Issuing a warning to the CM of Maharashtra, Kangna could be heard saying, “Aaj mera ghar tuta hai, kal tera ghamand tutega (today my house was demolished, tomorrow your ego will be shattered).”
Kangna went on to compare the demolition of her office, which the BMC officials had razed quoting illegal alteration, with the plight of the Kashmiri Pandits. In the video, Kangna said, “In a way, you have done me a favour. I always knew what Kashmiri Pandits suffered through, but today I felt it firsthand…Uddhav Thackeray, there is a meaning of this torture and terror unleashed on me,”.
