Back in September 2020, parts of Manikarnika actress Kangana Ranaut’s Mumbai office were demolished by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), for illegal construction. In a significant development in actor Kangana Ranaut’s Mumbai office demolition case, as per the latest report in India TV, the Maharashtra Human Rights Commission (MHRC) has issued summons to the BMC commissioner. The BMC carried out a demolition drive and bulldozed illegal parts of Kangana’s office situated in Pali Hill, Bandra. Back then, the demolition was stalled after the Bombay High Court ordered a stay.
