Actor Shahid Kapoor has finally managed to find himself a flat that he can truly it home. Nearly six months after it was reported that the Padmaavat actor has started hunting for a new house in the wake of growing prostitution menace outside his Juhu flat, Shahid has finally bought a luxury duplex in Worli area.
According to reports, Shahid paid Rs 55.60 crore for his flats on 42nd and 43rd floors of Tower B of Three Sixty West as well as paying Rs 2.91 crore as stamp duty to the government for its registration.
A report by DNA said that the areas of both the flats are reportedly 427.98 square metre and 300.48 sq m respectively with a considerably large balcony spanning 40.88 sq m. The total area adds up to 801.30 sq m, or 8,625 sq ft, the DNA report further added.
The property has been registered jointly in the names of 37-year-old Shahid and his 24-year-old wife, Mira Rajput. The deal was finalised on 27 June, while the registration of the property took place on 12 July.
Among Shahid’s neighbours in the new tower will be Akshay Kumar and Abhishek Bachchan, who paid Rs 27.94 crore and Rs 41.14 crore respectively.
In February, we reported how Shahid had gone on flat hunting after getting frustrated by the growing menace of prostitution in his neighbourhood. Shahid had blought his flat in Juhu in 2014, before he married Mira.
“There are a couple of specific prostitutes who are always standing on the beach, very close to Shahid’s garden area. It is terribly embarrassing and no solution seems to be in sight, roz ka kissa ban gaya hai,” a source close to family had said in February.
Mira is currently pregnant with her second child. Her first child, Misha Kapoor, was born in August 2016, a year after the couple tied the knot. Mira’s second pregnancy has caused a great of excitement in the media, with paparazzi constantly chasing the star wife for photos.
