After the Brihanmumbai Corporation (BMC) demolished portions of Kangana Ranaut's Pali Hill office in Mumbai citing 'illegal alterations', the Manikarnika actress has now reportedly demanded a compensation of Rs 2 crore from the civic body.
Last week, BMC partially razed down Kangana's office, amid her war of words with Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut. The demolition drive was stalled mid-way after a stay order from Bombay High Court. The court also slammed BMC for its hasty decision.
Kangana Ranaut Amends Her Earlier Petition Filed Against BMC
Kangana had moved the Bombay High Court against the demolition drive on her property. Now, as per a report in Mumbai Mirror, the actress has now requested to amend the earlier petition filed against BMC, and demanded a compensation of Rs 2 crore from the civic body.

The list of property destroyed as collateral damage include three seater vintage sofa, two seater vintage sofa, antique pieces, chairs, crystal chandelier, two antique mirrors, coffee table, exclusive designer chair, Italian lights, chashmere shawl, 10-15 first edition books among others.
More Details About Kangana's Petition
The Mumbai Mirror report further stated that the actress seeks the High Court's declaration that the BMC demolition drive on her property on September 9 is illegal. The matter will be heard by the Supreme Court next week. If the civic body fails to prove that the construction on Kangana's property was illegal, they will have to pay the compensation to Kangana according to the court's order.
