Five members of a cooperative housing society in Mumbai’s posh Bandra suburb, including two senior citizens, have voted against actor Aamir Khan buying 20,000 sq ft area to build a bungalow for himself. The two senior citizens are mother-daughter duo, 87-year-old Pamela D’sa and Dr Geneve D’sa.

The duo, who resides in Virgo Society in Bandra’s Pali Hill, has filed a complaint with deputy registrar of cooperative societies claiming, “Aamir Khan should've followed the right procedure and not the manner in which he is trying to take over the place. This redevelopment issue has affected my health tremendously,” claimed Pamela.

Geneve, who is a practising gynecologist, alleges that managing committee of the society is favouring Aamir.
 She said, “When there was a meeting of the society in December for redevelopment there was no mention of Aamir Khan at all. Next we get a circular from the society along with a letter from Aamir Khan with same (offer) that had been made in 2011.”

Dr Geneve questions the managing committee saying, “When the same proposal was voted out the first time, why did they entertain the actor again.”

Aamir Khan clarifies

On Thursday, the actor’s spokesperson clarified, "Mr Khan strongly denies any allegations of pressure tactics or misconduct on his part, and takes strong exception to attempts being made to defame him."

The spokesperson said, "The fact of the matter is that Mr Khan left the building more than a year ago, after an incident of a slab of concrete falling on the head of one of the members, resulting in the member being hospitalized.”

"Thereafter, over the months, in his absence, the society had several meetings and discussions, regarding redevelopment. The general body eventually passed a resolution with 80 percent majority members voting in favour of redevelopment. Thereafter, society made a request in writing to Mr Khan to make an offer. Mr Khan gave the matter due thought and made an offer. In his offer letter, he also suggested the society to invite other offers to ensure best value for the society and its members.
