‘Common citizen’ Kangana meets Maharashtra governor for ‘justice’
MUMBAI: Actor Kangana Ranaut, who is locked in a bitter battle with the ruling Shiv Sena in Maharashtra, met governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari on Sunday to complain about the “injustice” done to her. Kangana, who was accompained by her sister Rangoli, explained to the governor her “point of view” and sought “justice” during the 45-minute meeting, said sources.
Talking to reporters after the meeting at Raj Bhavan, Kangana said she is not a politician and had met the governor as a common citizen. “I told him about the injustice meted out to me and what happened was improper. It was indecent behaviour,” she said, adding that the governor heard her like a daughter.
The meeting took place days after the Sena-ruled BMC demolished alleged illegal alterations at Kangana’s Bandra bungalow following a verbal spat between the ruling party and her after she likened Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir and questioned the handling of the Sushant Singh Rajput case by the Mumbai Police.
Kangana later tweeted: “A short while ago, I met his Excellency the Governor of Maharashtra Shri Bhagat Singh Koshyari ji. I explained my point of view to him and also requested that justice be given to me. It will restore faith of common citizen and particularly daughters in the system.”
Refusing to comment on the meeting, Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut said, “The subject (Kangana) is over for us. We have stopped talking about her.”
