Alia Bhatt is now a proud home owner. A couple of months ago, Alia bought herself a new house in Mumbai and she was very clear about she didn’t want the house to have a modern feel to it.
After delivering three back-to-back hits this year “Kapoor & Sons, “Udta Punjab”, and “Dear Zindagi” — she has now moved out of the Bhatt residence and has shifted to her apartment along with her sister Shaheen Bhatt.
The actor bought her pad in June last year and it is located strategically. It is not too far from her parents’ home and yet gives both the Bhatt girls to have their own space.
The house has been designed by filmmaker Vikas Bahl’s wife Richa. Vikas directed Alia in “Shaandaar”, which failed to set the box office on fire last year. Sharing a picture of her new house, Alia wrote on Instagram, “And finally night number 1 at the new home @shaheenb (we did it)”.
The three-bedroom apartment has the feel of a New York loft. Young and vibrant, the house has everything that you expect from the abode of Alia’s.
Speaking about the idea of her own house, Alia had said earlier in an interview, “It’s all very new and unexplored for me. All my life, I’ve lived with my parents. Now I need my own place. I made sure I got a place very close to my parents’ home. You step out of my old home and you step into the new home.” The one who was not too sold on the idea of Alia and Shaheen living in a different house was dad Mahesh. “He was like. ‘Why do you have to move out? Why do you need your own place when you’ve all the privacy that you need right here in this house?’ When I tried to convince him that I had to find my own place he insisted that there must be a room for him in my new home. I’ve tried to explain to him that I am just a breath away. But he is unconvinced. I guess dads will be dads,” Alia told the national daily in the interview.
