'Thanks to those who laugh at my broken dreams': Kangana
MUMBAI [Maha Media]: Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut on Friday hailed the Bombay High Court's verdict against the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) demolishing her office in September.
"When an individual stands against the government and wins, it’s not the victory of the individual but it’s the victory of the democracy," she tweeted.
Calling herself a 'hero', Kangana wrote, "Thank you everyone who gave me courage and thanks to those who laughed at my broken dreams. Its only cause you play a villain so I can be a HERO."
The HC on Friday passed a verdict ordering the BMC to compensate Kangana for all the damages caused to her Pali Hill office after proper evaluation.
The court also noted that the BMC proceeded on "wrongful grounds" in the case that was against the citizens' rights, a malice in law and reactionary in nature.
However, the court also advised Kangana to exercise restraint while airing views on public platforms. "However, irresponsible comments made by a citizen are best ignored by a State. No action by state for such follies of a citizen can lie except in accordance with law. State cannot take mala fide action against a citizen however distasteful her views are," it added.
The demolition of the office had come at a time when Kangana was engaged in a bitter war of words with Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut after her remarks that she feels unsafe in Mumbai and has no trust in the Mumbai Police after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
