After Kangana Ranaut, Manish Malhotra issued notice by BMC over 'unauthorised construction' in Bandra bungalow
The BMC demolished "most of the 14 illegal alterations" made at the Bandra bungalow of Bollywood actor Kangana Ranaut
The latest celebrity on the BMC radar is fashion designer Manish Malhotra. After Kangana Ranaut, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has issued a notice to Manish Malhotra for "unauthorised construction" at the leading fashion designer's house here, according to the Press Trust of India.
Malhotra has been asked to reply in seven days and give testimony as to why the building should not be pulled down, a civic official said in Mumbai.
The notice also asks why there was a change in the building's status from residential to commercial office on first floor of Malhotra's bungalow on Nargis Dutt Road in Pali Hill, Bandra.
In the notice, issued on September 9, BMCs H-ward office has listed four alterations and asked Malhotra to submit proof in seven days "to show that the said building or work or change of user" is not unauthorised.
The notice said that illegal modifications include "addition and alteration by way of erecting partitions/cabins on first floor, unauthorised construction of two structures with brick masonry wall and AC sheet roof on second floor terrace."
