Kangana Ranaut visited the famous Siddhivinayak temple and Mumba Devi temple in Mumbai on Tuesday.
Sharing pictures of the visit on Twitter, the Queen actor recalled the “hostility” she faced for standing up for her “beloved city”. Kangana was involved in a public spat with the ruling Shiv Sena earlier this year.
She tweeted: “The amount of hostility I faced for standing up for my beloved city Mumbai baffled me, today I went to Mumba devi and Shri Siddhivinayak ji and got their blessings, I feel protected, loved and welcomed. Jai Hind Jai Maharashtra.”
She and her sister-in-law Ritu were seen dressed in saris while her sister Rangoli wore a salwar-suit. In the images she can be seen surrounded by her security personnel.
Earlier, pictures and videos from her arrival in the city were doing the rounds on social media.
Following actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s death, Kangana had made a number of controversial statements. She even claimed she felt unsafe in the city and compared it to Pakistan-Occupied Kashmir.
The statements weren’t well received by the Shiv Sena, with party leader Sanjay Raut challenging her to return to the city.
However, she did visit the city in September only after she was provided with Y-plus security by the central government. However, while she was on her way to Mumbai, the Brihanmumbai Mumbai Corporation partially demolished her Pali Hill home on grounds of structural violations.
The actor alleged the action was politically motivated.
Since the early days of the pandemic, Kangana has been staying at her hometown Manali, making brief visits to Hyderabad for the shoot of her film Thalaivi.
