Bollywood actress-producer Anushka Sharma has been given a clean chit by the BMC, who sent her a notice on April 6 for installation of an electric junction box in the common passage area of her building allegedly without taking permission from the civic body. The civic body issued the notice to Anushka Sharma based on a complaint by a resident of the housing society.

The BMC now in a letter to resident Sunil Batra, the complainant stated that after investigations, civic body officials discovered that the electric junction box is fixed in the common passage, which is owned by Anushka Sharma's father. According to The Times of India, Batra claims this is preferential treatment doled out to Sharma, who is a famous personality, after BMC's decision that there is no wrongdoing on the actress' part.

BMC's earlier notice, based on Batra's complaint, directed Sharma to remove the electric junction box from the common passage area immediately, failing which necessary action will be initiated. Anushka Sharma, residing on the 20th floor of Badrinath Tower housing society in suburban Versova, however, denied any wrongdoing.

Denying the allegation, a spokesperson of the actress said "There is nothing illegal about any construction or installation."

"The actress owns three flats on the 20th floor and all the permissions since 2013 are in place. Anushka and her family are law abiding and responsible citizens and wouldn't do anything to cause inconvenience or harm to anyone," the spokesperson said in a statement.
