Kangana Ranaut's tiff with the Maharashtra Government has just gone from bad to worse. It all started with the actress calling out Mumbai Police and saying she feels scared in Mumbai. Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut then asked her to refrain from coming to the city if she feels scared. Later in an interview, the political leader even addressed Kangana as 'haramkhor ladki'. Now, in an interview with Times Now, Kangana Ranaut has reacted to the remark.
Kangana Ranaut stated that she searched the dictionary to know the meaning of the word, and said it means, 'muftkhor', one who eats for free. She then went on to say that she is the highest paid actress, and that she has paid Rs 15 to 20 crore as tax. She further stated that she has generated employment for her staff members, for crew members of her films and the people working in theatres when her films release. She says she pays a hefty tax to the Maharashtra Government to stay and work here, so she is not 'muftkhor'.
Check out her reaction below:

Earlier, in an interview with India Today, Sanjay Raut had defended his Haramkhor Ladki remark by saying, "I just said, if you have a problem with Mumbai then don't come here. Harmkhor remark has also been taken out of context ... in Marathi it means 'beiman' or 'naughty'. I said it in that context." Later he also stated that "Matter is over For Me."
Meanwhile, the Manikarnika actress stayed in headlines as BMC demolished parts of her office in Mumbai citing it as illegal construction.
