Ever since the last 19 months, Imran Khan’s 24 Pali Hill residence has been under renovation.
The bungalow that belonged to the actor’s grandfather, filmmaker Nasir Hussain, was the venue of Imran’s wedding to his wife Avantika, back in January 2011. Now, word is that the renovations of the house will be more or less completed by Diwali and the couple will move in soon.
Our source says, “Imran has been staying with Avantika in a smaller flat in Bandra. The work is almost done. The noise coming from the renovation work is also slowing down. The family might move in soon.” Imran tells us, “The renovation is not yet complete. I hope to shift back by Diwali. But honestly, it’s in the hands of the workers!”
Incidentally, buzz was that Imran had wanted the bungalow to have a special viewing room with the latest technology available to watch films. However, after a whopping price tag of Rs 80 lakh was quoted for it, Imran had apparently found it way too steep. To know whether he finally went for it or not, we have to wait and watch…
