Citizen groups in Bandra and Khar have launched an agitation to revoke the naming of a road after actor Chunky Pandey’s late father Dr Sharad Pandey.
The Pandeys have had frequent arguments with the residents over various matters in the past.
Chunky’s pub Elbo Room in Khar (West) had run into a controversy with citizens protesting against it, alleging irregularities.
Then recently, Chunky’s sister-in-law Deanne Pandey’s fitness centre ran into trouble with residents, after a financial dispute.
Aftab Siddiqui, chairperson, 33rd Road Advanced Locality Management (ALM), said: “We are enlisting the support of citizen groups throughout between Bandra and Khar who feel that the Pandeys don’t deserve to have a road named after their late father.”
The residents had allegedly defaced the sign marking the junction at St Andrew and St Dominic roads in Bandra named after Dr Pandey.
