Originally, Prem Nazir’s Laila Cottage was under his youngest daughter Rita’s guardianship. She later passed the property on to her daughter. Since the family is settled in the United States, it has become difficult for them to look after this property. Because of this unavoidable circumstance, they have decided to sell it.
Sine Prem Nazir lived his life there, the residents in the area want the Government to buy Laila Cottage and turn it into a memorial. People from all over the world can then come and experience the personal world of Prem Nazir. Even though it looks like an abandoned property from afar, it can be turned into a small experiential destination for tourists if the Government is really interested.
