Recently, a civil court in Mumbai stated that actor Kangana Ranaut had committed grave violation in the plan while merging her flats. Kangana reacted to thd news by denying the statement in the ruling and saying that the flat was such when she had purchased it. In a tweet reacting to a news report, Kangana said that the building was constructed in such a way that there is one apartment on each floor and it was like this when she purchased it.
“Fake propaganda by Mahavinashkari government, I haven’t joined any flats, whole building is built the same way, one apartment each floor, that’s how I purchased it, @mybmc is only harassing me in the entire building. Will fight in higher court,” Kangana wrote on Twitter.
Last year, in September, the BMC demolished parts of Kangana’s office in Bandra citing illegal construction. Following this demolition, Kangana Ranaut had filed a petition seeking a restraint on the demolition being carried out by the civic body. In the recent ruling by the civil court, Judge LS Chavan cited that in order to merge her three flats on the fifth floor of a 16-storey building, Kangana covered the sunk area, duct area, common passage and converted the free Floor Space Index (FSI) into habitable area. This as per the ruling, were grave violations of the building plan.
Evidently,the clashes between Kangana and the BMC have been quite a few. It would be wrong to give a judgement so early. But let’s see how far this tiff lasts.
