Kangana versus BMC: Bollywood celebrities react

Mumbai,  Bollywood personalities including Prasoon Joshi, Renuka Shahane, Dia Mirza and Ankita Lokhande have reacted to the BMC demolition drive on the office of Kangana Ranaut on Wednesday.

On Wednesday, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation started demolishing the actress’ Bandra property for alleged unauthorised modifications and extensions. The actress had tweeted photographs of the BMC demolishing, and had also reacted to it. The Bombay High Court later passed a stay order on the demolition.

Here’s what the celebrities have to say:

Prasoon Joshi: Stay strong @KanganaTeam you have the inner strength to see you through the toughest of times #KanganaRanaut.

Renuka Shahane: Though I did not like @KanganaTeam ‘s comment comparing Mumbai to POK I am appalled by the revenge demolition carried out by @mybmc You do not have to stoop so low. @CMOMaharashtra please intervene. There is a pandemic we are dealing with. Do we need this unnecessary drama?

Dia Mirza: I don’t agree with many of the things Kangana has said in the last few months. The name calling, the vicious personal attacks on individuals, the vilification of people. At the same time i am not okay with her being subjected to personal attacks.

Ankita Lokhande: BRAVEHEART Exorbitant love & More Power to you @KanganaTeam

Sonal Chauhan: Breaking somebody’s dream, is NOT what I will ever support. I do not support @KanganaTeam ‘s office being demolished. What’s wrong is wrong!!!

Vivek Agnihotri: This is the NAUGHTIEST Govt in the history of Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s, Babasheb Ambedkar and Balasaheb’s great Maharashtra.

Rahul Dholakia: It’s principally wrong and against Democracy to use power of a public office to get back at a person just because you dont like what they say or do- How is this any different than the tactics used by a Govt of unleashing CBI, ED, Police or even mob lynchers to silence dissent ?

Rashami Desai: From Power to politics to drugs. The fight for Justice surely has turned too ugly to witness. Well! This “drama” is next level, totally lacking discipline and rules. And there is more to come. #shame #DeathOfDemocracy.

Himanshi Khurana: What’s going on in Mumbai.. #BMC should wait atleast…. where’s the democracy.. this is wrong… to demolish anyone’s dream house/office #DeathOfDemocracy.
