Earlier this month, the unrest in Bollywood reached a whole new level when Kangana Ranaut and the Maharashtra government’s war of words got ugly. Not much later, the civic body went ahead and demolished Kangana’s plush office under the garb of ‘illegal constructions’ just hours before she could reach the city. The demolished office now stands partially in ruins and the actress is fighting a court battle challenging the BMC’s move.
While the Bombay High Court has already slammed the BMC for its hasty decision, Kangana recently asked the court to make Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut a party in a plea filed by her against the demolition. The Bombay HC on Tuesday permitted the actress to add Raut, Shiv Sena’s chief spokesperson, as a party in her plea against the BMC.
Reacting to the same, Raut who had used a slur against the actress on a news channel, passed off the move as laughable. Speaking to a TV channel, the Rajya Sabha MP said, “We respect the law and would fight the court battle. Court cases are not new to me.”
Honourable Justice HC, this brought tears to my eyes, in the lashing rains of Mumbai my house is indeed falling apart, you thought about my broken house with so much compassion and concern means a lot to me,my heart is healed thank you for giving me back all that I had lost 🙏 https://t.co/zB9auZwzjX

While Raut has backed the BMC by saying that illegal constructions must be demolished, he added, “Those who are speaking against Maharashtra are preparing their political platform. But why should Maharashtra be treated as a doormat?” Raut asked without naming anybody.
The hearing of the case is underway. On Thursday, the actress also took to Twitter to quote the HC order which stated. “Can’t Leave The Demolished Property As It Is, You Need Time Here Otherwise You Are Very Fast”; Bombay HC To BMC In Kangana Ranaut’s Case.”
So what do you think about this case? Kangana Ranaut and Shiv Sena fight has been on for a while now and we all are waiting for the outcome of it.
