In his legal notice, the former police officer has asked Ranaut to justify her comments or be prepared to pay “damages” for defamation.
Kangana has been granted Y-plus security from the centre on her arrival in Mumbai city on September 9.
Meanwhile, Shiv Sena MLA Pratap Sarnaik on Monday demanded a unanimous resolution in the Maharashtra Legislative Assembly for legal action against the actress, who he said has “maligned” the image of Maharashtra and Mumbai through her tweets.
Sarnaik told reporters he had submitted a letter of his demand to Deputy Speaker Narhari Zhirwal “who has directed state home minister Anil Deshmukh to take necessary action within 24 hours and to submit a report”.
He said various sections like citizens, political leaders and social workers are enraged by Ranaut’s remarks, and have sought action against her, but nothing happened so far.
“Elected representatives like me are sad that a girl from another state comes to Mumbai to become an actress, earns name and fame here, and in return she maligns the image of the city. But still no action is taken against her. She has continuously tweeted against Mumbai and Maharashtra,” Sarnaik stated in his letter.
The Sena leader, who represents Ovala-Majiwada constituency in Thane, alleged Ranaut had accused many film personalities of consuming drugs, “while some actors have accused her of being on drugs”.
