Vidya Balan is back in Mumbai after completing an outdoor schedule for ‘Kahaani 2’. However, back in the city, the celebrity actress is diagnosed with dengue. The doctors have suggested Vidya Balan to rest for the next 10-15 days, till the time dengue comes under control. Reports state that Vidya Balan’s neighbours, one of which is Shahid Kapoor, have been served a notice by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). The notice is slapped to Shahid Kapoor and others for not taking preventive measures to curb the breeding of mosquitos in their lavish apartments. Petri dish kept for plants at a fourth floor apartment, a tarpaulin on the terrace and cinema star Shahid Kapoor’s unused swimming pool were said to be the breeding zones for the dengue mosquitoes. Apparently, the BMC stated that the rain water accumulation creates favourable conditions for the mosquitoes to breed. Dengue stricken Vidya Balan and newly turned father Shahid Kapoor own flats in the building named Pranita on Juhu Tara Road in Mumbai.
