Rajkummar Rao has made a purchase of a new property in Mumbai’s plush locality Juhu. The actor shelled out Rs 44 crore for the deal. Interestingly, the triplex flat earlier belonged to Rajkummar’s Roohi co-star Janhvi Kapoor who made the purchase in 2020. This is one of the most expensive deals for a property purchase in recent times.
Rajkummar Rao’s new apartment is lavish, to say the least
The flat purchased by Rajkummar is on the 14th, 15th and 16th floors of one of the buildings in Juhu-Vile Parle Development Scheme. It is spread over 3,456 sq ft as per documents accessed by SquareFeatIndia.com and offers the new owners 6 parking slots. The deal between Janhvi and Rajkummar and his wife Patralekhaa was finalised on March 31, 2022 but it was registered on July 21, 2022, as per the documents.
Janhvi Kapoor makes a profit off her Juhu apartment
When Janhvi purchased the Juhu property back in 2020, she splurged Rs 39 crore on it. Now, as Rajkummar and his wife Patralekhaa bought it from her, the deal was finalised at Rs 43.87 crore. The profit made by the former owner is pegged at over Rs 4 crore. Additionally, Rajkummar paid Rs 2.19 crore as stamp duty. Janhvi paid a stamp duty of Rs 78 lakh two years ago. The reason for this difference in stamp duty is on account of the 3 per cent concession offered by the state government to home buyers between September 2020 to December 2020 to boost construction in the city.
