A complaint has been filed against Kangana Ranaut and her sister Rangoli in Mumbai’s Khar police station for not paying due brokerage on her bungalow in the upmarket Pali Hill, reports Hindustan Times. The actor had bought the Rs 20.07 crore house last year at Bandra's Pali Hill, as per reports. Pali Hill, where top stars including the Kapoors, Raveena Tandon, Sanjay Dutt, Gulzar, Kareena, Katrina, Aamir Khan etc say, considered the poshest locality in Mumbai outside south Mumbai.
Kangana’s bungalow was bought in September 2017, at the cost of Rs 20.07 crore. The total area of the bungalow is 3,075 sq ft and the actor paid Rs 1.03 crore as stamp duty. According to a DNA report, the complainant, Prakkash G Rohira, claimed that Kangana has not paid him the complete consideration towards the brokerage. The actor’s team said in a statement to the daily that the brokerage of 1%, Rs 20 lakh, was paid as per industry standards but now the man is demanding 2% brokerage now.
Kangana told the paper, “My finance team was taking care of the deal, the complainant was paid 1 per cent brokerage close to Rs 22 lakh which as per Industry standards; now he is asking for 2 per cent brokerage. At no point two per cent brokerage was decided on. The money transferred is through the bank and all documents are available.”
The broker, however, said he was sure of his case and will be giving in all proofs in due time. Shutting down the allegation, Kangana, in a statement, said, “I paid the agency who did the Bungalow deal for me for one per cent brokerage which adds to Rs 22 lakh. Their dues have been paid many months ago. The said person is one of the brokers, who offered this deal to me. My finance team never dealt with him directly but now he is harassing us for an additional Rs 22 lakh.”
“He is claiming two per cent of the transaction made from my end, which was never promised to him before or after the deal. So, this doesn’t make sense and we have made it clear to the cops as well, as we have all the evidence,” Kangana said on the subject.
