MNS leader Manish Dhuri told the publication, "In 2017, BMC had sent notices to Amitabh Bachchan and other societies for road widening. Everyone cooperated but Bachchan. We are waiting outside Prateeksha hoping to get a response from Big B. If BMC does not take any action and Bachchan does not respond, we will carry out huge protests against BMC".

As per reports, Amitabh Bachchan and others including Rajkumar Hirani, Oberoi Realty, Pankaj Balaji, Sanjay Vyas were served notices for "illegal construction". BMC officials have reportedly said that they have planned to break the wall of Prateeksha to widen the road and ease traffic. The matter is currently in court.
