Member of Pali Hill Residents’ Association files RTI application seeking details of Rishi Kapoor's bungalow expansion plan
Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor's plan to reconstruct his iconic Krishna Raj bungalow in Pali Hill has been stuck for over four years now as the civic authorities are yet to give a go-ahead to such a large-scale renovation process.
Now a member of the Pali Hill Residents' Association, which has been objecting to his proposal for an office space and preview theatre on the property, has sought details of the plan through an RTI application.
The affluent Kapoors, Rishi, Neetu and Ranbir, reside at Krishna Kunj in Pali Hill, Bandra
A source says, "The Kapoors want to convert the bungalow into a 15-storey building with a swimming pool, office and a preview theatre, but it looks difficult. The association tried to find out his plan, but he never reverted to the query."
Madhu Poplai, secretary of the association, confirms the buzz about the RTI application. "Information about the plans for Krishna Raj has been sought as there were reports of the bungalow being renovated. The association has never objected to any construction in the vicinity, but we have been opposing the plan for a preview theatre and office space. Pali Hill is a residential area and we want to maintain that," she adds.
Rishi Kapoor remained unavailable for comment.
