Mumbai/Shimla, Sept 14
Actor Kangana Ranaut on Monday left Mumbai for her home state Himachal Pradesh, saying she had been terrorised with “constant attacks and abuses”, declaring that her analogy comparing the city with PoK was “bang on”.
Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur accused the Shiv Sena-Congress government of harassing her. The actor took a flight to Chandigarh and then travelled by road to reach Manali.
Kangana, whose comments triggered a spat with Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena, had come to Mumbai from Manali last week.
The same day, “illegal” alterations at her office were razed by the Shiv Sena-led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), following which she moved the Bombay High Court, which stayed the demolition.
“With a heavy heart leaving Mumbai, the way I was terrorised all these days constant attacks and abuses hurled at me attempts to break my house after my work place, alert security with lethal weapons around me, must say my analogy about PoK was bang on (sic),” Ranaut wrote on Twitter.
Targeting the ruling party, the 33-year-old actor said the protectors had declared themselves as “destroyers” and were working towards dismantling the democracy. “But they are wrong to think I’m weak. By threatening and abusing a woman, they are ruining their own image,” she added.
Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said the actor would continue to get the security provided by the state government. — PTI
