The actress soon took to Twitter and shared videos of the demolition alleging revenge by Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray.
Ranaut has alleged foul play behind what was initially believed to be a suicide— there is no evidence to the contrary yet— and a cover up by the state police. Her tirade against the state and other Bollywood personalities has pitted her against the state government led by Thackeray.

The Bombay High Court has placed a 'stay' on the demolition. According to IANS, Ranaut’s lawyer Rizwan Siddique had “challenged the BMC notice earlier in the morning before the high court, contending that there are no illegalities in the office works even as the civic demolition squad swooped on the premises in Bandra West.”
The Bombay High Court has now asked the BMC to file its reply to the actress’ plea challenging the demolition order by 3 p.m. on Thursday.
The ruckus in the country's financial capital was expected after Ranaut declared that she would be travelling from Mohali to Mumbai. She got herself a 'Y' category security, approved by the Union Home Ministry under Amit Shah, after threats from Shiv Sena leaders. The political drama has been the only go-to spot for all paparazzi today.
