressed facts and isn’t liable for any relief”.
Kangana had been indulged in a verbal spat with the Uddhav Thackeray led Shiv Sena. Post the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput, Kangana had made some controversial remarks with one of her statements going over-the-top wherein she compared Mumbai to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. In return, Sena leader Sanjay Raut, too, projected some comment towards the actor that are too vile to be mentioned here.
Kangana has also been loggerheads with Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray whom she has sent multiple warnings post the demolition of her house.
Meanwhile, the actress had earlier returned to Mumbai on September 9, days after the demolition of her house, and said that as a symbolic gesture, she will not renovate the portions of her office that were demolished.
On the work front, Kangana recently wrapped up the shooting of her upcoming film Thalaivi which is based on the life of late actress and former CM of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa. She is currently shooting for Tejas and Dhaakad.
