TV actor Kushal Tandon, who owns a restaurant named Arbour 28 in Mumbai, in a recent interview with Etimes, opened up about the losses his business incurred due to the heavy Mumbai rain. When asked about the damage to the property, the actor said, "Difficult to say but somewhere in the vicinity of Rs 20-25 lakh approximately." Maharashtra is witnessing the heaviest rain in July in 40 years. The regions of Sangli and Amravati are facing a flood-like situation, while Ratnagiri, Raigad, Kolhapur districts are flooded. Other than that, four landslides have been reported in Raigad due to excessive rain in the region.
The actor had launched the restaurant in 2019 and its grand opening was a star-studded affair with stars like Hardik Pandya, Sohail Khan, Sidharth Shukla, Karanvir Bohra, Iulia Vantur, Alvira Khan, Krystle D'Souza and Nia Sharma in attendance.
The actor added that besides the heavy rain, the pandemic can also be attributed as a cause of the not-so-flourishing business. "After Covid, business hasn't been too great. Moreover, twice it was shut down due to the lockdown. Abhi bhi bandh hi tha kyunki the time limit of opening is 4 pm and business is more so after 16:00 hours," said Kushal Tandon.
The Beyhadh actor added that the road ahead will not be easy. He told ETimes, "It was made with lots of love. I had called people from France to get a special cloth material to do it. It's a 6,000 sq feet place. So of course it won't be easy. But I am not going to wait. I'll get it rectified soonest."
Kushal Tandon is a familiar face from the TV soaps Ek Hazaaron Mein Meri Behena Hai and Beyhadh. He also contested on Season 7 of reality show Bigg Boss. He has also been a part of several music videos. He has also participated in reality shows such as Nach Baliye 5 and Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi 5.
