Lata Mangeshkar moves HC against Maharashtra government

Mumbai, Dec 22 : Legendary singer Lata Mangeshkar has moved the Bombay High Court challenging Maharashtra government's order that declared a film studio built on her Kolhapur plot as a heritage structure.

Following her petition on Saturday, a division bench of Justice A S Oka and Justice S C Gupte has directed the government to file a reply and also issued a notice to Kolhapur Municipal Corporation, returnable on Feb 7.

Mangeshkar has contended that neither the state government nor the civic body had given a notice before declaring Jayprabha Studio as a heritage structure, which is required under Section 37(1) of Maharashtra Regional Town Planning (MRTP) Act.

The singer had bought the 13-acre plot in 1959 from renowned Marathi filmmaker Bhalji Pendharkar in order to build a film studio on it.

The singer contended that because the studio did not get a heritage tag, it could not be renovated.
