Alia Bhatt has moved in with her sister Shaheen Bhatt in her own house designed by Richa Bahl, who also happens to be Alia's film Shaandar director, Vikas Bahl's wife. Talking about her new home she said, “I told Richa I didn’t want it to be too modern. I wanted it to feel a little old, with a New York loft kind of feel. And I didn’t want anything overtly glamorous, like chandeliers, or marble floors.” She purchased the house two years ago, choosing it over two others she had seen because of its closeness to her parents’ house.
“It was really a no-brainer for me,” shared the actor. Alia Bhatt and her sister Shaheen made sure they had a tea bar as both of them are, “really into tea. Just totally obsessed.” Richa fashioned Alia’s dressing room into a separate space to ensure the rest of the house would be private, even if the actress was in the midst of fittings. “You know, when she’s getting ready it’s not just her. There’s the stylist, the make-up artists, the spot boys, the ironing guys… it’s like a mela in there,” said Richa.
