Maharashtra Home Minister Anil Deshmukh received a threat call on Tuesday for criticising actress Kangana Ranaut during the Assembly Session yesterday. The threat call was received at the Minister's Nagpur office, an official confirmed on Wednesday.
"A girl (Kangana Ranaut ) from another State comes here to earn a livelihood and Mumbai accepts her but she insults the Mumbai Police. This is sad. What she said is irresponsible. If you insult Maharashtra, people will not tolerate it. Maharashtra belongs to the BJP too, all parties should condemn her," the NCP Minister had said.
He later asked Mumbai Police to probe 'the Queen' actress into the alleged drug nexus.
This decision from Deshmukh comes at a time when Ranaut and Udhhav Thackeray-led government have been locked in a face-off ever since the actress stated that she has no trust in the Mumbai Police after the death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput.
Yesterday, responding to the state Home Minister's statement, Ranaut said that she will fully cooperate with the police and asked them to collect her blood samples.
"I am more than happy to oblige the Mumbai Police and Home Minister Anil Deshmukh. Please do my drug tests, investigate my call records if you find any links to drug peddlers ever I will accept my mistake and leave Mumbai forever, looking forward to meeting you," she tweeted.
