Buying a home in Mumbai is a dream for many, including Bollywood stars. One such actor’s dream is about to come true. Sidharth Malhotra is close to finalising a new pad in Bandra (W).
“I am in the midst of it right now. Hopefully, if the stars are in my favour, next year, I’ll have a new home. I looked at a lot of apartments. It takes a while (to zero in on a house), but I am excited to shift, set the house up and then throw a party (laughs),” says the 31-year-old.
Sidharth’s Ek Villain (2014) co-star Shraddha Kapoor has also got herself a new apartment close to her parents’ (Shakti and Shivangi Kapoor) home in Juhu. But the actor doesn’t have any plans to move out of her family home so far. She says the new house is meant for her meetings and work-related activities, so that she does not have to take over her parents’ space.
Sidharth and Shraddha aren’t alone. A number of other actors have shifted or are in the process of shifting homes. We take a look.
Sushant Singh Rajput
Moved: From Malad (W) to Bandra (W)
From a plush pad in Malad (W), Sushant has moved into a sea-facing 3BHK in Bandra (W). “It is a good place. It has ample space to watch films, read and hang out. Also, the view of the sea is beautiful,” he says.
Moved: Within Juhu
Varun will soon move into a four-and-a-half BHK in the same building, where his parents, David and Karuna Dhawan, reside. His pad is on the first floor. “Earlier, I was worried, thinking that yeh bahar chala jayega toh (if he leaves) we will always be worried. Now, we will be like, ‘Chalo neeche hi hai (it’s okay, he is on a floor below ours)’,” says David.
Moved: Within Juhu
In March this year, Alia bought a house, which is close to her parents’ home in Juhu. But due to her packed schedule, the 23-year-old hasn’t been able to shift yet. “Some finishing touches and interior decoration work is still on,” she says. Her sister, Shaheen, will also move in with her. She is likely to shift later this month.
Moved: From Andheri (W) to Bandra (W)
Earlier this year, Parineeti — who also has a house in Andheri (W) — moved into a 4BHK sea-facing apartment on Carter Road. “My new home is nice. I love the rains, so standing in the balcony and watching the rain makes me feel good (smiles),” says Parineeti.
Moved: From Andheri (W) to Juhu
Although Priyanka travels extensively between India and the US owing to her work, she has reportedly finalised a five-bedroom apartment in Juhu. This is the first time she will live alone, as her mother Madhu Chopra won’t be living with her.
Moved: Within Bandra (W)
Ranbir’s new sprawling abode is reportedly worth `35 crore. Apparently, the actor, who purchased a new property post breaking up with Katrina Kaif, will move into the house in October. Shah Rukh Khan’s wife Gauri Khan has been working on the interiors of his home.
