There has been a sharp reaction from the political world of Maharashtra over a comment by Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut on comparing Mumbai to Pakistan Occupied Kashmir (PoK). Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh said on Friday that if Kangana feels insecure here, she has no right to stay here. State Home Minister Deshmukh said we have seen how Mumbai Police soldiers have ‘sacrificed’ their lives during the Corona pandemic.

He said that we condemn it. Mumbai and Maharashtra Police protect us. If one feels insecure while living in Mumbai or Maharashtra, then one has no right to live here. Kangana is currently in Himachal and has reiterated her statement against Maharashtra and the ruling Shiv Sena-NCP-Congress alliance here.
She tweeted and said, many people are threatening me not to come back to Mumbai, so I have now decided to go to Mumbai on September 9 in the coming week. I will post the time when I land at the Mumbai airport. If there is any courage in someone’s father, stop it.

Responding to Maharashtra minister Deshmukh’s comment, Kangana said, “He is taking decisions on my democratic rights himself. Within a day, PoK transformed into the Taliban … (“He is taking his own calls on my democratic rights, from POK to Taliban in one day.”). Kangana tweeted while also targeting the police, ‘After the death of a major star, I spoke about the drug and movie mafia racket. I do not trust the Mumbai Police because they have ignored the complaints of Sushant Singh Rajput. He told everyone that they would kill him and he was killed. If I feel insecure, does it mean that I hate the industry and Mumbai. ‘
