Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut demanded that the actor apologise for her comments against Mumbai and Maharashtra. Amidst the spat , Kangana is scheduled to reach Mumbai on 9th September.
The Himachal Pradesh government decided to provide security to Ranaut in the state and is also considering to extend it during her upcoming visit to Mumbai.The chief minister disclosed it while talking to reporters after a BJP legislature party meet in Shimla.
“This is our duty to provide her security as she is a daughter of Himachal Pradesh and a celebrity,” he added.
