Mallika Sherawat has rented a penthouse apartment at one of the swankiest locations in Beverly Hills — The Palazzo in Park LaBrea. When asked about her new address in an affluent neigbourhood, she smiles, "It's very expensive. In fact, most of my earnings are going to go into paying the rent at The Palazzo but I couldn't have it any other way. It's a beautiful place. It's next to Rodeo Drive — one of the shopping havens of the world and between Beverly Hills and Hollywood."
Mallika's two-story penthouse has a city view, arched windows, city views, controlled elevator access (only she can use it to get to her penthouse), large private terraces and a personal swimming pool (5500 sq feet in area) with two levels — a drawing, dining and kitchen below with two bedrooms above. And Roman soaking tubs. It even has an original Picasso painting left behind by the penthouse owner.
Residents of the building are pampered all year round with resort style amenities such as a world-class health spa and club, yoga centre, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a full service concierge, a business center, and 50,000 sq ft of ground floor retail. Mallika says, "I needed to rent a comfortable yet beautiful apartment in LA as I will be flying up and down from India quite often till September and need a pad of my own."
Mallika is a vegan, and she does not know how to cook but she isn't worried, as LA offers some of the best vegan and raw food joints in the country. Mallika has transport too at her service — a ritzy cream-coloured Jaguar. She drives it herself or has a chauffeur on call. And her brother Vikram Singh (co-producer of Mallika's next film Hissss) is not too far away. When he visits LA for the post-production of Hissss, he stays at the Beverly Wiltshire. While the sister chooses to drive her Jaguar, Vikram loves driving around his white Beamer S6.
