kangna-Rangoli-2MUMBAI: After controversial Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (Pok) remark on Twitter against Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s threat, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has decided to finally land in Mumbai and has tweeted about it.

She wrote: I see many people are threatening me to not come back to Mumbai so I have now decided to travel to Mumbai this coming week on 9th September. I will post the time when I land at the Mumbai airport.
Kangana Ranaut has challenged all, saying nobody can stop her from coming to Mumbai and on September 9, 2020, she will land at the airport and also share her arrival timings. She has been staying with her family in Himachal Pradesh ever since the deadly novel coronavirus pandemic and lockdown.

A day after Kangana Ranaut’s tweet accusing Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut threatening the actress to not return to Mumbai if she has no faith in the police has clarified his stand regarding the remark.
According to Raut “We don’t give threats to anyone, we believe in taking action. Those who are making comparisons with Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK), don’t know anything about Pok. We will not tolerate anything demeaning about Mumbai and Maharashtra.”
He added, “Mumbai police has risked its own life and saved the citizens at the time of 26/11 terror attacks. Even in 1992 blasts also they protected the city and people living in it. Several Mumbai police officers have lost their lives and made sacrifices during the deadly novel coronavirus outbreak.”
Kangana Ranaut has been naming and shaming several big Bollywood celebrities for fanning nepotism and recently in the drug conspiracy related to Sushant Singh Rajput case.

Meanwhile, the BJP, the NCP, the Congress and the Shiv Sena slammed the actor for drawing such comparison, which they said was unbecoming and disrespectful of the Maratha people.

On the other hand, Kangana Ranaut claimed that “many people [are] threatening her” ahead of her visit to Mumbai on September 9. In response, the actor said, “Kisi ke baap mein himmat hai to rok le (if anyone’s father has the guts to stop me, then try it).” She said Maharashtra is not someone’s father’s property.
In a series of tweets, Kangana Ranaut targeted those criticising her for recent posts on Twitter, saying, “Maharashtra belongs to only those who have strengthened the Maratha pride and I can say with confidence that I am a Maratha.”
The National Commission of Women (NCW) has taken a suo motu cognisance of Kangana Ranaut’s claims of receiving threats and demanded immediate arrest of a Shiv Sena MLA.

On Thursday, Kangana Ranaut had accused Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut of openly threatening her against returning to Mumbai. “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 (sic)?” Kangana Ranaut said in a tweet.
To this, Sanjay Raut said she must approach the police with evidence of his threats instead of “playing on Twitter”.Since then, political leaders in Maharashtra have hit out at the actor for comparing Mumbai with PoK.

Sanjay Raut, accused of threatening her, rubbished her comments saying she is a “mental case”. “Kangana Ranaut is a mental case. She is spitting in the plate she eats from. There are some political parties supporting her. Let her go to PoK. The government should fund for her two-day visit to PoK. If the government does not, we are ready to bear the cost for her trip to PoK,” Sanjay Raut told a TV Channel.
Responding to Kangana Ranaut’s tweet on criticism of the Mumbai Police and comparison of Mumbai to Pakistan-occupied Kashmir drew a sharp response from Maharashtra home minister Anil Deshmukh. He said that she ‘has no right to live in Maharashtra or Mumbai’ after making such comments.
Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said the actor has no right to live in Mumbai or Maharashtra after making such comparison. “Those who think Maharashtra or Mumbai is not safe for them, have no right to live in the state,” Anil Deshmukh said.
While,
Rangoli Chandel, Kangana’s sister and manager, hit back at him saying, “Aur tumhe yeh bolne ka right kisne diya (And who gave you the right to say this)? We shall come on 9th September to our home in Mumbai. Do whatever you can do.” She made this comment on her Instagram stories.
