I am reaching Mumbai on 9th September, will see who has the guts to stop me tweet’s Kangana

The tug of war between Bollywood’s controvertial and vociferous actress Kangana Ranaut and Shiv Sena n its outspoken leader Sanjay Raut has visibly come in the open with the former’s direct n charade of attacks through umpteen tweets inviting film actresses too in the fray criticizing her for equating Mumbai with the Pakistan occupied Kashmir.

Not only this, but majority of Mumbaikars n those from Bollywood are badly behind her, criticizing for her derogatory remarks especially branding Mumbai as the POK under the present regime in Maharashtra.

The Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh has strongly condemned Kangana Ranaut for her POK remark and said the government is seriously thinking of registering a case against her with some MLAs of Shiv Sena demanding case of sedition.

Meanwhile the union government has asked the Maharashtra government to provide adequate security to Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut keeping in view threat to her life but Kangana has refused the Mumbai Police security saying that she would prefer the Himachal police security as she dosen’t trust the Mumbai police security at all.

Criticizing Kangana Ranaut for her tweet equating Mumbai to the POK, Bollywood actress Swara Bhaskara said in her statement shared with media : I have never been to POK so I don’t know what it feels like but to call India’s most dynamic city, financial capital and the city that has changed the lives and destiny of so many people, including hers …, to abuse that city and to compare it with POK n because you want to create a headline, is just petty, ungrateful n frankly ludicurous. If a muslim actor had made this comparison and said that they feel unsafe , we would have been behind them, for their blood said Bollywood actress.

Similarly, previously, another Bolly wood actor Renuka Shahane too had through a tweet strongly criticized Kangana writing : Dear @Kangana team#
Mumbai is a city where your dream of becoming a bollywood star have been fulfilled, one would expect from you to have some respect for this wonderful city. It’s appaling , how you compared Mumbai with POK.

However, after Shahane’s tweet Kangana didn’t stop but swiftly responded tweeting :

Dear Renukaji , When did criticizing the poor administration of the government became equal to the place being administered. I don’t believe, you are that naive. Are u also waiting like a blood thirsty vulture to pounce upon me and get a piece of my meat ? Expected better from you.

Indirectly terming her rivals as chaploos( sycophants) Kangana again tweeted: All chaploos who are showing their love for Maharashtra must know that I am the first actor in the history of Hindi cinema to bring Maratha Pride Shivaji Maharaj n Rani Lakshmi bai to the big screen and faced huge opposition during the release from the same people obviously referring to Shiv Sena and its leaders like Sanjay Raut.

Meanwhile Ritesh Deshmukh actor and son of former Congress CM of Maharashtra has also tweeted praising Maharashtra pride writing : Maharashtra is Hindustan.

Giving an open challenge to Shiv Sainiks n those opposing her entry in Mumbai after SS leader Sanjay Raut allegedly threatened her not to come to Mumbai after her derogatory tweets, Kangana Ranaut said Jiske Baap Mein Dum Hai Mujhe Rok Kar Dikhaye. I am coming to Mumbai by flight from Manali, Himachal Pradesh on 9th September n would be giving the details of my scheduled tweeted the actress.
