Modi was in Mumbai Tuesday for a day and met producers and actors to discuss issues related to the Hindi film industry.
Mumbai: Veteran actor Saira Banu has reached out to Prime Minister Narendra Modi, begging him for help in tackling the “land mafia” and protecting her husband and Bollywood legend Dilip Kumar’s house.
The Mumbai police said Wednesday that the Economic Offences Wing (EOW) has expedited its probe against a builder accused of trying to grab a bungalow of actor Dilip Kumar and his wife Saira Banu. A case has been registered against builder Sameer Bhojwani at the suburban Khar police station on Saira Banu's complaint, an official said.
Tweeting from Kumar’s official account, she said that the PM was her last hope in the case because repeated entreaties to Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis had been futile. She named bui-lder Samir Bhojwani, who had allegedly falsely clai-med ownership of two plots at Pali Hill where Kumar’s bungalow was built. “To the honourable @PMOIndia @narendramodi. Awaiting appointment. I'm tired of repeated assurances from CM @Dev_Fadnavis ‘I Am Trying’. Sir you are the last hope for protecting Dilip Sahab's only house from the land mafia Samir Bhojwani. I beg (sic).”
