Los Angeles- Russell Brand is buying a house in India.

The British comic - who got engaged and married Katy Perry in Jaipur - reportedly wants to spend six months a year in the country with his "spiritual" guides and is currently on the lookout for an estate.

A source said: "Russell consulted his Indian guru early this year about the idea and is now making noise about buying an estate or plantation in India.

"He wants to be closer to his various spiritual, dietary and heath guides in the country and is telling pals that he would like to spend as much as six months out of the year in India."

The 38-year-old star - who split from Katy in December 2011 after just 14 months of marriage - is said to be ready to turn his back on Hollywood in favour of a literary career.

The source added to "He will probably rent a home there immediately before he plunks down the millions he would need to buy a place, but he's serious about this move, arguably more so than his movie career...

"He much prefers writing books to acting and feels that if he can generate a book every two or three years his lavish lifestyle shouldn't have any upkeep issues."
