Bollywood actor-politician Sunny Deol's villa in Juhu, Mumbai, is all set to be auctioned in September 2023 for non-payment of dues amounting to nearly Rs 56 crore. The actor is currently enjoying the success of Gadar 2 which has collected Rs 336 crore within nine days of its theatrical release.
According to a notice published by Bank Of Baroda in The Free Press Journal, the villa will be e-auctioned on September 25 due to non-payment of Rs 55,99,80,766.
The notice also mentions that Sunny Deol, whose real name is Ajay Singh, is the borrower and guarantor and that he has failed to pay the above mentioned figure to the bank on time.
The villa, located at Gandhigram Road in Juhu, houses Sunny Super Sound, which is a post-production studio. Several Bollywood celebrities are often spotted outside the studio. A lot of films are also screened here.
According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, after paying the amount at auction, the buyer will only get the symbolic possession of the property. Also, Sunny Deol can operate his business from Sunny Villa until the District Magistrate approves to give the physical possession to the buyer.
