Mumbai: Aditya Pancholi and his family have lost tenancy rights to their Juhu bungalow, which they have renting since the 1960's. The Supreme Court ordered the actor, to vacate his flat by the end of the year.
In a bid to keep their flat, the Pancholis placed their appeal against their landlady in three different courts. However after loosing the hearings in all three courts, they appealed to the Supreme court early this October. Aditya was quoted as saying, “I’ll fight for my right to keep that home till my dying breath. It is where my roots are. So yes are now going to the Supreme Court.”
The judge was quoted saying, "You are a big man. You can buy a flat. Your conduct (harassing the landlord) is not acceptable."
As reported earlier, the Hate family, who owns the bungalow, brought proceedings against the Pancholis in July 1978 for non-payment of eight months rent between February and October 1977. The Pancholis, countered that they didn't receive a notice from the Hate's seeking payment of dues. In the span of three decades, the court observed that Pancholis did not deposit the money or pay the landlord by any other means.
The actor has not only lost his flat, but has also been orders to pay nearly Rs.13,000 that he owes as arrears to the landlady....
