Mumbai: After one week of bitter war with actress Kangana Ranaut, Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut said that the ‘episode’ is now over for his party.
His remarks come after meeting party president and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
Raut told reporters, “Kangana Ranaut’s episode is over. We have forgotten it. We are busy with our daily, government, and social functions.”
He said that he met the Chief Minister to discuss the events related to the party.
Amid some media reports which claimed that Congress President Sonia Gandhi and NCP mentor Sharad Pawar have expressed displeasure over the episode, the Shiv Sena MP said it was “misinformation”.
Raut said, “Whether it is Pawar saheb or Sonia Ji, no one has expressed displeasure.”
The war between Ranaut and Sena was taking place following Sushant Singh Rajput’s death after which the actress compared Mumbai with Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir (PoK).
Later Sanjay Raut purportedly said, “We kindly request her not to come to Mumbai. This is nothing but an insult to Mumbai Police.”
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC), which is governed by the Shiv Sena, on Wednesday removed some “illegal changes” built on Ranaut’s bungalow in Bandra. However, the Bombay High Court later ordered a stay on it.
The 33-year-old actor, who returned to Mumbai from his home state of Himachal Pradesh on Wednesday, alleged that the Maharashtra government was targeting him due to a confrontation with the Shiv Sena.
