While the rest of Bollywood folk seem to be real estate savvy, looks like Katrina Kaif prefers to make her investments elsewhere.
Those close to the actress say that even though she has been house hunting since the last four years, she is yet to take a call on a pad that she can call her own. Kat has been around in Bollywood for almost a decade now.
Insiders say that perhaps it’s Katrina’s indecisiveness that could be blamed for why she still lives in a rented apartment in Bandra. Her peers like Deepika Padukone and Priyanka Chopra are proud owners of plush pads in Mumbai.
A source says, “She was allegedly keen on leasing out a Carter Road duplex belonging to a National Award-winning filmmaker but backed out after showing initial interest. She was said to have fallen in love with the place for its alluring view of the sea. But after a while, she simply changed her mind.”
The 30-year-old British citizen reportedly owns properties in her hometown London. “This habit seems to be irking those who have been helping her find her dream home.” Apparently once in the recent past, her superstition came in the way of almost signing a deal.
“We went to check out a property recently. Just as we were about to leave the elevator, she got an SMS informing her of the death of a celebrated actor. She immediately dropped the plan and left the place saying it was an inauspicious start to the day,” states another source.
Confirming that Katrina is still looking to purchase a house, the actress’ spokesperson adds, “She has been very busy lately with her shoot schedules. That is one of the reasons why she has not been able to make up her mind yet.”
