Kangana Ranaut created a stir again yesterday. The actress reacted to Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut’s tweet, claiming that she was being threatened. If this was not enough, the Manikarnika actress said that Mumbai now feels like Pakistan-occupied Kashmir. As expected, this has not gone well with most Twitterati. And it features artists like Swara Bhaskar, Renuka Sahane and Sonu Sood.
For the dissidents, Kangana yesterday blocked several celebrities and media portals on Twitter. According to him, those users were either bullies / trolls and that is only for ‘constructive criticism’. In another response tweet by Sanjay Raut, he wrote, “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?”
Hum Aapke Hai Koun…! fame Renuka Sahane slammed the actress for her tweet. She reacted, “Dear @KanganaTeam I am all for criticizing Govts. But “why Mumbai is feeling like POK” seems to me like a direct comparison between Mumbai & POK. Your comparison was really in bad taste. As a Mumbaikar I did not like it! Maybe it was naive of me to expect any better from you. “
To this, Kangana Ranaut replied, “Dear @renukash ji when did criticising the poor administration of a government became equal to the place being administered , I don’t believe you are that naive, were you also waiting like a blood thirsty vulture to pounce and get a piece of my meat ? Expected better from you”
Sonu Sood too indirectly took a dig. “मुंबई .. यह शहर तक़दीरें बदलता है। सलाम करोगे तो सलामी मिलेगी।;” read his tweet.
Swara Bhasker tweeted, “As an outsider, an independent working woman & resident of #Mumbai for the past decade. Just want to say that Bombay is one of easiest & safest cities to live & work in. Thank you @MumbaiPolice @CPMumbaiPolice for your relentless efforts & service to keep #AamchiMumbai safe”
Riteish Deshmukh too shared, “मुंबई हिंदुस्तान है।”
