MUMBAI: Actor Shah Rukh Khan has been ordered by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation or BMC to demolish an allegedly illegal ramp constructed outside his Bandra bungalow Mannat.
A notice was sent to Mr Khan yesterday in which he was given a week to demolish the ramp. If he fails to do so at the end of the week, the BMC will remove it and send the bill to the actor. A report in mid-day says that sources close to Mr Khan claim that he had received no such notice.
A week ago, local MP Poonam Mahajan wrote to Municipal Commissioner Sitaram Kunte after Bandra residents complained to her. “I haven’t seen any documents regarding the notice; I have only heard the news by the media.
I have done my work. The residents had approached me as they were suffering, and I wrote the letter only because I felt for the cause. My letter wasn’t against any individual or organisation. The convenience of the common man is my prime motive. If the BMC has initiated action, I welcome it.”
Shah Rukh Khan vanity van is often parked on the ramp, which runs along Mannat. His neighbours have complained that the ramp prevents access to a large portion of the road and blocks the route from Bandstand to Mount Mary Church.
Shah Rukh Khan last appeared in the 2014 blockbuster Happy New Year. He is currently shooting his next movie Fan, parts of which are being filmed in and around his bungalow.
