Kangana Ranaut flies back to Manali, says leaving Mumbai with ‘heavy heart’, after being ‘terrorised’

Published

on

Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut who was at the loggerheads with the ruling Shiv Sena in Maharashtra left the state on Monday and said she was doing so with a “heavy heart”.

She further said she was doing so after being “terrorised” with attempts to demolish her office. “Must say my analogy about PoK was bang on,” she said.

“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 workplace, alert security with lethal weapons around me, must say my analogy about POK was bang on,” she tweeted as she headed to the airport.

After landing in Chandigarh, she tweeted that her security had reduced and people were greeting her with joy.

“It seems this time I was saved. There was a time when I felt a mother’s touch in Mumbai, but today the situation is such that I am lucky to be alive. The moment Shiv Sena became Sonia Sena, the Mumbai administration became a terror,” she posted in Hindi.

The Brihan Mumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had last week demolished the Bandra office of the actress for alleged unauthorised modifications/extensions.

A team of the BMC H-West Ward officers accompanied by a police posse had reached the office with bulldozers, JCBs and other heavy equipment and took up the demolition work from the outside.

The development came barely hours after the BMC pasted a notice outside the office rejecting a reply filed by Kangana’s lawyer, Rizwan Siddique, to September 8 notice in which the civic body had listed a series of violations in the ongoing works in her office.

Kangana Ranaut was locked in verbal feud with Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut for her comments over the Sushant Singh Rajput suicide case and was given a Y-plus security by the centre.

The verbal duel started after Kangana’s “Mumbai feeling like Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir” comment last Thursday.

She had also said that she feared Mumbai Police more than what she has dubbed as ‘movie mafia’.

Sanjay Raut reacted through an editorial in Shiv Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna by saying, “This issue concerns the pride of Maharashtra and there will be no compromise on this front. Ranaut needs to apologise for her PoK remarks or she will face the music from our women’s wing.”

Ayushmann Khurrana: What worked for me is I decided to swim against the tide

Ayushmann says he is fortunate that people have loved his brand of cinema, which has hugely contributed to his equity.

“I believed that India wanted to bring out and talk about societal issues openly. I’m fortunate that the audience loved my brand of cinema, engaged and participated with my beliefs. What people perceive my equity to be today, comes from me being unafraid about my choices as a human being. If I wasn’t the man who believed in the things that I have raised my voice for, people would have sensed a disconnect,” he said.

The National Award-winning actor says his brand of cinema is a mirror image of his personality in real life.

“My films are an extension of my personality, my beliefs, my vision for my country. I think people understand that I want to do my best for society, for my fellow citizens and I don’t want to fail them ever.” he mentioned.

Ayushamann says he is going through the best time in his life.

“I definitely think that I’m going through the best phase of my career and I want this phase to continue for a long time,” admitted the actor.

He is rightfully enjoying his bonafide star status today. “It feels great because I know how much hard work I had to put in to be where I’m today. It is hugely humbling to see people believe in me and have faith in the kind of content that I stand for. It’s gratifying to see people relate to my journey because most of India go through the same drill while aspiring to find success,” he said.

“I’m one of them, I will always be one of them and bring out their stories and lives in the form of cinema because I’m deeply inspired by the heroism of the self-made, idealistic, inclusive people of India,” Ayushmann summed up.

Now, I have multiple casting directors reaching out to me with stronger and varied roles after having seen the intense performance for Jyoti’s character in ‘Scam 1992’. So, all in all it has been a big blessing,” added the actress, who was seen as seen as Jyoti Mehta, wife of stockbroker Harshad Mehta.

Asked what’s next for her, Anjali said: “I keep asking that question to myself all the time! I am as curious to know what my journey has to offer next. While I’m currently in talks for a couple of projects, I’m equally thrilled to see it materialising.”

“I want to keep doing a lot of quality and experimental work. This could be for any medium but just has to be extremely challenging and different from my previous roles. This is something that truly excites me and drives me as an actor,” she added.
