The demolition on Kangana Ranaut’s bungalow in Mumbai was strongly condemned by many Bollywood celebrities and they condemned the BMC action. Now, the Indian Motion Picture Producers Association (IMPPA), a body of filmmakers, has expressed their support for Kangana.
Statement of IMPPA
The statement issued by IMPPA states that this is neither true for the Government of Maharashtra nor for Kangana Ranaut. This step taken by the Maharashtra government and BMC is completely wrong and condemnable. IMPPA president TP Aggarwal said that BMC should have called Kangana before demolition the office. At least we should have given time. It is never the case that property is demolished on such short notice of one day.
Aggarwal said that Kangana is a respected and good member of IMPPA. She is an artist who has won national awards. However, TP Aggarwal also pointed out certain statements made on Kangana’s nepotism. He said that nepotism is there in every industry. It is not high in the film industry. If it was, Kangana would not have been such a big star.
Film industry is not drug addict
He also objected to Kangana’s assertion that the entire industry is involved in drugs. If so many people took drugs then there would have been investment of drugs mafia in the film industry. As far as I think, 5-7 percent of the people will be taking drugs and this happens in every industry. By calling the film industry a drug addict, you are blocking the funds coming into it.
Aggarwal further said that if Kangana’s house has been built incorrectly, then demolish it, but why only Kangana? Break all the illegal constructions in the whole of Mumbai.
BMC ransacked Kangana’s office at Pali
Let us tell you that on Wednesday, BMC ransacked the residential office of Kangana at Pali Hill, on the allegations of illegal construction. Earlier, the BMC team had visited Kangana’s office and posted a notice of illegal construction at the gate, which Kangana responded to through her legal team, but the BMC did not accept that answer and proceeded to demolish. However, Kangana gets a stay from the Bombay High Court. High court seeks response from BMC on their petition.
