Picture this: Bipasha Basu and Katrina Kaif braving the rain and the sun, clutching bottles of mineral water, hopping in and out of cabs, following a broker,desperate to find an apartment. While the reality, we suspect, involves more comfortable transport and a few other people to whom most of the duties have been delegated, the leading ladies of Bollywood are indeed desperately house hunting.
While Bipasha is looking for a new apartment in Mumbai , Katrina is trying to find a new house for her family in London. And so far, both of them have had little luck. “I’ve been looking for a place for the last one year. And I can assure you that there are hundreds of people looking for me, but without any luck,” says Bipasha, laughing. The actor recently transformed her 4BHK (four bedroom hall kitchen) apartment in Khar to a spacious 1BHK. So, why a bigger place, we wonder. “I’ve worked very hard — almost every day — since I was 16. Now I want certain comforts — a pool to soak in, and an open kitchen to entertain my friends with amazing meals. I feel trapped in a closed kitchen, with my friends enjoying outside,” she says.
Similarly, Katrina, while shooting for Yash Chopra’s untitled next in London, went hunting for a place for her five sisters and mother, who are settled in the British capital. “Since my mother is (in London), she was interested in checking out some houses. But I haven’t found anything yet,” says Katrina. Once she is free from her acting assignments, she intends to look at more places. “It’s going to take a while. When I have more time, I will look into it.”
