Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut congratulated the new Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Eknath Shinde, who took the oath as the 20th Chief Minister on June 30. The 'Dhaakad' actress shared a photo of the new CM and hailed his 'inspiring success story.' She also referred to him as one of the 'most important and powerful people' in India.
For the captions, Kangana Ranaut wrote, "What an inspiring success story....From driving auto-rickshaw for a living to becoming of the most important and powerful people in the country...congratulations sir" followed by a joined hand emotion.
Meanwhile, the 10-day-long Maharashtra political potboiler came to an end, with rebel Shiv Sena leader Eknath Shinde taking oath as the Chief Minister of Maharashtra and Bharatiya Janata Party's Devendra Fadnavis signing up as the deputy chief minister of the state.

The actress took a sharp jibe at Thackeray in her latest video posted on Instagram.

Jai Hind, Jai Maharashtra," Kangana Ranaut added.
Sharing the video, she wrote, "Jab paap badh jata hai toh sarvnaash hota hai aur usske baad sarajan hota hai (When evil takes over, destruction is imminent. After that, there is creation).. And the lotus of life blooms …"
