It is usually hard to compute entanglement entropy and mutual information for 
conformal field theories (CFT). Ryu-Takayanagi proposals allows us to find the 
same quantities using calculations in gravity. In this talk I will show how to 
find holographic entanglement entropy and scrambling time for BTZ black hole 
perturbed by a heavy (backreacting) particle. Holographic bulk description 
improves on the schock-wave approximation in 3d bulk dimensions. I will also 
discuss current attempts to generalize this calculation to the rotating BTZ 
black hole.
