When she was 18, long before her Bollywood debut, Kangana Ranaut ran into a man who was doing gymnastics at Juhu Beach. Impressed, she asked the man, Surya Narayan Singh, to teach her how to do what he was doing. Since then, the actor has been learning yoga from Singh.

Now, HT has learnt that the actor has gifted her two-bedroom apartment in Andheri (W) to Singh in a bid to help him start a yoga centre. “The apartment has a spacious balcony, where the yoga classes will be conducted,” says an insider.

Apparently, Kangana’s apartment is worth more than Rs 2 crore. “It’s a kind gesture from Kangana, but she feels it’s her ‘guru dakshina’ to Singh, who has been a pillar of strength in her life right from the start. He has never asked her for anything like that, but the actor felt that she should do something for him,” the insider says.

Kangana isn’t just gifting Singh the posh apartment. The actor is apparently also helping him refurbish the place so it looks like “a nice yoga centre”. “In fact, Kangana visited the apartment a few days ago to instruct the contractor how to design and redo the house,” the insider says.

The actor is ensuring the proposed centre will have everything that is needed, from personal lockers to health amenities. “Since she will be recommending the yoga centre to everyone, the actor wants everything to be of high quality. She has always been sensitive to people around her,” says the insider.
