The actress drew the ire of the Shiv Sena government after she compared Mumbai with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir in her tweets.
She received strong-worded reactions from Sena leaders, following which she was given Y-plus security.
On September 9, she arrived in Mumbai amid tight security. On the same day, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation had conducted a demolition drive at her Mumbai office, razing portions that they claimed were illegally built.
