Ranbir Kapoor is currently one of the most demanded actors in the industry. The actor has proved his worth in the industry with movies like Wake Up Sid and Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. Ranbir's latest film Sanju has impressed the audience and the film is roaring on the box-office with a collection of more than Rs. 320 crore.
However, the prince charming of Bollywood, Ranbir, has landed himself in a legal trouble. Well, before you guess, it is not because of any of his films but because of an apartment he gave on lease in Pune.
The accuser, Sheetal Suryavanshi, moved into the 6,094 square-feet apartment located in Trump Towers in Pune’s Kalyani Nagar after renting it on leave and license basis. She has now been seeking damages and interest for being evicted much before the lock-in period stated in the agreement. As per discussion between them, the license fee to be paid was Rs 4 lakh per month for the first 12 months and Rs 4.20 lakhs for the next 12. Over and above Suryawanshi had to pay a deposit of Rs 24 lakh.
Now a case has been registered in Pune's civil court where Sheetal has sought damages to a number of Rs 50.40 lakh and interest of Rs 1.08 lakh since her family suffered 'severe inconvenience and hardships' due to the sudden eviction
"In said notice (email), it was falsely informed by the defendant (Ranbir) that he wants to shift into the said premises, and for this reason, plaintiff (Suryawanshi) was asked to vacate the premises in contravention of the terms and conditions of the leave and license agreement," the suit stated to a leading daily.
According to the actor, Suryawanshi was not asked to vacate the flat because he was moving in. The clause in the agreement states that the lock-in period would be of 12 months and that the licensee cannot terminate it before said period. As per a report in Mumbai Mirror, Ranbir’s response stated, "Plaintiff cannot unilaterally change, modify or interpret leave and license agreement to suit her convenience."
The case hearing is scheduled for August 28.
Ranbir Kapoor will be seen next in Bramhastra opposite Alia Bhatt and Mouni Roy. Bramhastra will be a three-film trilogy by Ayan Mukherjee.
