Addressing a press conference in this populous city of the United Arab Emirates, the veteran actor was in his element as he told media persons how it was his 'Sindhi' wife Sunita Kapoor who okayed the deal in Mumbai a fortnight ago.

"I am an actor and must admit that I do not have that nose to smell business, but my better half being Sindhi is apt at it" he said amid guffaws from those he was addressing.

Calling Dubai his 'second home' which over the years had endeared itself to him and his family, he said the 'deal appeared lucrative' as real estate was set to appreciate in value in the city owing to the World Expo-2020.

The actor later said that property in Mumbai was 'out of reach for even the richest' and that he and his wife had a harrowing time in finding an appropriate place for their actress daughter Sonam Kapoor.  

"Either the place was not good or it was not affordable," he said, contrasting his experience in Mumbai with his Dubai buy which was 'both within reach and good'.
