Legendary actor Dilip Kumar and wife Saira Banu have sent a defamation notice to a builder named Sameer Bhojwani for falsely claiming ownership to their Rs 250 crore property that’s located in the suburbs of Bandra. They have sought for an apology from Mr Bhojwani and Rs 200 crore in damages for defaming them in public.

In January 2018, Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu had lodged a police complaint against Mr Bhojwani placing allegations against him on the grounds of forging title documents of their bungalow worth Rs 250 crore.

On December 21, 2018, Mr Bhojwani had issued a public notice by claiming that he was the “rightful owner” of the said property. Furthermore, he had stated that he was just a “lessee” of the property. So, Mr Kumar and his wife Saira Banu, taking objections to this, sent a defamation notice to Mr Bhojwani on December 31, 2018 for false and defamatory statements against them.


The notice sent to Bhojwani by the couple’s advocate Chirag Shah says, “Bhojwani has damaged the reputation of Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu in public by making false and defamatory statement against them. On the basis of forged and fabricated documents, Bhojwani is claiming ownership of a property, originally owned by Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu.”

The notice further states, “Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu are the legitimate owners of the property situated at Pali Hill in Bandra and have acquired the same in September 1953.” The notice maintained the chargesheet filed by the police in the case against Mr Bhojwani and it stated that he has claimed ownership of the said property by forging documents.

"Bhojwani issued the public notice on December 21, 2018 with a criminal intention to grab/encroach the legitimate rights of Dilip Kumar and Saira Banu by creating a perception in public that he (Bhojwani) is the owner of the property," it said.
