Mumbai, Oct 19 (UNI) Leading Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan got a major relief when the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) said the terrace on his bungalow 'Mannat' was a bonafide construction and there was no violation of rules.
BMC commissioner Jairaj Phatak told reporters here today that the terrace was being built on the land owned by the actor.
Phatak said ''the terrace has been built on the building itself and had not encroached any piece of land.'' Shah Rukh's bungalow 'Mannat' at Bandstand in Bandra had become a landmark in the metropolis and hundreds of tourists throng the site daily to have a glimpse of Hindi cinema's highest paid actor.
Recently, there were allegations by some organisations of encroachment on the land by Shah Rukh.
It was alleged that the terrace of the bungalow had been built away from the boundary of land, owned by the actor, and extended till the road.
Phatak, who had visited the spot last week, said that the construction was clear of any encroachments.
The corporation has accepted an affidavit from Shah Rukh in the matter, said Additional Municipal Commissioner Manu Kumar Srivastav.
