Says a source, "The said property is in a legal dispute. Also, two of the three current owners of the house are unwilling to sell the house and are in no mood to co-operate with the star’s family and his lawyers. In spite of several meetings the matter hasn’t progressed."
Adds the source, "Aamir is said to be still keen on owning the house and has said to have even approached the local residents to intervene in the deal and help him buy the house."
Reportedly, in 2009 the actor had gone to Benares for the promotions of his film '3 Idiots' (2009) and then for the wedding of an autodriver's son he had befriended while he was there. Aamir considers the holy city to be beautiful and historic.
Aamir Khan's spokesperson remained unavailable for comment.
