Mumbai, Jan 07 (Agencies): Actor Sanjay Dutt on Friday moved the Bombay High Court appealing against its earlier order directing attachment of two of his properties in connection with a financial dispute with producer Shakeel Noorani.

On December 29, Dutt's Pali Hill residential flat was placed under attachment while a notice was pasted on his office premises at Mayfair building in suburban Santacruz.

Noorani has claimed Rs 2.03 crore back from the actor which includes Rs 50 lakh paid to Dutt as a signing amount for an under-production film 'Jaan Ki Baazi'. He alleged Dutt did not give dates for shooting, so the film remained incomplete causing loss of Rs 1.53 crore.

Noorani had approached Indian Motion Pictures Producers' Association for arbitration.

IMPPA passed order in Noorani's favour on January 28 last year and applied to High Court for execution of a decree following which the execution department of the high court directed attachment of the actor's properties.

"The IMPPA award is wrong in law. The executive committee of IMPPA is hand in gloves with Noorani," the actor's lawyer Rizwan Merchant said.

The appeal states that properties at Mayfair building cannot be attached as it is owned by his wife Manyata.
