Days after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) demolished actor Kangana Ranaut’s Mumbai office, the actress on Monday said that “if they [Maharashtra government] stop being obsessed with me, they will know how the entire state is collapsing”.

A Twitter user shared an article reporting the collapse of a three-storey building in Bhiwandi, while also tagging Ranaut’s team, and said: “Painful scenes! Happens when Maharashtra govt has only the time to dismantle @KanganaTeam’s office! #Maharashtra #Bhiwandi.”

To which, the ‘Queen’ actress responded: “Meanwhile Maharashtra government k-k-k-k-kNgnaa ..... if they stop being obsessed with me they will know how the entire state is collapsing.”

On Monday morning, at least 10 people were killed after a three-storey building collapsed in Patel Compound in Bhiwandi, Thane. The incident happened at around 3.40am. Five people were also injured.

On September 10, Ranaut’s office in Pali Hill, Bandra was partially demolished by the BMC. The ‘Tanu Weds Manu’ star, through her lawyer Rizwan Siddiqui, moved the High Court against the demolition of what the BMC termed as “illegal alterations” at her office.

The corporation had earlier filed an affidavit in the High Court stating that Ranaut has unlawfully made substantial alterations and additions to the property, contrary to the sanctioned building plan, and termed her allegations against it as “baseless”.
