The legal spat between renowned producer Ashwini Dutt and the state government levelled up as the start producer moved the High Court. Urging the High Court to intervene and stop expansion works of Gannavaram airport, Ashwini Dutt filed a petition seeking compensation for his land given to the government under land pooling.
Into details, the star producer reportedly had given over 40 acres of his land for the expansion of Gannavaram Airport upon the state government agreed to allot another land in the capital Amravati with the same value.
