Mumbai: "Uddhav Thackeray, you abused me in your speech yesterday, called me 'namak haram', Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut takes at Maharastra Cheif Minister in her ferocious video message.
Thackeray in his recent speech at his Dussehra rally reportedly said that “ganja fields” are in Himachal Pradesh, which invited a chain of reaction from the actress. Kangana denounced the government in a series of tweets on her official Twitter handle which was followed by her video message.
She said, “You said such wrong things about Himachal, which is known as the birth-place of maa Parvati and is known as a 'dev Bhoomi'. Being a Chief Minister, you have tried to shame an entire state because you are upset with a girl, who is of your son's age.”
She further added, “CM you were upset with me because I compared Mumbai to Pakistan occupied Kashmir but in your speech, you compared India to Pakistan.”
In her video, Kangana went on to question those who campaign for women empowerment, but chose to stay silent when she was being "abused and threatened".
Bollywood's 'Queen' concluded by straightaway addressing Shivsena when she said, “You cannot be in power all the time. You are only a government servant and the people of Maharastra do not resonate with you, they are not happy with you. If a person loses one's honor, it cannot be regained.”
"Raut called me Haramkhor now Uddhav called me namak haram, he is claiming I won’t get food in my state if Mumbai does not give me shelter, shame on you I am your son’s age this is how you speak to a self-made single woman, Chief Minister you are the worse product of nepotism," the actor scribed on Twitter.
Without naming the actress he said "Someone said Mumbai is like PoK... they come to Mumbai for work and then defame the city. This amounts to namak haram.
"During his address, he also spoke about the alleged drug racket in Mumbai city and called it solely an act to defame the city. he went on taunting the actress and her home state of Himachal Pradesh. he said“They don’t know in our house we grow tulsi, not ganja. Ganja fields are in your state, you know where, not in our Maharashtra.”
