He is taking his own calls on my democratic rights, from POK to Taliban in one day ðÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ https://t.co/oUZ5M7VKAf— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) September 4, 2020
The actor had in an earlier tweet replied to Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut and had compared the city to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir. The Sena leader had in his party’s mouthpiece asked Ranaut to refrain from returning to Mumbai city.
Sanjay Raut Shiv Sena leader has given me an open threat and asked me not to come back to Mumbai, after Aazadi graffitis in Mumbai streets and now open threats, why Mumbai is feeling like Pakistan occupied Kashmir? https://t.co/5V1VQLSxh1— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) September 3, 2020
Raut’s statements in the Sena mouthpiece had come after the actor criticised Mumbai Police in a series of tweets. The actress had tweeted that she would not accept protection from Mumbai Police to expose ‘drug mafia’ and would require security either from Haryana Police or the Central Government. She had also said that she is more scared of the city force than the 'movie mafia'.
