As Mumbai witnessed a major power cut after a failure in the central grid of TATA Power at Kalva-Padghe powerhouse, Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut, who has been on a verbal spat with the Maharashtra government off late, took a swipe at Shiv Sena MP Sanjay Raut on Monday.

Taking to Twitter, the Queen actor wrote, “#Powercut in Mumbai, meanwhile Maharashtra government." Here’s a screenshot of Ranaut’s tweet:

A photo of stand-up comedian Kunal Kamra and Shiv Sena leader Sanjay Raut posing with a toy bulldozer from an episode of a podcast they shot together was shared on Twitter by Kangana Ranaut.

Kangana and Raut have been engaged in war of words since last month after the actress took a dig the Maharashtra government, comparing Mumbai with Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK).

Earlier on Sunday, the actress had shared the same image of Raut and Kamra and alleged that her claims against the government for the "illegal demolition" of her Bandra office were "validated".

“Even though I faced massive harassment,financial losses, mental and emotional torture but Maharashtra Government’s incompetence and political innocence stands exposed so my struggles were all worth it, such mockery of illegal demolition of my house validates my claims about them," Kangana wrote in her tweet.
