MUMBAI : Thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah for "protecting" Kangana Ranaut, her mother said that the actress' life is at risk in Mumbai.
"I thank Amit Shah and [PM] Narendra Modi who have protected my daughter," Kangana Ranaut's mother Asha Ranaut said.
Speaking to Aaj Tak, Asha Ranaut called the Shiv Sena cowards. "India supports my daughter. Why this injustice? This is not Bal Thackeray's Shiv Sena. It [Shiv Sena] is coward. What type of government is this?"
Taking a dig at Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray, Asha Ranaut said that Kangana Ranaut's life is "threatened" in the state. " India is watching how things are being done with a motive of taking revenge," she said while attacking the state government.
Referring to Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut's comments on Kangana, Asha Ranaut said: "Kangana is my daughter. How can he [Raut] talk like this about her? Kangana never lies. I want to appeal to Shiv Sena not to do anything like this."
"Kangana will stay here [in Maharashtra]. She has spent 15 years there, half of her age. Maharashtra is for all," Asha Ranaut further said.
Shiv Sena, on the other hand, has said that the action was taken by the BMC and not the state government. However, a Mumbai-based advocate filed a complaint against Kangana Ranaut for allegedly using foul language against Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray. The advocate is also likely to move the court with a defamation case against Kangana Ranaut.
