BMC on Wednesday (September 9) started the demolition of what it had earlier termed as “illegal alterations” at the Bandra bungalow of Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut. Soon, Bollywood celebrities came out in support of Kangana and slammed BMC for partially demolishing her property.
While debating on the issue of BMC demolishing Kangana Ranaut’s office premises within 24 hours of issuing a notice, Republic TV’s editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami, while highlighting the discrepancy in BMC’s style of working, said that the governing body gave other Bollywood celebs including Arjun Kapoor almost a year to deal with the issue of an alleged illegal construction site.
He said while referring to Arjun, “There is one person called Arjun Kapoor.. I don’t know they say he is a small time actor, I don’t know who he is.”
The statement started trending and Twitter went overboard with opinions and memes. Here are some epic reactions on Twitter:
For the unversed, in 2017, BMC demolished Arjun Kapoor’s terrace in Juhu, which had a make-shift gym. The civic body had issued a notice to the actor encroaching on the terrace by constructing a 30-by-16 sq ft brick room without permission.
