Kangana Ranaut’s bungalow demolished in ‘malice’, actor to get damages: Court

Kangana Ranaut speaks her mind on hijab row, quotes Afghanistan to mock

The Bombay High Court said on Friday that the demolition of a part of Bollywood actor Kangana Rananut’s office in a bungalow in Mumbai by the city’s civic body “is nothing but malice in law”.

The court while hearing Kangana’s petition against the demolition cancelled the notice.

The court also said that Kangana will get compensation for the damage caused by the demolition.

On September 9, a part of Ms Ranaut’s office in a bungalow at Mumbai’s Pali Hill was demolished by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which claimed the bungalow contains illegal constructions.

Kangana had alleged that the action was a result of her remarks against the Maharashtra government and the ruling Shiv Sena.

“MCGM (Municipal Corporation of Greater Mumbai) has proceeded on wrongful grounds, against the rights of the citizens. It is nothing but malice in law,” a division bench of Justices SJ Kathawalla and RI Chagla said. 

“The manner in which the action was carried out leaves no doubt that not using S.354 was more sinister and preventing her from taking a recourse,” the High Court said.

However, the court also noted that Kangana should refrain from making opinions on the government.

“The valuer shall by March 2021 pass appropriate orders on compensation,” the court said.

Welcoming the court’s decision, Kangana tweeted, “When individual stands against the government and wins, it’s not the victory of the individual but it’s the victory of the democracy. Thank you everyone who gave me courage and thanks to those who laughed at my broken dreams. It’s only cause you play a villain so I can be a hero.”
