Home Ministry Grants Y-Plus Security To Kangana Ranaut ahead of Mumbai Visit
Actor Kangana Ranaut has been granted Y-plus Category security by the Home Ministry ahead of her Mumbai visit on September 9, said officials.
Kangana Ranaut doesn’t know the art of mincing words and she has proved it times and again. The actress, who has been strongly voicing her opinion about Sushant Singh Rajput’s death case, stepped into boiling waters after she compared Mumbai with Pakistan occupied Kashmir. She has been granted Y-plus Category security by the Home Ministry ahead of her Mumbai visit on September 9, said officials.
The Y-plus category central cover entails deployment of about 10 armed commandos with the protectee, PTI reported.
The move came amid an escalating war of words between the actor and Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut after her “Mumbai feeling like Pakistan-occupied-Kashmir” comment on Thursday. She had also said that she feared Mumbai Police more than what she has dubbed as ‘movie mafia’.
Raut had hit back in Sena’s mouthpiece Saamna on Thursday, asking Kangana not to return to Mumbai for criticising Mumbai Police. “This issue concerns the pride of Maharashtra and there will be no compromise on this front. Ranaut needs to apologise for her PoK remarks or she will face the music from our women’s wing,” he had said in his editorial.
Needless to say, Sanjay’s cuss words haven’t gone down well with Kangana and the Tanu Weds Manu Returns have given a befitting reply to him.
Refusing to back down, Kangana had said that she will return to Mumbai on September 9 and said Raut is ‘not Maharashtra’. “Your people are threatening me, still I’ll come to Mumbai on September 9,” she said in a video message on Sunday. “Mr Sanjay Raut, you called me ‘haramkhor ladki’.
Earlier, Kangana Tweeted, ‘I see many people are threatening me to not come back to Mumbai. So I have now decided to travel to Mumbai this coming week on 9th September. I will post the time when I land at the Mumbai airport. Kisi ke baap mein himmat hai toh rok le.’
Kangana Ranaut's Father:
Also, she is at present at her family home in Manali. On Sunday, the actor’s father had also written to the Himachal Pradesh government, requesting security for her.
"Kangana Ranaut's father has given in writing asking for police protection. I also spoke to her sister yesterday. The Director-General of Police has been directed in this regard and she will be provided security here. We are discussing what can be done to provide security to her outside the state. As she is leaving for Mumbai on September 9," Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur had said.
