On Tuesday, 08 September 2020, Home Minister Anil Desmukh said action would be taken against Kangana Ranaut based on an old interview which an ex-boyfriend claimed that she was taking drugs and also forced him to take drugs.

He said he received a letter pertaining to this matter from Shiv Sena MLAs Sunil Rabu and Pratap Sarnaik.

In a viral interview in 2016, Adhayan Suman had claimed: “On her birthday in March 2008 at The Leela, she had invited everybody that she had worked with. She said “Let’s do cocaine in the night.” I had smoked hash with her a couple of times before and didn’t like it, so I said no. I remember getting into the biggest argument that night because I said no to cocaine.””

Adhyayan Suman had also claimed that Kangana had physically assaulted her amid a lot of other lurid accusations.

Kangana had recently told Anubhav Sinha that he wasn't invited to parties with expensive drugs because they were expensive.

Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) officials on Tuesday posted a notice at Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut's bungalow here, pointing out many alterations undertaken there without the civic body's approval.

A BMC team went to the Pali Hill bungalow of the actor in suburban Bandra and posted the notice there as nobody was present to receive the notice, a civic official told PTI.

The notice pointed out over a dozen alterations in the bungalow, like a "toilet being converted into office cabin" and "new toilets being constructed along side the staircase", the official said.

The BMC has asked Kangana to respond within 24 hours to let the civic body know if she had any approvals for the work, he said.

Kangana had on Monday taken to Twitter to share videos of at her office premises here and expressed apprehension that the BMC may demolish the property.

However, the civic body had said the visit by its officals was part of a regular exercise undertaken to keep a tab on illegal constructions in Bandra.

Kangana's recent remark comparing Mumbai to Pakistan- occupied Kashmir (PoK) has drawn ire of the ruling Shiv Sena whose leaders are targeting the BJP for defending her.

Stating that she has done nothing illegal on her property, the actor had said BMC should show the illegal construction with a notice.
