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. And now
it’s finally happened! Alia has moved out of the Bhatt residence and has shifted to her apartment along
with her sister Shaheen Bhatt. Here are excerpts from Architectural Digest India’s October 2016 issue
where she talks about living with sister Shaheen, her preference when it comes to what becomes a
part of her private space and that one thing that she had to have in her house:
It was during the shooting of the Vikas Bahl-directed Shaandaar that Alia Bhatt met Richa (Vikas’s
wife), whom she would end up asking to design her new house. Although there was no real brief, she
was very clear about what she didn’t want. “I told Richa I didn’t want it to be too modern. I wanted it to
feel a little old, with a New York loft kind of feel. And I didn’t want anything overtly glamorous, like
chandeliers, or marble floors.” She purchased the house two years ago, choosing it over two others
she had seen, because of its closeness to her parents’ house. “It was really a no-brainer for me,” she
says, with much more confidence than you would expect from a 23-year-old speaking of her first home.
