The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation or BMC is apparently the largest and richest civic body in India. Recently, BMC demolished actress Kangana Ranaut’s office in Bandra citing illegal construction.
But this is not the first time the corporation has landed at Bollywood celebs’ premises to pull down construction alterations.
Here’s a list of Bollywood celebs who were served notices by the BMC.
1- Kangana Ranaut
On September 9, BMC demolished the illegal parts of Kangana Ranaut’s office. According to BMC, there were 14 items of unauthorized construction at the office that was set up in January.
2- Shah Rukh Khan
In 2015, the BMC demolished a concrete ramp constructed outside SRK’s house, Mannat. The ramp was reportedly used to park his vanity van.
3- Arjun Kapoor
In 2017, the BMC demolished a 30X16 feet makeshift gym that actor Arjun Kapoor constructed on the terrace of his Juhu building. After a wait of 10 months after its notice, the BMC finally demolished the construction.
4- Kapil Sharma
In 2016, comedian-actor Kapil Sharma tweeted out his angst for allegedly being asked to pay a bribe of ₹5 lakhs to BMC amidst renovations to his office space in Versova.
The BMC said the Versova construction was illegal and that Kapil’s flat in Goregaon was in a building that was built on a plot that was near the mangroves. The latter property’s construction was in violation of the Coastal Regulation Zone II rules.
5- Priyanka Chopra
In 2018, Priyanka Chopra was sent a notice by the BMC for unauthorized construction on the premises of her Oshiwara office and the adjoining commercial premise rented out by the actress.
