Mumbai, Nov 18 (IANS) Shilpa Shetty and Raj Kundra will move into a new place in a high-rise in front of the Bachchans' residence Jalsa in Juhu after their marriage Nov 22.
The apartment, owned by filmmaker Vashu Bhagnani, is a temporary arrangement as the couple's dream nest isn't ready yet. Bollywood star Hrithik Roshan's interior designer wife Sussanne is busy doing up their house in Juhu; they will shift into their own home in February or March.
The actress is happy that Raj has decided to move his base from London to Mumbai.
'Shilpa is really, really happy about that Raj Kundra is shifting permanently to Mumbai after marriage. The thought of a long-distance marriage was killing Shilpa. She knew it would be impractical. At the same time she would've been left with no choice if Raj had insisted on being Britain based,' said Shilpa's friend.
Soon after the wedding, Shilpa and Raj will leave for the Lord Venkateshwara temple in Tirupati and then to the Oneness University in Chennai to take the blessings of Shilpa's spiritual guru Sri Amma.
'It was Sri Amma who had predicted that Shilpa will get married this year. She almost did earlier this year. Now it's finally happening,' said the friend.
Shilpa met Raj after her win on the British reality show 'Big Brother' in 2007.
