Ace Bollywood actress Rani Mukherjee will have to pay Rs 66 lakhs to the state government in order to regain ownership of the land that she had purchased (in 2005) near Shirdi in Maharashtra.
The court declared that no one has the right to own the land as it is belonged to Maharashtra state farming corporation, and was extended on a lease.
On March 27, the state govt. has formally taken over the 11,000 sq ft of land purchased by Rani in the name of her father Ram Mukherjee.
However, the actress was totally ignorant that it was farming area and could not be sold.
