An insider reveals, "Now they've finally settled for a huge plot situated on 11th road, Juhu. It is in the same lane as Dharmendra's bungalow. On the plot in discussion stands an old three- storeyed building called Husman. The Roshans will demolish the structure and will erect a bungalow in its place.
The Husman building is nearly 15,000 sq ft. "I hear that the deal has cost Roshan Jr nearly Rs 45 crore," adds the source.
Our realestate source says Susanne has been doing the legwork for the house. She has been constantly in touch with the estate agents. She'd really liked the sea-facing plot, but because of lack of privacy and also due to security reasons, she decided against the place.
Problems with dad
Says a source, "Apparently Hrithik and his dad have been facing problems over many issues including that of Hrithik's growing closeness to Barbara Mori. Rakesh had wanted Susanne to accompany Hrithik to the Cannes Film Festival this year instead of Barbara Mori but Hrithik had his way. Hrithik has been staying a floor below his parents in Il Palazzo but right now is feeling stifled by the parental proximity. Hrithik wants to be more independent but hasn't informed his parents about his plans. He wants to finalise the deal and then inform his parents."
While Hrithik remained unavailable for comment Rakesh Roshan initially said, "I don't understand what are you talking about. I simply know that no one is shifting." When informed that Hrithik is on the verge of finalising a 45-crore property deal in Juhu and that he plans to build a new bungalow there, Roshan Sr says, "It's not true."
