Bollywood star Vidya Balan has been diagnosed with dengue on Friday and has since been put under observation at home. Two of her neighbours, including actor Shahid Kapoor, were served notices by the BMC on Friday, for failing to prevent breeding of aedes aegypti mosquito inside their swanky apartments on Juhu Tara road.

The BMC's insecticide department, during a surveillance drive on Friday, found breeding inside Shahid's swimming pool that was apparently lying unused. Shahid lives two floors below Vidya's flat in the Praneta apartments. The notice has been served under section 382 of the BMC Act that attracts a fine of upto Rs 10,000. Another Balan's neighbour, who lives on the third floor, was also prosecuted under the same section for aedes breeding.
Over 1,500 patients were admitted with suspected dengue at various civic hospitals in just 11 days of September.
