Singer Lata Mangeshkar Saturday moved the Bombay High Court challenging a state government order that declared a film studio built on her Kolhapur plot as a heritage structure.
A division bench of Justice A S Oka and Justice S C Gupte, which heard her petition, has directed the government to file a reply and also issued a notice to Kolhapur Municipal Corporation, returnable on February 7.
As per her contentions, neither the state government nor the civic body had given a notice before declaring Jayprabha Studio as a heritage structure, as required under Section 37(1) of Maharashtra Regional Town Planning (MRTP) Act.
Mangeshkar had bought the 13-acre plot in 1959 from renowned Marathi filmmaker Bhalji Pendharkar to build a film studio on it.
The singer contended that because the studio had got a heritage tag, it could not be renovated.
