However sources said that the resort is coming up on an eight-acre plot. The farmhouse on the estate will be 20,000 sq ft and work on it has already started.
Among Sandalwood actors Upendra was the first to own a resort. The Ruppies Resort is on the outskirts of Bangalore in-between Mysore Road and Magadi Road. Actor-producer Jai Jagadish is also said to own a stay-home in Goa. Chikmagalore is however the preferred destination for owning resorts being nestled in the Western Ghats.
