Virat Kohli’s New Rented Flat in Worli
Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s new pad in Worli costs him Rs 15 lakh per month. When Kohli tweeted a picture of him standing atop a skyscraper with a skyline of Worli and the Arabian Sea behind him, everyone thought he had moved into his new house in Omkar 1973, Worli, which he had bought in 2016 for Rs 34 crore.
However, realty sources say the picture is from another Worli building in which Virat has rented a property for Rs 15 lakh per month.
The flat in Raheja Legend, located on Dr Annie Besant Road, measures 2,675.07 sq ft carpet area and is on the 40th floor of the building.
Kohli had tweeted on Thursday, “Where else would you wanna be when you have such a stunning view from home!”
Registration documents available with DNA show that the deal took place in October last year, but the came into force from December 15, 2017. The apartment on the top floor is rented by Kohli for a period of 24 months and 16 days.
The deal was signed by Rahul S Raheja, of Raheja Universal, and Virat Prem Kohli (for Kohli, the authorised signatory was Vikas Kohli). Surprisingly, the address mentioned for Kohli was that of Badrinath Towers, Versova, where Anushka Sharma resides.
Kohli in 2016 had bought a nearly 7,000 sq ft apartment in Omkar 1973, paying a whopping Rs 34 crore. Many confused the picture tweeted by Kohli as the one from this building. “No, it is not from our building, the facade that you can see in the picture doesn’t exist in our building. Though it is from a building close to ours,” said a source from Omkar.
A broker said, “The building of which picture Kohli tweeted is Raheja Legend, the building is in Worli and is a posh one. The last deal that took place over there on rent was Rs 15 lakh and above.”
Kohli has paid a deposit of Rs 1.50 crore for the flat and also paid a stamp duty of Rs 1.01 lakh to the government for registration of the document.
Repeated attempts to contact Kohli failed. However, a close aide of Kohli confirmed that he had moved into the flat and, but didn’t give us any details on whether he’s accompanied by Anushka or whether she still resides in Versova
