The Bombay High Court, on Friday, passed orders on the petition filed by actress Kangna Ranaut against the demolition at her office in Pali Hills by the civic body of Mumbai in September when she was not in the city.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation or BMC had demolished part of Kangna Ranaut’s bungalow at Mumbai’s Pali Hill on the 9th of September. The actress alleged that the action taken by the civic body against her was a result of her comments and criticism on the Maharashtra government and the ruling Shiv Sena party.
The “same party” is also the ruling party in the BMC, the “Queen” movie actress in her petition, without naming Shiv Sena, which runs the BMC – India’s richest municipal corporation.
The civic body stood firm on the claims that Kangna Ranaut’s office contained illegal construction.
The BMC listed a total of 14 violations at her office which also included a toilet which was built in the space marked for a kitchen and an office was set up in the area which was meant for a toilet.

The court observed that the demolition was happening “when she is out of state, directing her to respond within 24 hours, and not granting her any further time, despite written request”.
Kangna Ranaut has sought a compensation of ₹ 2 crore from the municipal corporation of Mumbai for the “illegal” demolition of part of her office.
