Controversies • In 2016, it was reported that Arjun handed over a bill of INR 1 lakh to his producers after partying and consuming alcohol every night while shooting for Mohit Suri’s ‘Half Girlfriend.’
• In early 2017, the BMC sent a notice to Arjun after he encroached on the terrace of his building by constructing a 30×16 sq ft brick and glass room without permission. Arjun’s manager met the ward officer and asked for more time to regularize the irregularities, but when no further time was given, the BMC issued a notice asking Arjun to demolish the structure. Later, the civic body officials dismantled his gym equipment and demolished the illegal addition at Arjun’s residence.
