A police complaint against actor Sonu Sood was filed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for allegedly converting a six-story residential building in Juhu into a hotel without permission from BMC.
However, the actor denied the charges, stating that he had the requisite permits and was awaiting approval from the Maharashtra Coastal Zone Management Authority (MCZMA). BMC's complaint read, Sonu Sood has been found to have instituted/begun/undertaken/carried out development or modified land users. Unauthorized additions/alterations outside the approved design and unauthorised user transfer from residential to residential hotel building without the technical penalty of the qualified authority.
According to the complaint, Sonu had not complied with the notice and was continuing to carry out the 'unauthorised production even after the notice had been served on him.'
