After Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) accused Kapil Sharma of having illegal extensions to his Versova office, the comedian has now moved the Bombay High Court against the civic body's order to demolish the 'illegal portion.'
The entire ruckus started after Kapil, known for The Kapil Sharma Show, took to Twitter and alleged that BMC officials had asked him for a bribe of Rs 5 lakh. He had tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the tweet as well.
While the tweet garnered widespread reaction, BMC alleged that Kapil's Versova office had an illegal extension and ordered for its demolition. However, the comedian has now moved the high court challenging the BMC's order.
The case will be heard by Justice Ranjit More and Justice Anuja Prabhudesai. Meanwhile, the hearing of the case has been deferred till November 23.
Kapil is currently one of the most popular TV stars. He achieved fame with the success of Comedy Nights with Kapil, which however, went off-air some months back. Now, Kapil is gaining popularity with The Kapil Sharma Show that is aired on Sony Entertainment Television.
