Mumbai: The petition filed by the actress Kangana Ranaut against the BMC in the Bombay High Court has been withdrawn. Kangana told the court that she will file an application for regularization with the Mumbai Municipal Body in connection with the alleged irregularity in the residential flats. Kangana Ranaut’s lawyer Birendra Saraf requested to withdraw the appeal filed against the court’s decision in December 2020. Kangana challenged the court against the notice of the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (MCGM) for illegally mixing three flats in a building.
Justice Prithviraj Chavan allowed Kangana to withdraw the appeal and said that no punitive action should be taken until the municipal body listens to the application for regularization and decides two weeks later. Justice Chavan said, “The appellant (Ranaut) is allowed to file an application for regularization before the MCGM in four weeks.”
