Rajkummar Rao paid his Roohi co-star Janhvi a beautiful Rs 44 Crore to sell him a luxury triplex flat in Juhu, Mumbai. Years after buying it for Rs 39 Crore in December 2020, Janhvi sold the apartment to Rajkummar and his wife Patralekha. The property has a floor space of 3,456 square meters and at about Rs 1.27 lakh per square meter, it is one of the most expensive residential deals in the history of the country. The deal between Rajkummar and Patralekha, the daughter of Boney Kapoor, and the late actor Sridevi was finalized on March 31, 2022, although it was not officially registered until July 21, 2022.
According to several media sources, the new owners paid a stamp duty of Rs 2.19 crore, a significant increase from Janhvi Kapoor’s stamp duty payment of Rs 78 lakh two years earlier. According to a report in the UK Time News, the state government’s 3% rebate granted to property buyers between September 2020 and December 2020 to encourage construction in the city is behind the difference in stamp duty.
According to the registration papers, Rajkummar and Patralekha’s current residence is in the same building. Though it’s unclear if they own the house they currently live in or if they just rent it out. The Rajkummar-Patralekha purchase comes after other Bollywood celebrities spent a lot of money on mansions in 2022. In July, Ranveer Singh paid Rs 119 crore for a residence in Bandra Bandstand, while Kajol paid Rs 11.95 crore in January 2022 for two apartments in the same building as that of Rajkumar.
