Am not a politician, says Kangana: What transpired in her meeting with governor

Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut met Maharashtra Governor BS Koshyari on Sunday amid the ongoing tussle between her and the Shiv Sena, which went a notch higher after the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) razed the allegedly illegal portion of her Mumbai office on September 9.

BMC’s demolition drive was later stayed by Bombay High Court.

Kangana said she apprised the Governor about the situation — how she has been subjected to ‘injustice’ by the government, She said to the governor that she is being harassed for raising her voice. She doesn’t feel safe. “I am no politician. I have no connection with politics. I presented my thoughts as a commoner,” Kangana said after the meeting. Her comments come amid speculations that the actor might join politics.“I hope justice will be given to me. That will restore the faith in system,” Kangana said. Kangana also thanked the Governor for listening to her as “a daughter”, the actor said.

Kangana was accompanied by her sister Rangoli Chandel as she went to meet the governor. Before meeting the governor, the actor met Karni Sena leaders who visited her residence on Sunday.

Maharashtra chief minister Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday addressed a press conference where he said the Maharashtra government will brave all political storms, without naming Kangana or mentioning the issue. Earlier, the Maha Vikas Aghadi government distanced itself from BMC’s action regarding Kangana’s office.
