There’s repair work going on at Anil Kapoor‘s Mumbai office for his production firm – Anil Kapoor Films. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation reportedly demolished a part of the actor’s office – which is on the fifth floor of the building named Savoy Chambers – over illegal construction, said mid-day. Last week, a portion of the office in West Santacruz and a partition was taken down by the BMC after there was no response from the actor’s team to a legal notice sent in September. However, a source close to the production house told mid-day that they cooperated with the BMC official fully when the demolition work began.
Anil Kapoor’s office will be under repair for the next few days, said the source, adding: “We cooperated with the officials to the best of our ability. It was obviously a loss for us, but rules are rules. We evacuated the office when they arrived.”
Speaking to mid-day, a BMC official said legal intimation was sent to Mr Kapoor, asking him to take down the alleged illegal construction. “In September, we had sent a notice under MRTP (Maharashtra Regional Town Planning) Act to the owner of the structure asking him to either regularise the part from Building Proposal department or remove the illegal construction. However, they did not take any action, so we removed the part altogether,” mid-day was told.
“On November 24, we carried out demolition work of cabin and partition inside the office of the structure,” the official added.
Last seen in Mubarakan, Anil Kapoor is currently holidaying in Germany with wife Sunita. He will next be seen in Fanney Khan, co-starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Rajkummar Rao.
