HT City - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Dilip Ku­mar’s (right) an­ces­tral home in Pe­shawar, Pak­istan has col­lapsed. Au­thor­i­ties say that his house, de­clared as na­tional her­itage in 2014 by the ar­chae­ol­ogy depart­ment, was in sham­bles and ac­cord­ing to en­gi­neers, couldn’t be con­served. Au­thor­i­ties say a replica will come up soon un­der the K-P An­tiq­ui­ties Act 2016, which al­lows the ar­chae­ol­ogy depart­ment to carry on con­ser­va­tion or re­con­struc­tion work at any an­cient site with­out own­er­ship.
