Uddhav Thackeray the wheel of time always turns. Today I have felt what had happened with Kashmiri Pandits”.
She further said, “Today I promise to the country that I will make a film on Kashmir too, and will wake up my countrymen. What has happened to me has some meaning. It means something”. The actress says, “In the last 24 hours, my office was suddenly declared illegal. They demolished everything inside, including the furniture of my office, and now I am receiving threats that they will come to my house, and break it as well. I am happy with my decision, the world’s best CM in the film Mafia.”
The matter turned into a Twitter fight after Sanjay Raut, a leader of the Shiv Sena, criticized the actress.
