Kangana seeks Rs 2 cr in damages from BMC due to 'illegal demolition'

Mumbai: Actress Kangana Ranaut has served a notice to the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) seeking Rs 2 crore compensation from the civic body for carrying out 'illegal demolition' of her Bandra office in Mumbai.

On September 9, a team of BMC officials demolished portions of her office which according to the civic body were illegal. 

On the same day, the actress moved the Bombay High court seeking a stay on the demolition drive. 

A bench of justices S.J Kathawalla and R.I Chagla stayed the demolition.

The 33-year-old has now requested to amend the earlier petition and demanded that she be paid Rs 2 crore by the civic body. She has claimed that the BMC had damaged 40 percent of the total assets of the bungalow.
