Sushant Singh Rajput's flat in Mumbai gets a tenant

Update : 05 Jan 2023, 14:45

Nearly three years after bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead at his Mumbai home, the  Mont Blanc Apartments on Carter Road in Bandra West, has found its new tenants.

The sea-facing flat belongs to an NRI who will be renting it out at the cost of INR 5 lakh per month along with a security deposit of INR 30 lakh.

Sushant had rented the flat in December 2019 for three years. At the time, he was reportedly paying a rent of Rs. 4.51 lakh. 

The sources revealed that a broker named Rafique Merchant confirmed that the house is finally renting out. He revealed that the owner of the house contacted him regarding the matter a few months back. “We have found somebody (a tenant). We are in the final stage of talks with the family to finalize things. People are now relaxed about it (Sushant’s death) because they say it has been a while.”

Merchant had mentioned how people had been scared to even take a look at the flat which was a reminder of the tragedy and the dramatic chain of events that followed in its aftermath.

"The owner is also very particular and doesn’t want to come down on the rent. If he does, it’ll be sold quickly. Since he’s selling it at the market price, tenants prefer buying some other flat of a similar size in the same area since it would come without the baggage of controversy that this flat is associated with, revealed the broker," he added.

Merchant further disclosed: “The clients are informed in advance that this is where Sushant used to stay. Some people don’t mind the history and want to go for it. But their friends and family members discourage them from going ahead with the deal. Now, the owner is very clear that he doesn't want to rent out the flat to a film celeb, no matter who or how big he or she is. He wants to hand over the flat to a corporate person.”

The property measures at 2,500 square feet, has four bedrooms with attached bath and a terrace. It also has a terrace.
