New Delhi: TV actor Eijaz Khan who is currently seen in Sony TV’s new show ‘Yeh Moh Moh Ke Dhaage’ is not able to get a rented accomodation in the suburb of West Mumbai Bandra for past eight months because of his Islam religion and pet dogs. The actor who was last seen in Kangana Ranaut and R. Madhavan starrer ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ told leading daily Times Of India, “I want to move out of my current apartment because it reminds me of my past (his ex-girlfriend Natalie Di Luccio had stayed there with him), and has become soulless.”
“Also, my dogs have developed arthritis and it’s painful for them to go up and down three floors for their walk. Moreover, the owner wants to sell it off, too. I have tried every nook and corner of Bandra, but in vain. While members of my community don’t want to rent out their flats to me because I have two dogs, Hindus and Christians refuse because I am a Muslim, “the actor narrated his entire story.
Revealing his celebrity status has mounted trouble for him, Eijaz said, “I keep assuring people that no parties will be held at my place. In fact, I have hosted just one get-together at my current apartment in the past six months. The saddest part is, house owners don’t even agree to meet me. There is no broker who I have not approached. They just inform me that the deal has fallen through either because of my pets or my community. I am tired of it now. I don’t want to move out of Bandra because I have been a Bandra boy and have a social circle here,” the TV actor told Times Of India.
