The 'Panga' actress, in her plea filed at the High Court on September 9, had sought that the demolition of her Pali Hill bungalow by the BMC be declared illegal.
A week after the Shiv Sena-led Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) demolished the 'illegal alterations' at actress Kangana Ranaut's Pali Hill bungalow, the Bombay High Court, on Thursday, asked the party's spokesperson Sanjay Raut to file a reply to the actress' plea in the HC.

A bench of Justices S J Kathawalla and R I Chagla also directed the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation's (BMC) H-ward officer Bhagyawant Late to file his reply to the plea.

Late had signed the demolition notice served to Ranaut on September 7.


On Tuesday, Ranaut's lawyer senior counsel Birendra Saraf submitted in the court a DVD containing a speech in which Raut allegedly made a comment threatening the actress.

Following this, the HC bench had permitted Ranaut to make both Raut and Late parties to the case.

Justice Kathawalla said the bench will begin hearing the petitioner (Ranaut) on Friday and Raut could file his reply anytime before his turn to put forth his arguments in the court.

The bench, however, directed the BMC to file the reply on Late's behalf by Monday, saying it could not delay the hearing.

"We cannot leave the demolished house the way it is. The building is demolished partly, and in the heavy monsoon, we cannot leave it in this state. We will start hearing the petitioner tomorrow," the bench said.

The 'Panga' actress, in her plea filed at the High Court on September 9, had sought that the demolition of her Pali Hill bungalow by the BMC be declared illegal.

The BMC in its affidavit filed in the high court denied the allegation.

Actress Kangana Ranaut is used to making news, be it for winning a National Award, creating waves at the box office, or even for her personal life. The actress is known to not mince her words, even if it means things not always working in her favour. While Ranaut doesn’t shy away from commenting on issues she feels strongly about, recently the ‘Manikarnika’ actress has been receiving flak from a section of the media.

However, it’s not just Ranaut’s statements that have come under scrutiny, but also that of her sister and manager, Rangoli Chandel. Chandel’s tweets often slamming anyone and everyone in Bollywood, have received criticism. Several fans have even taken to the microblogging site to say that Rangoli, whose Twitter bio reads 'Manager & Sister to #KanganaRanaut' may be harming the 'Queen' star's image and overshadowing her work. some have even requested the actress to hire a professional publicist.

But Kangana isn't the first celebrity to be managed by a family member. Several others have also taken the family route when it comes to professional matters.

Queen Bey and her father-manager Mathew Knowles's fallout was the stuff of headlines. While the 67-year-old now claims that he shares a good relationship with both his daughters, Beyoncé and Solange, after having learnt to switch from manager to father, it wasn't always the case. Mathew not only managed 'Destiny's Child' but reportedly also trained three members to sing.

Mathew was around right from the beginning of Beyoncé's career, until over a decade later when on March 28 in 2011 the 'Sorry' singer announced that the duo were going their separate ways, and the decision was mutual.

Since the split, the singer has been managed by her own company, Parkwood Entertainment.
