When Kangana Ranaut compared Mumbai with Pakistan occupied Kashmir, all hell broke loose in Maharashtra's capital. Numerous ministers, including Sanjay Raut, criticising the actress for her comment. The situation escalated when Raut deemed Kangana "haramkhor" and BMC charged into Kangana's office space to tear down "illegal constructions". While the bitter of exchange of words continues, the Shiv Sena member penned in his column in the party's mouthpiece Saamana questioned the silence of Bollywood celebrities over Kangana's comment. He mentioned Akshay Kumar's name in particular. 

As reported by Hindustan Times, the minister said "half of the film industry" should have come forward to defend Mumbai when Kangana spoke about the comparison. He compared Bollywood's silence over the comment with Pandavas' silence when Draupadi was disrobed. “Is Mumbai only for making money?” Raut asked. He deemed the whole episode as a "conspiracy" to defame Mumbai.

According to Republic TV, the minister also spoke about the video Kangana shared after her office was vandalised last week. In the video, she addressed Maharashtra CM Uddhav Thackrey as "Tu." He claimed that "Mumbai natives" were in support with the actress. He also added that it is an "insult" shown that Marathi-speaking Union Ministers did not show their disagreements with her comments.

"An actress humiliates the chief minister and people of the state shouldn't react, what kind of one-sided freedom is this?" he asked in the piece, as reported by NDTV. He also referred to her comment where she compared her office's demolishment with Ram Mandir and wrote, "When her illegal construction in the city, which she calls as Pakistan, is demolished, she calls the demolished structure Ram mandir. You are crying hoarse when there is a surgical strike on the illegal construction. What kind of a game is this?" 

Kangana is set to meet Governor Bhagat Singh Koshiyari today.

All these Bollywood fakes are there only to make money. They talk about patriotism only if it is commercially profitable to them. Otherwise they are dumb, deaf and blind. People like Kangana, womanizer Akshay etc are outsiders who have made all their money in Maharashtra, but now degrade the state. It’s a shame. I hope they not able to do any more business in Maharashtra. Shun them.

Raut had no problem when Bwood biggies were silent about SSR’s death. They are silent now too. What goes around comes around. Moreover Bwood biggies are worried about their future and secrets coming out in the drug case.

Raut and Kangana are creatures of the same species. Immoral, vindictive, opportunists. Its their way or the highway. Let them fight. India is well rid of such.

B'Town is silent now. Ye toofan se pehle wali shanti hai. Kuch bada karne wale hai ye B'Towners apne haters ke khilaaf. Mark my words.

B town is silent bc for the first time ever the whole world is watching them and their involvement with drug cartel and money laundering. Too many high profile people associated with politians and b town have been deemed to have “committed suicide” when proof like forensic evidence shows murder. These people were about to expose the drug cartel and money laundering operations. Sushant may have been one of these people where suicide was declared within a day. Such mafia killings have to end. The world is watching.

B-town is silent about everything because they know that the industry as it stood has completely crumbled. Anyone who dares to raise their head is instantly targeted and not forgiven. The audience has had enough and no longer going to part with their hard earned money. The have other worries than kangana. How do they sustain their lifestyle with no work and no mafia money. Also worried whether they are next on rheas hit list.
