    Hurt and angered by the partial demolition of her Mumbai office on Wednesday, which was ordered despite her lawyer filing a legal notice for authorities to desist, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut hit back at Maharashtra State chief Udhhav Thackeray.

    Heavily guarded by the Y-Plus security provided by the central government due to a threat to her life following her alleged anti-Mumbai remarks, Kangana, after arriving in Mumbai, headed straightaway to her home and posted a video in Hindi while reacting to the partial demolition of her office.

    ​“I now understand how Kashmiri Pandits felt after their property was vandalised (during the exodus of Kashmiri Hindus in the late 80s and early 90s from the valley),” said the actress, who has made headlines for issuing several allegations after actor Sushant Singh Rajput was reportedly found hanging by a ceiling fan at his Mumbai flat.

    ​Kangana had earlier tweeted she has all the legal papers and there is nothing illegal in the constructed portions of her Mumbai office.

    ​Hitting out at Udhhav Thackeray, the chief of Maharashtra State and ruling Shiv Sena party, Kangana said, “Do you think that you along with the film mafia broke my house and took big revenge? Today my home is broken, tomorrow your ego will be broken. This is the wheel of time. Remember this.”

    ​Meanwhile, thousands of people were waiting for Kangana to land at the Mumbai airport earlier on Wednesday.

    ​While many people gathered to support her in her fight against Maharashtra State’s ruling political party Shiv Sena and Bollywood’s drug cartel, some were there to protest against her with black flags for comparing Mumbai to “Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir” (a reference to the Pakistani side of Kashmir).

    ​The actress claimed on Wednesday that the demolition was carried out even though the Bombay High Court had stayed all demolitions until 30 September.

    ​Her attorney, Rizwan Siddiqui, revealed the Mumbai’s civic authority Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) led by ruling Shiv Sena, which carried out the demolition, didn’t stop despite him informing the officials that the move violated regulations.

    ​He had filed a plea in the High Court earlier in the day and sought interim relief from the demolition process.

    The BMC had listed 14 "violations" at her office in Mumbai's Pali Hills, which included a toilet apparently built in space marked for a kitchen and an office set up in an area meant for a toilet.

    ​Many celebrities lashed out at BMC over the timing of its action; this happened when she was on her way to Mumbai.

    ​Kangana comparing Mumbai to POK is not acceptable. But there is absolutely no doubt that @mybmc moving to suddenly conduct a demolition of areas of her office space is totally questionable. Why now? Why like this? What were you doing all this while if there were irregularities?

    Making a vow, Kangana said she “will make a movie not only on Ayodhya but also on Kashmir and awaken our countrymen. Uddhav Thackeray, this cruelty and terror… it is good it happened to me. Because this has significance”.

    Ever since Kangana exposed the underbelly of Bollywood in connection with its drug cartel and late actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s case, she has been getting a lot of support as well as trolls for her revelations. The popular Bollywood actress also got into a war of words with Shiv Sena politician Sanjay Raut after which she started getting many death threats.
