While surviving in Bollywood is no easy task, looks like some people simply don’t waste an opportunity to make the most off celebrities. The latest victim seems to be Kangna Ranaut, who apparently found herself on a rather sticky real estate ground.
The actress, who purchased a sprawling apartment in a building in Khar (west) in March, has apparently been asked to pay a whopping fee of Rs 2 crore to get the flat transferred on her name. A source close to the actress says, “The seller had bought the flats from the builder and now the latter is demanding around Rs 2 crore as transfer fee. It is absolutely illegal, unwarranted and nothing short of extortion.”
Kangs’ lawyer Rizwan Siddiquee apparently first contacted the builder on May 6 but the builder is yet to get back to the aggrieved party. Says the advocate, “There is a dispute since the last two months and the builder has refused to transfer the said property till they receive the amount. I believe that the matter can be amicably resolved. In case if no consensus is arrived by the end of this week, then I have instructions from my clients to proceed legally to safeguard their legitimate rights and interest.”
