On September 9th, BMC demolished Kangana's office after finding the construction illegal. On the civic body action, Kangana filed a petition against BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation and demanded Rs. 2 crores for demolition at her bungalow. In the petition, she stated that almost 40% of her property has been destroyed by the BMC. List of property destroyed as collateral damage includes a two-seater vintage sofa, coffee table, two antique mirrors, editing equipment and desktop, crystal chandelier, Italian lights, and other decorative stuff. Kangana Ranaut had purchased the Pali Hills bungalow in 2017 and had renovated it in January this year.

Now the BMC has responded to Kangana Ranaut's plea, civic body officials said that the demand of Rs 2 crore was an abuse of the process of law. The civic body also urged the court to dismiss Kangana Ranaut's petition and request them to impose a cost on her for filing such a plea.

According to media reports, BMC said, "The writ petition and the relief sought for therein constitute an abuse of power. The petition not be entertained and should be dismissed with costs."  Well, on the day of the demolition, Kangana's lawyer moved to Bombay High Court, a bench led by Justice SJ Kathawalla put a stay on the demolition and even questioned BMC on the action taken by civic body officials. If in case BMC wouldn't be able to prove that the construction at Kangana property wasn't legal, then they may have to compensate the actress the sum amount of money according to the court instruction.
