Friday, March 21, 2014 • Hindi Comments

Of late news had been abuzz that Aamir Khan had allegedly been instrumental in pressurizing his residential society in Pali Hill, Mumbai’s elite hub, to sell a part of their property so that he can build a bungalow in the acquired lands. The issue was brought up by a mother and daughter duo - 87 year old Dr Pamela de Sa, and her 50-year old daughter, Dr Geneve de Sa. They complained to the deputy registrar of co-operative societies citing that they were misled by the managing committee who alleged that Aamir was stressing on such proposal in the name of "redevelopment scheme". However, the actor slammed such allegations as false and through his spokesperson strongly refuted the rumours and clarified on the matter.

The statement from Aamir’s spokesperson read thus: "We would like to clarify on behalf of our client, Mr. Aamir Khan, that he denies all allegations regarding him putting any pressure on his society to go in for redevelopment. The fact of the matter is that Mr. Khan left the building more than a year ago, after an incident of a slab of concrete falling on the head of one of the members, resulting in the member being hospitalized.

Thereafter, over the months, in his absence, the society had several meetings and discussions, regarding redevelopment. The general body eventually passed a resolution with 80% majority members voting in favour of redevelopment. Thereafter, society made a request in writing to Mr. Khan to make an offer. Mr. Khan gave the matter due thought and made an offer. In his offer letter, he also suggested to the society to invite other offers to ensure best value for the society and it's members.

Mr. Khan strongly denies any allegations of pressure tactics or misconduct on his part, and takes strong exception to attempts being made to defame him."
