Mahesh Manjrekar to shift to Pune with family


Popular Marathi and Hindi Director and actor, Mahesh Manjrekar, and his wife Medha will soon be shifting out of Mumbai permanently. This disclosure happened when Mahesh and Medha were participating in a Marathi talk show where Mahesh revealed that he will soon be shifting to Pune with wife and kids. When Medha was quizzed about this sudden decision, she said, “We have decided to move to Pune and will be shifting our base by May. We have bought a place in a popular township in Hadapsar where we will be staying. We felt Mumbai was getting claustrophobic. There is no open space left and hardly any recreational options for children apart from malls. The beaches that we frequented as children have become polluted and there is no space left to cycle on roads. There is luxury of space in Pune. It has been a difficult choice, but we are happy for our kids who are looking at getting admission in educational institutes in Pune.”

When asked how they would manage their work while staying in Pune, Medha confidently stated, “I don’t think it should be a problem for Mahesh as most of his shootings take place in Pune and he plans to travel to Mumbai when required. He will soon shift his office to Pune as well. Also, some of our relatives and colleagues are shifting with us to Pune which will make things easy.”
