According to the Times of India report, BMC filed a complaint against the actor on January 4. In the complaint, BMC stated that Sonu converted the building named Shakti Sagar, on Juhu’s AB Nair Road into a hotel without its permission. The Mumbai civic body has asked the Juhu police to take cognizance of the offence committed by the actor. This is under the Maharashtra Region and Town Planning (MRTP) Act citing unauthorised additions, alteration and change of user.
But Sonu Sood denying the charges said that he has BMC permissions for change of user. Speaking to the daily he said, “I have already taken approval for change of user from BMC. It was subject to the approval of MCZMA. This permission hasn’t come due to Covid-19. There are no irregularities. I always abide by the law. This hotel was used to house Covid-19 warriors during the pandemic. If permissions don’t come, I will restore it back to a residential structure. I am appealing against BMC’s complaint in the Bombay high court.”
