Sanju star Ranbir Kapoor in hot waters
MUMBAI – Renowned Bollywood actor Ranbir Kapoor has been sued by the tenant of his apartment that he had leased out in Pune. He has been sued for allegedly not honoring the terms of the rental agreement.
Koregaon Park resident Sheetal Surywanshi, who had moved into the 6,094 square-feet apartment after renting it on leave and license basis, has sought damages and interest for being evicted much before the lock-in period stated in the agreement.
The license fee was decided at Rs 4 lakh per month for the first 12 months, and Rs 4.20 lakhs for the next 12. Over and above Suryawanshi paid a deposit of Rs 24 lakh.
The case is on in the Pune civil court, where Suryawanshi has sought damages to the tune of Rs 50.40 lakh and interest of Rs 1.08 lakh stating that her family suffered ‘severe inconvenience and hardships’ due to the sudden eviction.
According to her, in August 2017, 11 months after she moved in, she was asked to vacate the flat. She eventually moved out by October-end 2017.
