This is something that usually happens only in a Bollywood film. But, this time round, it's happening in real life and how. Ironically, the people involved in this are the B-town residents. We are talking about the family of legendary late Kamaal Amrohi, which is in news due to their property dispute that's worth over a staggering Rs.600 crore!
Shandar, one of Kamaal Amrohi's three children, has now filed a case against his sister Rukhsar and brother Wasim stating that they have falsely pledged his shares in 'Mahal Pictures Pvt Ltd' (that owns the famous Kamaal Amrohi studio), to a company in Pune. As he was struggling his way through the cops to file a complaint, entered preity zinta, his 'adopted' daughter (who, of late has been tweeting about how difficult it is to file an FIR these days), who offered to shoulder his cause ahead.
For starters, Shandar always took preity zinta as his daughter ever since he saw her films. No wonder then, he had announced that he would pass on all his property to Preity. Shandar, on his part, opined that he is battling not for money but for justice and that Preity is helping him fight it, despite strong opposition from the other family members.
Even as we publish this news, we just got the update that the High Court has adjourned further hearing on Shandar's plea till March 11. Watch this space for further updates.
