Actor Sunil Anand’s son lives in the USA. His daughter Devina used to live with her mother in Ooty. In such a situation there is no one to take care of this house in Mumbai. For this reason, Sunil and Devina are now going to sell this house.
Kalpana and Dev Anand lived in this house for about 40 years.

It is said that this place was not so popular when Dev Anand built this bungalow. However, today it is considered the most posh and expensive area of Juhu.
In an old interview with the media, Dev Anand had talked about his house. He had said: “We built this house in 1950.” Back then, Juhu was like a small village. There was a forest here. Now Juhu has become a very crowded area.
