Kangana vs Shiv Sena: Notice on illegal alteration is 2-year-old
Mumbai : Kangana Ranaut was warned about the illegal alterations at her Pali Hill office 2 years back and she had gone to the court that time for relief, a media report claimed on Wednesday.
The BMC moved to demolish the structure today which was later halted by the Bombay High Court after she challenged the notice in the court.
The demolition at Manikarnika Films, the movie production house in west Mumbai's Khar, comes at a time when she is in an intense battle with Shiv Sena, which controls BMC, over her recent opinion on Sushant Singh Rajput's death.
The Sena also controls the BMC and the actor has alleged that the demolition is just vendetta.
Documents from the court of the Additional Sessions Judge, dated October 20, 2018, however, shows that Ms Ranaut had gone to court "asking for an-interim relief" regarding a notice dated 28.3.2018 and order dated 10.09.2018 -- a period when the BJP was in power in the state.
"In fact, earlier also the Deft/MCGM was directed to consider the reply of the plaintiff. However to subserve the interest of the justice and to have a fair opportunity to the plaintiff, it is appropriate to direct the Deft/MCGM to consider the reply of the plaintiff afresh and pass fresh speaking order. The plaintiff is also at liberty to move the proposal for regularisation if necessary and permissible to the Deft/Corporation in respect of the notice structure," the order read.
Kangana Ranaut was on her way back to Mumbai from Himachal Pradesh when demolition work started. She later issued a video warning to CM Uddhav Thackeray, claiming that "wheel of time... never stays the same".
