After her long standing verbal battle with Shiv Sena MP, Sanjay Raut, actor Kangana Ranaut has been provided with Y level security by the Home Ministry.
Kangana's sister, Rangoli and her father requested Himachal Pradesh Chief Minister, Jai Ram Thakur to give the actor security after the spat.
Kangana Ranaut's father has given in writing asking for police protection. I also spoke to her sister yesterday. The Director-General of Police has been directed in this regard and she will be provided security here. We are discussing what can be done to provide security to her outside the state as she is leaving for Mumbai on September 9.

ये प्रमाण है की अब किसी देशभक्त आवाज़ को कोई फ़ासीवादी नहीं कुचल सकेगा,मैं @AmitShah जी की आभारी हूँ वो चाहते तो हालातों के चलते मुझे कुछ दिन बाद मुंबई जाने की सलाह देते मगर उन्होंने भारत की एक बेटी के वचनों का मान रखा, हमारे स्वाभिमान और आत्मसम्मान की लाज रखी, जय हिंद 🙏 https://t.co/VSbZMG66LT— Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) September 7, 2020
