Mumbai, Feb 1 (IANS) Mumbai Police played party pooper at Bollywood actress Preity Zinta's birthday bash after slum-dwellers in the neighbourhood complained of loud music early Sunday morning.
A police patrol team 'called on' Zinta's flat in Quantum Park building in Bandra and ordered them to turn down the volume of the loudspeakers following complaints from other residents in the area, around 2 a.m., an official of Khar police station told IANS here.
The police official said that the actress will be penalised as per the provisions for flouting noise pollution rules.
A local resident, Irfan Shaikh, said that very loud music was played in the party which started late Saturday and continued till the early hours Sunday.
'Whenever there is music or programmes in the slum areas, these people in big buildings complain against us and we have to shell out large fines. We also get disturbed and so we complained to the police,' he told media persons here Sunday morning.
Shaikh claimed that initially the police did not respond to their calls for help. It was only after repeated pleas that they intervened, he said, adding that soon after the police left, the volume was again turned full blast.

I am probably..The only person in the world who feels
The recession..However difficult it may be..Is actually
Kind of a good thing..At least we are all..Somewhat equal now
I just hope..The duniyan learns from past mistakes
Aur improves for the sake of..us..For humanity n all
To be quite honest..No one is perfect in the world
Par celebs do make an effort..To set a good example
Especially people like..SRK n Preity
However they are normal people..& sometimes need to chill
It was her birthday bash..Itz bound to be loud
My sympathy is with all..The unfortunate people
Who reside in the slums..I only pray n hope for a
Better future for them..Wish the government listens.
However why does this seem..Like the complaint
Was made out of envy?..Just because she is a celeb
She should not..Get away with it?
I guess..If your all goody-two shoes..Then its all good
Par as soon as you want..Something for yourself
Your projected as being evil.
HYPOCRISY is the..True evil of this world
Everyone is so determinded..To prove their right
Par no one..Takes a moment to put themselves
In the other persons shoe.
As far as I''m concerned..If Preity is in the wrong
She will be honest about it..Unlike most people these days
I don''t understand..How this has anything to do with Danny
If we all really cared about poverty..It would not exist
We have to change ourselves..Before pointing fingers
No one is evil in this world..Its what they do.
Please let people have their space..Enjoy life
Regardless of their..Social status
Aur rather than moaning..Can we take a moment
To do something for our..So called duniyan
Lets stop looking down on people..Aur improve ourselves
To bring change..We must start from within..Peace
We INDIANS should be complaining about people like her
...and not directors like danny boyle. Sometimes people are such hypocrites: if danny boyle visits people living in slums and tries to understand their way of life and how they survive and shows it on film, then he is ''degrading'' our mumbai...but when ''stars'' such as preity damage the quality of life of the people living in slums, then the police are called party poopers?? Cheee.
Stars like shah rukh, preity etc only play good samaritans in front of cameras...but as soon as the cameras go away, they forget about their social responsibilities. may they rot in hell
