While it is known that Kangna Ranaut recently bought a penthouse apartment (a triplex) on the 11th floor of a Bandra building, no one is aware that Sanjay Dutt's wife Maanayata helped her buy her dream home.
The actress from Himachal Pradesh had been looking for a spacious flat for some time as she wants her family to move in with her. The actress happened to mention it to Dharam Oberoi (Sanju's business manager) when she was shooting with his boss for Knock Out. Dharam told her that Maanayata knew some builders and could help her. The actress made a call to the star wife. Maana arranged for a meeting with the builders and Kangna and the deal was struck. The spacious flat is worth over Rs 15 crore but she got a concession because of Mrs Dutt. Not just that, she even got the option to pay the money over a period of time.
A source reveals, "Kangna told Maana that she'd liked the flat and was interested in buying it but she didn't have the money upfront and wanted to pay the money in installments. Maana intervened on her behalf and got the builders to agree. Kangs, a single girl in the city, was grateful for the star biwi's help. They've become friends since.
Dharam confirms, "When Kangna was searching for a flat in Bandra, Maanayata stepped in and sorted it out for her; plus got her a good deal. The deal is final and the flat will be ready by next year. It's a sprawling place with a swimming pool, health club facilities, etc. Ms Ranaut will have a private lift as she bought the penthouse. It's one of the poshest buildings in that area. She's really working hard on the payments and plans to move in by next year."
Says the Once Upon A Time... actress, "I was looking for a bigger flat as I want my family to live with me. My sister is getting married next year and the 3-BHK flat I stay in, is going to be too small for us. Maanayata has helped me get a good deal." Last month, when Kangna was in Dubai, she went shopping for her pregnant new friend. She bought a lot of gifts for the babies, clothes, toys, and maternity clothes for the mommy-to-be.
