Actor Kangana Ranaut's faceoff with the Maharashtra government and Chief Minister Uddhav Thackery has escalated to acrimonious levels.

On Sunday, Uddhav had without naming Kangana said: "People who have no means of livelihood in their home come to Mumbai and betray it. Mumbai is PoK, there are drug addicts everywhere - they are painting such a picture. They don't know in our house we grow tulsi, not ganja (marijuana). Ganja fields are in your state, you know where, not in our Maharashtra."

A day later, Kangana hit back at the Maharashtra Chief Minister.

In a series of tweets, Kanagana said: "... Uddhav (Thackeray) called me namak-haram (treacherous). He is claiming I won't get food in my state if Mumbai does not give me shelter. Shame on you. I am your son's age. This is how you speak to a self-made single woman. Mr Chief Minister, you are the worse product of nepotism."

"Chief Minister, I am not drunk on my father's power and wealth like you, if I wanted to be a nepotism product I could have stayed back in Himachal, I hail from a renowned family, I didn't want to live off on their wealth and favours, some people have self respect and self worth (sic)."

"Chief Minister you are a very petty person, Himachal is called Dev Bhumi it has the maximum number of temples also no zero crime rate, yes it has a very fertile land it grows apples, kiwis, pomegranate, strawberries one can grow anything here"

"You being a leader having such a vengeful, myopic and ill informed views about a state which has has been the abode of Lord Shiva and Maa Parvati along with many great saints like Markandya and Manu Rishi, Pandavas spent large part of their exile in Himachal Pardesh."

"You should be ashamed of yourself chief minister, being a public servant you are indulging in petty fights, using your power to insult, damage and humiliate people who don’t agree with you, you don’t deserve the chair you have acquired by playing dirty politics. SHAME."
