Mumbai, June 3: Khar police recently registered an FIR against veteran Bollywood actor Rishi Kapoor for allegedly cutting down more branches of trees than permitted by the civic authority.

Police also registered the FIR against the contractor, appointed by him, under Section 8, read with Section 21 of the Maharashtra Protection and Preservation of Tree Act.

The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) had filed a complaint against Kapoor for chopping off six branches that were coming in the way of construction work at his Pali Hill bungalow in suburban Bandra, police said today.

Kapoor said, “I had taken all required permission to do so, which I have provided them to see. This is plain harassment from jealous neighbours which was expected.”

Police said they will record statements of all concerned and accordingly decide the action. Civic officials said the tree-cutting was illegal and they were not convinced with the actor’s explanation, so they insisted that police register the FIR.Kapoor had obtained permission for cutting six branches but it was found that more had been chopped off, said Ramchandra Jadhav, Senior Police Inspector of Khar Police Station.

Police had initially registered a non-cognizable (NC) offence against the actor, he said.

Now, a case has been registered against Kapoor under the Preservation of Trees Act, the official said, adding a probe was on.

Mumbai, Dec 15: Filmmaker Rahul Dholakia, who directed Mahira Khan in the 2017 film “Raees”, says Indians have “wronged” the Pakistani actress.

While Mahira was in Dubai for the Masala! Awards 2017, Mahira spoke to film news platform Bollywood Hungama, and said: “Whether it was Shah Rukh Khan or Rahul or Ritesh Batra or Farhan Akhtar, they all have been so amazing. At the end of the day, it’s about films, which is bigger than all of us combined. The film needed to be released. The film had to do well. They were all amazing. They still are.”

Dholakia found it “so sweet”.

He shared the link of her interview on Twitter on Friday, and commented: “Somewhere I feel we have wronged her. Our people forgot that she is an artist, not the enemy! We took away her right as an actor! Unfair. Mahira Khan you are wonderful and thank you for being a part of ‘Raees’.”

Mahira came to India last year to shoot for the film alongside Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan.

However, she was not allowed to attend the promotional events of the film in India after a ban was imposed by some groups on Pakistani artistes to work in India.
