Salman Khan has for years stuck to his 3-bedroom apartment in Bandra (Mumbai) because he can’t live away from his parents.
Ranbir Kapoor has bought his own swanky pad where he moved in with Katrina Kaif. But now he intends to move right back in with his parents Rishi and Neetu Kapoor as soon as the renovation of their family bungalow Krishnraj is complete.
Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor have bought themselves a much larger place than the one that they stay in right now. They spent two years doing up the new place. But they now feel they don’t need more space,so they’ll stay where they are right now,since the current residence is large enough for them and their little son Taimur.
The Nightingale Lata Mangeshkar has stayed in the same cosy apartment in the highrise named Prabhukunj on Peddar Road in Mumbai for the last 45 years,.
“I bought land in a posh locality , built a big home on it, in the hope of moving in . But somehow I was never able to tear myself away from the home that I share with my sister Usha , my brother Hridaynath , his wife(my Bhabhi)and their children. My other sister Meena lives a stone’s throwaway, with her family. Even my other sister Asha(Bhosle) used to live next to me in Prabhukunj with just a wall and a door separating our rooms. But now she lives away from Prabhukunj with her son.”
According to Lataji being close to one’s family is most vital. “Family gives you a sense of belonging, an identity. I feel I am nothing without myfamily.”
