Shahid Kapoor and Vidya Balan share the same building. Both live in Juhu’s plush sea-facing Praneta Apartments. While Vidya lives on the third floor, Sasha and Mira stay on the ground floor.
Recently, we got the sad news of Vidya being down with dengue. The actress has now stopped work and will resume only after she’s fit to shoot.
Two of her neighbours, including actor Shahid Kapoor, were served notices by the BMC on Friday, for failing to prevent breeding of aedes aegypti mosquito inside their swanky apartments on Juhu Tara road.
The BMC’s insecticide department, during a surveillance drive on Friday, found breeding inside Shahid’s swimming pool that was apparently lying unused. Shahid lives two floors below Vidya’s flat in the Praneta apartments. The notice has been served under section 382 of the BMC Act that attracts a fine of upto Rs 10,000.
Shahid’s spokesperson told a daily, “Shahid is concerned about the findings of BMC in his building and in the locality, especially so with a newborn in his house. He is also grateful to the BMC for the check conducted in the locality, which is vulnerable during the rainy season and because of its proximity to the sea.”
