Amidst bitter feud with Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena, actor Kangana Ranaut left Mumbai for Manali on Monday morning saying she was doing so with a “heavy heart” after being “terrorised” with attempts to demolish her office.
“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),” she tweeted as she headed to the airport.
She also declared that she would not renovate the building and instead work from its ruins as “a symbol of a woman’s will that dared to rise in this world”.
“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,” she posted in Hindi, targeting the Sena as well as Congress president Sonia Gandhi.
In her five days in Mumbai, the 33-year-old actor met with Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and also Union Minister Ramdas Athwale to demand action and compensation for the demolition.
The “Queen” actor said the demolition, stopped on the orders of the Bombay High Court, was the Shiv Sena’s way of targeting her.
