Shahid Kapoor Opens Up About the Reason Behind Buying His New House Worth ₹56 Crores

"I wanted to go home quietly and not be waylaid by people."

Shahid Kapoor and his wife Mira Rajput plan to live with their expanding family (yes, there's gonna be baby no.2 soon!) in a new house—and according to a report by DNA—just purchased a sea-facing luxury apartment in Worli, Mumbai. As of now, they are putting up in a flat in Juhu, and have reportedly been hunting for a new house for quite a while.



Their adorable li'l daughter Misha, whom we catch an occasional glimpse of on their social media, is soon to turn two and with a second child on the way, the family wanted to shift to a bigger and more fam-friendly abode, as per these reports.

In conversation with DNA, the Batti Gul Meter Chalu actor talked about the same and said, 

"I have bought a new home in Central Mumbai. It will be a year-and-a-half, perhaps even two before we do the interiors and move in there. However, it’s an investment that I needed to make. I have a much smaller home in Juhu and with two children, the requirement of the family has changed."



It's true that celebs signed up for a life that is almost, always surrounded by the shutterbugs. But as they start a family, especially if they don't wish their children to be exposed to the clicking cameras, they yearn for privacy. On that note, Shahid explained, "Earlier, when I was house-hunting, I would tell my estate agent that I want a place where there were few neighbours. I didn’t want anyone gawking at me. I wanted to go home quietly and not be waylaid by people."

Talking about his dream home that they just purchased, Shahid further added, "The new home that Mira and I have booked has a garden and other amenities like a gymnasium, etc. Today, our requirement is having a safe place for Misha where she can play with others. We want her to be with kids of her age because that’s how she will have a regular childhood."

Currently under construction, this is what Three Sixty West is expected to look like this once it is completely built. The skyscraper is built in a manner that each house enjoys a magnificent sea view with utmost privacy.
