The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has exempted Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut from the 14-day home quarantine rule for those arriving from outside the state, an official said.

Ms. Ranaut, who is currently in news because of the controversy over her remark comparing Mumbai to Pakistan- occupied-Kashmir and the BMC’s demolition of `illegal’ structures at her bungalow, arrived here earlier in the day.

A senior BMC official said she had made an online application for the exemption from home quarantine as she was on a short visit.

“Since she is staying here for less than a week, she was exempted under the `short-term visitor category’,” the officer told PTI.

According to BMC officials, Ms. Ranaut is scheduled to leave Mumbai on September 14.
