Mumbai, Oct. 6 -- With her latest release, Barfi! entering the Rs. 100 crore club, Priyanka Chopra's status in the industry is similar to the Khans who rule the roost. Now, the word is that she's moving closer to them by moving to their neighbourhood.

The actor, who currently lives in a sprawling Lokhandwala apartment, is rumoured to be looking for a place in Bandra or Juhu, where most big names from Bollywood reside. The former, where the mighty Khans - Shah Rukh, Salman, Aamir and Saif - and even other A-listers like Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina Kaif live, is the preferred area, along with Juhu, where a bunch of big names own lavish homes.

A source claims that a house in either of these areas would make commuting for work easier. "It's a central location, and will help Priyanka negotiate time-consuming traffic. She has spread the word among her friends and is keeping a lookout for a new house herself," says the source.

Priyanka, who's had a good year with Barfi!, and earlier, Agneepath raking in good figures, is currently in Los Angeles, working on her music album. "Even from there, she is regularly in touch with associates back home who give her frequent updates," says the source.

The actor remained unavailable for comment, but her spokesperson confirms, saying "Yes, she is looking for an apartment. The search is on."
