SRK's 'Mannat' in news for wrong reasons
The controversy over Shah Rukh Khan's palatial bungalow 'Mannat' has reached the Supreme Court with the filing of a petition alleging violations by the megastar while constructing his dream house.
The petition has alleged that there were violations of archaeological laws and coastal regulation zone in the construction of Mannat. Simpreet Singh and Amit Maruand of Mumbai approached the apex court challenging the Bombay High Court's order which had dismissed their petition against Khan.
The high court had, on January 28, dismissed the PIL filed by the duo and imposed a cost of Rs 20,000 on them saying that it was a "publicity petition". The PIL had alleged that the actor had constructed the building inside the compound of his bungalow in violation of environment and heritage laws.
Khan had, however, contended that there was no violation of rules and the construction was allowed by the municipal body. (PTI)
