Baahubali star Tamannaah Bhatia has denied recent reports that she “paid double” while purchasing a new flat in Versova, Mumbai.
Last month, it was reported that Tamannaah had bought the sea-facing flat in a locality called Baywview at the rate of Rs. 80,778 per sq. ft., which is twice the current rate in Versova. Since the total area of the house she bought is 191 sq. ft. she ended up paying Rs. 16.60 crores for it. That would make it quite possibly the most someone has ever paid to buy a flat in the Western suburbs.
However the actor, who is popular in Telugu and Tamil language films, has now rubbished those reports in particular the detail about paying a higher than usual price.
“I told him, I’m Sindhi, how can I pay double the price for an apartment? After a while, it became embarrassing as people kept asking about it. I have bought a house, but I did not pay double for it. My parents and I will move into it once the house is ready. I just want it to be a simple, artistic house with an earthy look.”Tamannaah Bhatia
Speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Tamannaah said that she had been asked my multiple people about the story, including her Hindi teacher.
Tamannaah also spoke about her upcoming Hindi project Bole Chudiyan opposite Nawazuddin Siddiqui.
“I was looking for a challenging role and as soon as I heard this story, I knew that I had to be a part of it. Also, it’s an opportunity to collaborate with an actor like Nawaz. Ours is a socially relevant film but without being preachy. Most women will be able to connect with my character.”Tamannaah Bhatia
Bole Chudiyan is being directed by Nawaz’s brother Shamas Siddiqui.
