Actor Amitabh Bachchan is preparing to demolish a sidewall of his Juhu bungalow 'Pratiksha'. BMC sent a notice to Amitabh Bachchan in 2017 itself for breaking this wall. But Bachchan is yet to respond to this notice. The BMC has directed the survey officers of the Mumbai Suburban Collectorate to mark the demolition portion of the wait. The wall of this bungalow is being demolished to widen Sant Dnyaneshwar Marg. The route starts from Pratiksha and leads to the ISKCON temple. This is the first bungalow bought by the Bachchan family in Juhu.
Apart from this, Amitabh has three more bungalows in the same area. His second bungalow, Jalsa, is located on the road from Vile Parle to JW Marriott, in which the entire Bachchan family lives. He also gives darshan to the fans from the balcony of this bungalow. His third bungalow Janak is also a few steps away from Jalsa which is used as an office. During the days of friendship with Amar Singh, he used to come and stay in Janak itself. His fourth bungalow Vats is also in the Juhu area, which has been given on rent to a bank.
Amitabh's father Harivansh Rai Bachchan and mother Teji Bachchan have spent a lot of time waiting. The width of Juhu's Sant Dnyaneshwar Marg is currently only 45 feet. BMC wants to increase its width to 60 feet so that it can get rid of the day-to-day jams here. Two bungalows are coming within the scope of widening this road. One waits for Amitabh Bachchan, the other industrialist, VK Satyamurthy's bungalow. Most of Satyamurthy's bungalow is coming under this purview. That's why he had moved the court after getting the BMC's notice.
