Kangana Ranaut has been on a non-stop tweeting spree since she came back to the city. On Thursday, she lashed out at ‘mafia bimbos’, a sobriquet she appears to have bestowed upon Sonam Kapoor and lashed out at her for comparing her ‘house tragedy’ with that of a ‘small-time druggie’ who was living off a ‘vulnerable and broken self-made superstar’.
She wrote: “All of the sudden mafia bimbos have started to seek justice for Rhea Ji through my house tragedy, my fight is for people don’t compare my struggles to a small-time druggie who was living off a vulnerable and broken, self-made superstar, stop this right away.”

A day after Mumbai’s civic authorities demolished portions of her office, actor Kangana Ranaut on Thursday again took on the Maharashtra government by castigating Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray for “misusing power” and declaring that her voice won’t be suppressed.
Ranaut, who found support from a section of the film fraternity and also some opprobrium, posted a series of tweets comparing the Shiv Sena-led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to goons, terming the state government a “milavat sarkar” and recalling Marathi culture and pride.
On Wednesday, the day the actor returned to Mumbai from her home state Himachal Pradesh, the BMC demolished illegal alterations of her bungalow. The Bombay High Court stayed the demolition process and sought to know why the BMC entered the property when the owner was not present.
The “Queen” star, whose comment likening Mumbai to Pakistan occupied Kashmir triggered a spat with the Shiv Sena, took a jibe at the NCP-Shiv Sena-Congress state government and said the ideology of the Shiv Sena had been compromised.
“The ideology on which Shri Bala Saheb Thackeray built Shiv Sena, today they have sold the ideology for power, becoming Sonia Sena from Shiv Sena. The goons who broke my house behind my back, do not call them a civic body. Don’t insult the constitution.” Ranaut described Thackeray as a prime example of nepotism who is misusing power to suppress her voice.
“Your father’s good deeds can give you wealth, but you have to earn respect, you will shut my mouth, but my voice will echo in a hundred millions after me, how many mouths will you shut? How many voices will you suppress? Till when you will run away from the truth, you are nothing but an example of the dynasty,” the 33-year-old actor wrote on Twitter.
The actor said the Shiv Sena made a “milavat sarkar” (mixed government) after the election and turned it into a “Sonia Sena”, alluding to the party’s alliance with the Congress. Ranaut said she was touched to receive overwhelming support from her well-wishers from Maharashtra, who “condemned the hooliganism done by the government”.
The actor said her fans across the world, including her home state Himachal Pradesh, were pained by the incident. She added that she also wants to assure them that she gets “love and respect” in the state.
“Many of my Marathi friends cried on the phone yesterday, some gave me many contacts for help, some were sending food to the house which I could not accept due to security protocols. Marathi culture and pride should not be hurt by the Maharashtra government’s shameful act,” she added.
A complaint has been filed against the actor – who had also posted a video against Thackeray on Wednesday – for allegedly using foul language against the chief minister, an official said on Thursday.
