From the last 24 hours, Manikarnika actress Kangana Ranaut is making headlines for various reasons. Be it comparing Mumbai to POK, to abusing the BMC officials to calling them "Babur army" and openly challengingly Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackery. As per reports, a police complaint has been filed against the actress after she made statements against Uddhav Thackeray on social media.
Police complaint filed against Kangana Ranaut
On Thursday, a case was registered against Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut at Vikhroli police station in Mumbai for defaming Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray and stating that he has links with 'Bollywood Mafia'.
The complainant alleges that Kangana's video on social media on Wednesday defamed the CM even though he has no direct connection with the demolition. According to several reports in media, a defamation suit will also be filed against Kangana in the Vikhroli court in this regard. The complaint was filed by advocate Nitin Mane who registered it with Vikhroli police.

Kangana gets a legal notice, told to apologise
Meanwhile, in Mumbai, a former IPS officer has sent a legal notice to the 33-year-old actress, and sought an apology as well. Retired Assistant Commissioner of Police, Pradeep Lonandkar, in his notice, has asked the National Award-winner to issue a public apology over her controversial tweets on Mumbai and its police. He has asked the actress to delete the derogatory and defamatory posts tweeted by her on September 1 and 2 comparing Mumbai to PoK and against the Mumbai police and its commissioner.
The notice said the allegations levelled by Ranaut that the city commissioner of police was "intimidating" her and "encouraging social bullying" against her are completely false, frivolous, baseless and unfounded, and that she should issue an apology to the Mumbai Police Commissioner and the Mumbai police.
The Sena, a former ally of the National Democratic Alliance at the Centre, has said that Ranaut's remarks have hurt the sentiments of 13 crore Maharashtrians and sought action against her besides an apology.
