Shahid Kapoor recently bought himself a new home in Worli. The Rs 56 crore worth property is a duplex on the 42nd and 43rd floors of a high rise. He will be neighbours with Abhishek Bachchan and Akshay Kumar. The actor and his wife are awaiting the birth of their second child and as they reflect upon designing of their new home, they are keeping their children’s needs ahead of theirs. Shahid feels this was an investment he needed to make as his Juhu home is smaller and with two children (the second one arriving in September), the requirement of the family has changed.

Speaking to DNA, the actor recalled, “Earlier, when I was house-hunting, I would tell my estate agent that I want a place where there were few neighbours. I didn’t want anyone gawking at me. I wanted to go home quietly and not be waylaid by people.”
