Mishal Raheja, the protagonist of Love Story and PyarVyar And All That projects a rare intensity onscreen. The good-looking actor tells us about his plush sea-facing house in Mumbai’s poshest locality.
“I stay in the town, away from the studios of Mumbai,” says Raheja, who lives with his parents on the eleventh floor of Mona Apartments. “We have been living here for the past 12 years. We instantly fell in love with this place because of the huge hall. The house emanates positive energy as the closer you are to natural bodies, the more positive are the vibes.
Raheja’s house overlooks the vast expanse of Arabian Sea. “When I’m feeling down and out, I gaze out at the sea from the window and my mood is elevated within minutes,” he says. A special reason why his house is imbued with a warm, cosy and positive ambience, says Raheja. is the fact that “one can get a clear view of both Mahalaxmi Temple and Haji Ali Dargah from my house.”
“My house has been designed jointly by my parents, with little inputs from me and my sister,” he says. The hall, divided into three different sections, accommodates a western-style sitting, an Indian sitting with gaddas and a third one with a sofa set and a TV.
It does not boast of many artifacts. However, “I have a habit of picking up idols and photographs. Recently, I went to Vaishnodevi Temple and picked up luminous photos of Mataji and Shivji” says Raheja.
My favourite corner is my bedroom because it is at the extreme end of the house. I can listen to loud music and let my TV blare at a very high volume without disturbing anyone. The room has a blue hue, which has been left untouched ever since we moved in. I guess it was painted blue because of the popular notion that blue is for guys and pink for girls.
