Late Actor Nirupa Roy's Sons Fight Over Her Property
Property dispute between the two sons of late Nirupa Roy, the quintessential Bollywood mother of the 1970s, led to a brawl between the duo, the police said on January 10.
Forty-five-year-old Kiran called the police late on Monday night to complain about noise made by his elder brother Yogesh's children, a senior police official said. Then the altercation followed between Kiran and his brother over their mother's Malabar Hill property.
The argument resulted in a "small fight" between the brothers. However, no offence has been registered.
Kiran alleged that Yogesh barged into the section of the apartment which housed his (Kiran's) family and started smashing window panes and hurling abuses, the police said. There had been a bitter dispute between the two brothers over Roy's flat at the Embassy Apartments for a long time, the police said.
The actress had bought the flat for less than Rs 10 lakh in 1963. The brothers occupy two bedrooms each in the apartment, which is spread over 3,000 sqft, and comes attached with an 8,000 sqft garden.
After Roy's death in 2004, her husband Kamal Roy became the sole owner of the property. The dispute between the brothers worsened after his death in November 2015, the police said.
Roy acted in over 200 films, and was famous for her portrayal of the mother of Amitabh Bachchan and late Shashi Kapoor in classic hit Deewaar.
