Mumbai: Actress Shruti Hassan, who considers Mumbai her second home, is moving into a swanky new apartment in the city.

The 26-year-old actress, born and brought up in Chennai, will soon shift into a rented apartment in Bandra close to her mother Sarika and sister Akshara’s residence.

“Shruti enjoys her work in Bollywood and is receiving several offers that seem interesting – hence the decision to have an independent house in the city, that would make moving back and forth convenient… She’s very excited about it and can’t wait to do up the house,” said a source.

The “Dil Toh Baccha Hai Ji” star confirmed the news, saying, “I’ve always had a connection with Mumbai. My mother and my sister also live here and I’ve even gone to college in Bandra (St Andrews College). So it’s always been like a second home to me. I’m yet to sit on the interiors of the new place. I will be deciding on it very soon.”

The actress was recently seen in Tamil film “3″ opposite ‘Kolaveri Di’ hitmaker Dhanush.
