Bank of Baroda plans e-auction of Sunny Deol’s bungalow for ₹56 crore loan recovery but withdraws notice amid reports. Loan default and success in the film industry draw attention mid reports.
The state-owned Bank of Baroda (BoB) had initiated proceedings to auction a property belonging to a prominent actor in order to recover a loan of ₹56 crore. The e-auction, scheduled for August 25, was intended to address the actor’s default on a loan of ₹55.99 crore, along with accumulated interest and penalties, dating back to December 2022. This development emerged as the Gurdaspur Member of Parliament achieved significant success with his recent movie “Gadar 2,” which has already amassed an impressive ₹370 crore in box office earnings within its first week of release.
In light of the loan default, BoB had listed the actor’s bungalow for auction to retrieve the outstanding amount. However, reports have emerged stating that the auction notice for the property has been withdrawn. This turn of events suggests a potential reconsideration of the decision, though the exact reasons for the withdrawal have not been specified.
The actor’s financial discrepancy had attracted attention due to the substantial sum involved and the bank’s intent to address it through a public auction. The move underscores the bank’s efforts to recover delinquent loans and mitigate potential losses. The decision to withdraw the auction notice may be influenced by a variety of factors, including legal or procedural considerations, negotiation with the borrower, or broader public sentiment.
Additionally, the actor’s success in the film industry juxtaposed with the loan default raises questions about financial management practices and the complexities of maintaining a balance between personal finances and professional accomplishments. The episode also highlights the role of financial institutions in recovering unpaid loans and their various approaches to handling such situations.
As news of the auction withdrawal surfaced, there were also reactions from various quarters, including political and business leaders. Y Sathish Reddy, leader of BRS and chairman of the Telangana State Renewable Energy Development Corporation (TSREDCO), expressed his thoughts on the bank’s actions, adding a layer of public discourse to the matter.
