Actor-politician Kangana Ranaut often finds herself in the middle of controversies. The 37-tear-old who recently won the Mandi Lok Sabha contstituency of her homsestate Himachal Pradesh, was attacked by a CISF constable just a day after getting elected. This reminded many people, about the incident when Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) demolished a portion of her Mumbai house.
Kangana recalled the episode during The Himachal Pradesh podcast. Calling the 2020 incident, a "personal attack", she said, "I felt quite violated, it felt like a lot of violence was unleashed on me. A house is an extension of you, but mine was violently broken, it felt like a personal attack at that time. My takeaway from that incident was how many people supported me in Maharashtra, and to what extent India supported me. Everybody knows the Shiv Sena incident, and people have told me I am courageous. There is a certain fan following of that incident."
A certain part of Kangana's property in Bandra, Mumbai, was demolished by the BMC in September 2020, calling it "illegal construction". Many saw it as a targetted action by the authority due to her alleged conflict with Shiv Sena during that time. Kangana got a stay order on the demolition and also demanded Rs 2 crore in damages.
In the aforementione dpodcast, Kangana was further prodded whether the unfortunate incident encouraged her to join politics. In her reply, she said, "Contrary to everyone’s belief, my idea of doing anything new in life never stemmed from any bitterness, negativity drains me."
Just a day after winning the Mandi seat, Kangana was slapped by a CISF constable at the Chandigarh. The lady said her reaction was in retaliation to Kangana's comments during the farmers' protests, and that she does not regret her action. The incident caused a lot of furor in media, with people giving divided reactions.
