Varanasi (Uttar Pradesh) [India], May 19: Amid the Gyanvapi mosque controversy, actor Kangana Ranaut on Wednesday said that 'Lord Shiva doesn't need a structure, he exists in each and every particle in Kashi'.
Kangana is gearing up for the release of her upcoming movie Dhaakad. The film which also stars Arjun Rampal in a key role will hit theatres on May 20.
Kangana visited Kashi Viswanath Temple to seek blessings for her movie and also performed a special Ganga Arti.
Kangana Ranaut said, "Just like there is Shri Krishna everywhere in Mathura and Lord Shri Ram everywhere in Ayodhya, similarly Lord Shiva exists everywhere."
"Lord Shiva doesn't need a structure, he exists in each and every particle of Kashi", added the actor raising the 'Har Har Mahadev' slogan.
Her statement comes after the Supreme Court asked the Varanasi district magistrate to secure the wazu khana area where a Shivling was claimed to have been found during a videographic survey of the Gyanvapi mosque complex, without restricting the rights of Muslims to offer namaz.
Meanwhile, the hearing in the case could not take place in the Varanasi court on Wednesday as lawyers in the district were on a strike in protest against the remarks of a government official. The Supreme Court adjourned the hearing in the case till Friday.
