Be it nepotism or Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Kangana Ranaut has always voiced her opinion about things that she feels are not right. And on her way has made many foes than friends. Her recent comment where she compared Mumbai to PoK did not go down well with many. However, soon after her remark, she was sent a notice by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation about the unauthorised construction at her Mumbai office. And it took a day for the BMC to run bulldozers there. A lot of celebrities criticised Kangana for her PoK comment but spoke in support of her after the BMC’s
Here’s what they said:
Amal Sehrawat: Kangana Ranaut through her speech in- spires many people to be open and transparent in sharing their thoughts. Being right or wrong is subjective, but I admire her for not being a hypocrite. I strongly condemn the way in which steps were taken against her by the BMC. I found it biased, where she was not given a chance to put her side of the story or take any legal action, which is the basic right of every Indian.
Rishina Kandhari: The way Kangana handled the entire ruckus so calmly is commendable, anyone else in her place would’ve broken and shattered, emotionally and mentally. This is pure mental harassment. Yet she came out like a lioness. It’s a show of dirty politics and power. No one else but Kangana has guts
to speak so boldly and bluntly against the so-called ruthless and ethical politicians and Bollywood biggies! More power to her.
Shivani Gosain: It is completely unfair and unjust. Whether it was a legal or illegal construction, according to the SC order they were not supposed to take any step till 30 September because of the current pandemic situation. It’s clearly just frustration and revenge. Not done, not accepted at all.
Vijayendra Kumeria: This is a clear case of vindication, and a poor display of power against Kangana, because of her comment on Mumbai, and the way she has exercised her freedom of speech. It’s not that whatever she says is right, it may or may not be, and we should leave that to our investigative authority and jurisdiction. But the demolition on the same day of her arrival in Mumbai was a clear cut action of proving a point.
Savi Thakur: Shame on Maharashtra government for doing something like this. I don’t know why they took that PoK comment in a bad way, Kangana didn’t insult Shivaji Maharaj. She just gave an example, but you can’t ban someone like this. Also, you have destroyed her office, so the Maharashtra
government has proven itself wrong.
Kettan Singh: Kangana did stand up for the right things but has no control over her words. Raising her voice for justice and slowly slipping into believing in conspiracy theories and justifying them isn’t any better than spreading fake news. What the BMC has done is basically a PR disaster for the Maharashtra Government. Kangana triggered them by using words that were harsh to an extent, not just abusive and they reacted in this way. Comparing Mumbai to PoK is the best thing she can do if she is running an agenda, but it’s more than offensive to me and everyone who was born or has worked in this city.
Urvashi Upadhyay Sharle: It is very shocking and sad, because a house or an office is made with so many difficulties and hard work, and it is demolished by saying it is illegal. It’s like only Kangana’s office is illegal rest everything is legal. In Mumbai there are other illegal buildings too, they didn’t demolish all those buildings. In her absence doing what they did was wrong. Till now everything was ok, why it became illegal, the way it has happened, it seems like revenge.
Pranitaa Pandit: This is unimaginable, absolutely cruel and unfair. Kangana is a self-made woman. It’s her hard- earned money and first-ever production house workplace that she had made with so much love and passion. To do this with someone is just not acceptable. Initially, I was contemplating what Kangana is saying or doing is completely correct or not, there were doubts, but this action by BMC proves her correct.
Rohit Choudhary: Kangana should be careful before saying anything, and even Sanjay Raut should respect women and be careful before saying anything. I support Kangana and what BMC did is wrong and not acceptable. She made her office with lots of love, ambition, dreams and do- ing such a thing proves that you are taking revenge from her. Even Manish Malhotra received a notice from BMC but did BMC rush there. I am against BMC and they should follow all the rules and regulations.
Angad Hasija: Initially a lot of people tried to get publicity with Sushant’s death, and Kangana was also one of them. If she really wanted to, she could have just let it be about Sushant, but she made it about herself. And I did not appreciate that. I also did not appreciate her PoK comment because that’s the city which gives me my bread and butter. But I condemn BMC’s act. It was not required at all, it’s not just unfair, it shows that if you say anything against the government, your mouth will be shut.
