Actor Aamir Khan’s wish to build a bungalow in the upmarket area of Pali Hill, has apparently led an octogenarian woman and her daughter to sell their flats in Virgo Co-operative Housing Society . Pamela de Sa owns two flats in Marina, and Geneve de Sa owns two garages in Bella Vista. Aamir Khan who owns a flat in Marina and in Belle Vista had expressed a desire to own the plot.
The two ladies have have alleged that the managing committee of their housing society on Pali Hill are pressuring owners to sell 60 per cent of the premises to the actor . The ladies Dr Pamela de Sa, 87, and her daughter, Dr Geneve de Sa, 50, complained to the deputy registrar of co-operative societies that the society managing committee has been pushing Khan’s proposal, which they said was a “falsely conceived redevelopment scheme”.
According to sources, De Sas wrote to the deputy registrar on March 11 that .”The Managing Committee is favouring the acceptance of a proposal from Aamir Khan who is trying to purchase 60 per cent of the flats for his own residence by forcibly dis-housing the existing members of the society and compelling them to search new premises,”
Sources further added that “Aamir Khan has indeed sent an offer to his society after the society requested him to make an offer. We assume that the society will assess all offers received, and members will then decide on how to proceed, which is the normal process. Khan has offered to buy 20,000 sq ft of the 36,207 sq ft (3,364 sq m) property at the rate of Rs 70,000 per sq ft of carpet area from society members interested in selling their flats or garages to him. A certain minimum number of members should be willing to sell their premises outright, so that Khan has at least 20,000 sq ft of carpet area for himself. For members not interested in selling, Khan has offered to build a separate building on the rest of the plot.
Aamir Khan wanted to buy 60% of the property to build a bungalow for himself.
