Bombay High Court on Thursday accepted the legitimacy of actress Prarveen Babi’s will after eleven years of her death.
According to the Will, eighty per cent of Parveen’s wealth should be used to form and run a trust, which will help underprivileged women and children from the Babi community of Junagadh, where she was born.
Twenty per cent of her property to be given to her maternal uncle Muradkhan Babi for his guidance and service, and the work he will undertake for the trust.
In 2005 the will was produced by her maternal uncle and it was probated last week after relatives from her father’s family dropped their claim that the document was fake.
Their decision ended the feud over an estate that includes a sea-facing, four bedroom flat in Juhu, a palace in Junagadh, jewellery, deposits of at least Rs 20 lakh in banks, and other investments.
