Bombay High Court tells BMC to stop demolition work at Kangana’s bungalow

The move comes after a number of caustic messages are shared between the actor and a few Maharashtra politicians on social media

Mumbai, September 9

The Bombay High Court on Wednesday stayed the demolition process initiated by the BMC for illegal construction at actor Kangana Ranaut's bungalow here and sought to know why did the city civic body enter the property when the owner was not present.

Justice S J Kathawalla was hearing a petition filed by Ranaut challenging the notice issued by the BMC for illegal construction at her bungalow. The petition also sought a stay on the demolition process.
