In 2011, Aamir Khan had wanted to build a bungalow at the Virgo Co-operative Housing Society at Pali Hill, Bandra, which now has two buildings Marina and Bella Vista. Aamir has two flats in Marina and one in Bella Vista.
He wanted to buy up 60 per cent of the flats in the complex and construct the bungalow. However, his plan was opposed by a family who owns two apartments at the complex.
The 3 Idiots actor withdrew his offer in 2014 and rented out another place after a slab fell on a resident in Virgo, injuring him. Now Aamir is back at Marina.
“With everyone staying home, residents are now talking to Aamir to try and get him to revive his offer. The other residents are keen to get the building redeveloped, and who better than Aamir to do it, they feel, because they know and trust him. Moreover, in the absence of additional Floor Space Index (FSI), builders are not keen to invest in the redevelopment, which means that Aamir remains their only option. If these talks go well, Aamir’s plans for a dream home and office will bear fruit,” say sources.
Aamir could also build a small post production studio within the premises to oversee the work on his projects, the sources added.
Aamir is currently working on the remake of 'Forrest Gump' (named Laal Singh Chaddha in Hindi) co-starring Kareena Kapoor.
