You might still be sending New Year wishes, but the Khans — Salman and Shah Rukh — have already planned special Valentine’s Day gifts for their darlings — Katrina Kaif and Gauri Khan.
While sources say that Shah Rukh plans to dedicate his next release, his home production Billoo Barber, to wife Gauri, Salman has gone one step further — we hear he is buying Katrina a huge apartment in Mumbai’s star-studded neighbourhood of Bandra, to be decorated by Hrithik Roshan’s wife Suzanne.
According to our sources, Sallu and Kat are in a particularly rosy phase of their affair — Katrina has been visiting Salman on the sets of London Dreams and Veer; and recently, when Salman drove an autorickshaw in Mumbai, a concerned Katrina followed him in his car. Now the boyfriend wants to show his love in kind.
According to the property dealer, “the deal is almost finalised. After an intensive recce, Salman picked this flat. And he wants it ready by February 14.” Besides the location, the architecture of the building appealed to Salman, says the dealer. “He is in talks with Suzanne to do the interiors. Salman wants the place to have a mix of Indian and European feel,” says our source.
One of Suzanne’s assistants confirms the news. “We’ve been asked to study the interior plans of a flat in Bandra. It’s a four-BHK apartment with two balconies,” Francina says. “The living room will have a fireplace, with portrait space on the wall. Salman is keen to have an all-white décor for the living room, while the kitchen will have vibrant shades,” she adds.
The dealer reveals that Salman wants to make a fresh portrait of Katrina and display it on the main wall of the living area. Earlier, he had done a painting of her look in last year’s release, Yuvvraaj. Salman himself remained unavailable for comments.
