The Dirty Picture actress Vidya Balan has been slammed with dengue on Friday and ever since her doctors are only concentrating on three things: Dengue, Dengue and Dengue! But the blame is not only on Vidya Balan but also on her neighbours, including actor and reported ex Shahid Kapoor, who was served notices by the BMC on Friday. They were charged for failing to prevent the breeding of female mosquitoes: aedes aegypti inside their fancy apartments on Juhu Tara road.
As soon as the news of Balan being kissed by aedes aegypti broke, BMC officials decided to pay a visit to not just Balan's apartment but also her neighbours. During the checking, officials did not find any party spots of aedes mosquito, in Balan's residence but found more than a couple of spots in her neighbour's residence. During the surveillance drive on Friday, officials found breeding inside Shahid's swimming pool, who stays just two floors below Vidya's flat in the Praneta apartments that was apparently lying unused. Another of Balan and Shahid's neighbour, who lives on the third floor, was also prosecuted under the same section for storing up stagnant water that leads to the breeding of mosquitoes. The notice has been served under section 382 of the BMC Act that attracts a fine of upto Rs 10,000.
Over 1,500 patients were admitted with suspected dengue at various civic hospitals in just 15 days of September! We wish you a speedy recovery Vidya :)
