The BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) has filed a case against the actor Sonu Sood on Thursday for reportedly converting a six-storey residential building in Juhu into a hotel.

The BMC has filed the case under Maharashtra Region and Town Planning Act accusing the actor of increasing, altering the structure and switching the use of land without prior permission.

Reacting to the issue, Sonu said that he had already taken permission from BMC and is now waiting for approval for the same.

The complaint was filed on January 4 at Juhu police station, according to a report by Livehindustan.com. In the complaint, BMC stated that Sonu converted the Shakti Sagar Building into a hotel without any permission. The publication quoted the BMC as saying—“It has been found that Sonu Sood has made a change in the use of land by himself. Apart from this, the residential building has been converted into a residential hotel building by making additional construction out of the fixed plan. For this, they have not even obtained the necessary technical approval from the authority.”

Sonu Sood is known for his work in films like Dabangg, Simbaa and Jodhaa Akabar. During the coronavirus pandemic, he helped Indian migrant workers and students who were stranded around the country and outside by arranging buses, flights and trains for them to reach their respective homes.
