Reacting to her office being demolished by the Mumbai civic body, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, in a video message to Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackeray, said: "You demolished my home today, tomorrow your arrogance will be demolished."
She has accused the chief minister of being in cahoots with the ‘movie mafia’ and accused him of 'cruelty', in a message, posted on Twitter.
She also compared her own plight to that of the Kashmiri Pandits when they were driven out of their home state and said that she will make a film on Ayodhya and Kashmir.
The actress earlier arrived at her residence in Khar, Mumbai, after she taken out of the Mumbai airport through Gate 8 as as protestors waited outside the airport. Meanwhile, police have also cordoned off her residence and beefed up security at her residence.
She landed in Mumbai from her home state Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday, amid massive protests by Shiv Sena workers at the airport over her remarks on Mumbai and the city’s police.
Earlier, today the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation demolished ‘illegal alterations’ at the Bandra office of Kangana Ranaut just before her arrival in Mumbai.
Following the BMC action, Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer, Rizwan Siddiqui moved the Bombay High Court for a stay on the demolition process. The Bombay High Court after hearing the plea stayed the demolition process of Kangana Rananut’s Mumbai office.
However, by then portions of the office had already been demolished by the BMC.
Kangana, who flew from Chandigarh by a scheduled commercial flight, landed at Mumbai around 2.30 pm.
Sena workers with black flags were seen outside the airport, shouting slogans against her.
Meanwhile, workers of the Republic Party of India (A) and the Karni Sena also gathered at the airport in support of the actor.
Union minister and RPI (A) leader Ramdas Athawale had said his party will protect Kangana while she is in Mumbai.
The actor had landed herself in a controversy when she made comments about the Mumbai Police and the city itself.
In response to a remark by Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut where he asked her not to come back to the city after she claimed she felt unsafe in the city, Kangana had compared Mumbai with PoK. The state Home Minister Anil Deskhmukh too said anyone who makes derogatory remarks against Maharashtra should not be allowed into the state.
The Bombay High Court also sought to know why did the city civic body enter the property when the owner was not present.
Justice S J Kathawalla was hearing a petition filed by Ranaut challenging the notice issued by the BMC for illegal construction at her bungalow. The petition also sought a stay on the demolition process.
The court sought to know from BMC how it entered the premises and directed it to file an affidavit in response to the plea.
The court has posted the matter for hearing on Thursday.

Amid these developments, Kangana Ranaut once again compared Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir as she alleged that the Maharashtra government is targeting her because of her fight with the Shiv Sena.
The actor is at the centre of a heated political row with Maharashtra’s ruling Shiv Sena and its coalition partners over her remark comparing Mumbai to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir.
