The Bombay High Court on Wednesday disposed off a PIL challenging construction by Shah Rukh Khan on plot adjacent to his bungalow 'Mannat' as well as certain add-on construction at the bungalow itself.
The court passed the order after being satisfied that no heritage laws and other municipal regulations were being violated.
Khan's bungalow at suburban Bandra, close to sea-shore, is an old building declared as heritage building.
The actor bought the bungalow and vacant plot adjacent to it some years back.
A PIL filed in the Bombay High Court had challenged the construction on this plot on the ground that the plot was reserved for an art gallery.
Also, some structural changes at Mannat itself too were challenged, on the ground that it was a heritage.
Shah Rukh's lawyers also submitted that some additions to the bungalow which were violating heritage laws were removed.
As regards reservation of adjacent plot, Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) lawyers stated that reservation on plot for art gallery was lifted later.
