Hritik Roshan’s 42nd birthday bash allegedly cost Four Seasons Hotel in Worli Rs.25,000 in fines after locals complained of noise. The party on Saturday-Sunday (January (9-10) night was held at the AER Lounge on the 34th floor rooftop and attracted a large crowd of celebs besides some gate-crashers.
Local resident Ashraf Khan – passing by at 1.30 a.m. 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. (See Pics: SRK, Ranveer party with Hrithik on his birthday)
Since it was already past the official deadline of 10 p.m., police visited the hotel and imposed a fine of Rs.12,500, but the loud music continued.
After repeated complaints by Ashraf Khan, the police again visited the hotel around 3.30 a.m. and slapped a second fine of Rs.12,500 on the hotel manager. (Hrithik gifts himself a Rolls Royce)
That did the trick and the loud partying finally ended. When contacted by IANS 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.
