Riteish Deshmukh sells Pali Hill bungalow


Bollywood actor Riteish Deshmukh has decided to sell his Pali Hill bungalow. The Bangistan actor had bought this property eight years ago from Amjad Khan’s family with the idea of starting a commercial venture. But as things did not materialized as expected he decided to let go of the dream.

Riteish bought Bungalow no. 7, which is a part of the Green Acre Society, eight years ago and two years later, came up with the idea of converting it into a luxury spa. He tried convincing the other residents and even approached the BMC for permissions. But the city’s municipal corporation, paying heed to the residents’ complaints, refused to greenlight the project. The actor recently sold the bungalow to Taifique Gazinia, who deals in leather goods.

Confirming this, Madhu Poplai, secretary of the Pali Hill Residents’ Association, said “This iconic structure earlier belonged to the late actor Amjad Khan and then was sold to Riteish Deshmukh. Riteish wanted to start some commercial activity in the bungalow, but was not allowed to do so. So he has now sold it to a businessman.”
