Legendary Bollywood actor Raj Kapoor Haveli was saved from demolition. The current owners of the Haveli wanted to demonstrate the mansion and construct a commercial plaza in view of its location. The archaeological department has stopped it and moved the court to preserve the mansion in view of its historic importance.
Kapoor’s Haveli is situated in Peshawar’s famous Qissa Khwani Bazaar, which was built between 1918 and 1922 by Raj Kapoor grand father Deqan Bashewarnath Kapoor. Raj Kapoor was born in that mansion. The new owner said that his family bought the property during an action in 1969. They also claim that there is no sort of paper to relate the property to the Raj Kapoor family. However, the court has asked to stop the demolition.
