Kangana Ranaut’s recent Mumbai return was definitely not a pleasant one. The actress’s arrival from Himachal Pradesh saw a shocking sight as the BMC was seen tearing down her Mumbai office Manikarnika Films Pvt Ltd. While the BMC has already served her notice a day prior to the demolition/her return from Manali, Kangana has called a plea over the matter in the Bombay High Court.
Now, Kangana’s neighbor and celebrity fashion designer Manish Malhotra has come under the scanner for ‘illegal construction’. He was served with a notice by BMC for illegally turning his residential space into a commercial property. He has been given 7 days to respond.
A Republic report maintained that BMC has raised objections over alleged constructions at Manish’s bungalow which is also located at Pali Hill in Mumbai. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation has highlighted the unauthorized addition and alteration by way of erecting partitions and cabins and unauthorized construction of a structure or shed on the first floor of his management office at the bungalow.
The report also mentioned that the notice was sent to him under section 342 and 345 of the MMC Act while writing that he will liable for prosecution under Section 475 A if his explanations on why the illegal constructions should not be demolished are unsatisfactory.
Meanwhile, following the demolition of Kangana Ranaut’s office, the Bombay High Court ordered a stay on the demolition drive yesterday. Many celebrities have taken to their social media handles and called out the inappropriate actions of BMC and supported Kangana Ranaut.
