Alia Bhatt, who is currently basking in the success of her last release, Raazi, has reportedly bought a 2,300 square feet apartment in a sought-after building in Juhu for as much as Rs 13.11 crore. As per reports in DNA, Alia paid almost double the amount of the standard price (which amounts to somewhat Rs. 7 crore). Alia had to pay a stamp duty of Rs 65.5 lakhs for the property.
Talking about Alia paying double the price for her flat, Sangeet Hemant Kumar of SHK Ventures told the daily, "There's a premium attached to these properties and going by the rate, the price that Bhatt paid for this property isn't very high. The property is exactly like a house a celebrity would like to invest in."
A report in BollywoodLife speculates that the move comes as Alia plans for a future with boyfriend Ranbir Kapoor. The couple have been spotted at several occasions together, the most recent being the Mumbai police’s annual Umang event.
Alia’s father, director Mahesh Bhatt, speaking about the relationship told the Telegraph, ''Well, of course they’re in love. You don’t need to be a genius to get that!''
Speaking to Hindustan Times, Alia had recently said, ''It’s not as if a relationship is an achievement. It is just a part – and a very important part – of my life. It’s seamless as well as beautiful, and should be celebrated when it has to be. Right now, it should just be left on its own and kind of kept in a corner where it can stay safe and warm.''
Alia and Ranbir will star opposite each other for the first time in the upcoming fantasy film, Brahmastra, directed by Ayan Mukerji. But before that, Alia will be seen opposite Ranveer Singh in director Zoya Akhtar’s Gully Boy.
