Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan is contemplating building his new abode near cricketing genius Sachin Tendulkar’s dream pad.

Buzz has it that the perfectionist Khan of B-Town was in search of a nice location for his new home and wanted it to be in Sachin’s neighbourhood.

Talking to a tabloid, a source said, “Aamir wants a place in Bandra, but he is willing to settle for a bungalow in Khar too. Although, he has got his heart set on Bandra, as he wants to be neighbours with Sachin Tendulkar. He has gone to view a couple of plots near Sachin`s new house on Perry Cross Road.”

However, Aamir isn’t hell-bent on buying a new building or a new bungalow.

“It will be a good investment. He is open to buying an old bungalow and renovating it completely," added the source.
Aamir has been relentlessly in search of his new home since 2008. He was even planning to buy a residential society. But the plan did not materialize so Aamir had to settle with the idea of buying either a piece of land or a bungalow.

“Aamir has dedicated much of his time lately to finding a plot. His present house is not small but he wants a bigger one. He plans to have a large office on the same premises,” said the source.

When a tabloid contacted, a close friend of the actor confirmed the news and said, “He is not ruling out shifting to a posh building. At this point, he doesn`t mind either a building or a bungalow.”
