Shilpa Shetty's boyfriend Raj Kundra has bought the ground floor and first floor flats in Fortune 10, a building along Juhu beach at around Rs 24 crores. The building, close to the ISKCON temple, is one of the most expensive areas in Mumbai. Interestingly, Akshay Kumar and wife Twinkle Khanna had bought the ground floor and first floor flats in the sea-facing Prime Beach apartments off Gandhigram Road in Juhu (barely 100m away from Shilpa and Raj's new place).
According to an estate agent (Vijay from Bandra) who negotiated the deal, Shilpa Shetty's beau, London-based Raj Kundra bought 8,000 sq ft space in a Juhu building for a whopping Rs. 24 crore (approx) last month. The building named Fortune 10 is situated in the prime locality of Juhu and is sea-facing. Vijay says, "Raj bought the ground floor and the first floor of the building. According to the broker, Raj bought the space around a month back and is currently reconstructing the structure. Raj and Shilpa have been looking for a good place. This one was perfect for them, especially now that Raj wants to shift base to Mumbai."
Sangeet Kumar, another real estate broker from Juhu, confirmed that the deal had taken place. He also claims that this property was eyed by many. "This is an exclusive piece of land; nowhere in Juhu is such a huge property with sea view available. This deal also indicates that people do pay a good amount for their dream home," added Kumar.
Sources tell us that Hrithik Roshan's wife Sussanne (she designed Priyanka Chopra's new flat in Versova) is designing Raj and Shilpa's apartments with Shilpa looking into the minutest of details. "Shilpa is taking personal interest and care as this bungalow is very special for her. The interior designing will take a couple of months after which Raj will shift in."
