Bollywood actor Hrithik Roshan's 42nd birthday bash allegedly cost Four Seasons Hotel in Worli Rs 25,000 in fines after locals complained of noise. The party was held at the AER Lounge on the 34th floor rooftop and attracted a large crowd of celebs besides some gate-crashers.
Hrithik Roshan Local resident Ashraf Khan – passing by at 1.30 am when the celebrations were reaching a crescendo – complained about the loud music and also the vehicles haphazardly parked outside creating a snarl at that unearthly hour.
Since it was already past the official deadline of 10 pm, police visited the hotel and imposed a fine of Rs 12,500, but the loud music continued. After repeated complaints by Mr Khan, the police again visited the hotel around 3.30 am and slapped a second fine of Rs 12,500 on the hotel manager.
That did the trick and the loud partying finally ended. When contacted by media on Wednesday, a hotel spokesperson refused to divulge details. “You ask the complainant how the sound reaches the ground from the 34th floor and the police about the fines,” the spokesperson said.
