Sushant Singh Rajput’s Flat Where He Died did not find a Tenant even after 2.5 years of Demise
Bollywood’s heartthrob Sushant Singh Rajput died of suicide
On June 14, 2020, Bollywood’s heartthrob Sushant Singh Rajput died of suicide. Following this, a lot of controversies erupted, specifically concerning the Bollywood film industry. However, the apartment where he was found dead is lying vacant with the owner trying his best to find a tenant. But nobody is willing to move into the house, due to its history.
The flat in Mumbai where late actor Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead has been up for rent for the last 2.5 years. However, it has not yet found a taker. Real estate broker, Rafique Merchant, recently posted a clip of the sea-facing flat and informed that the flat is available for rent at Rs 5 lakh per month.
Further, the broker disclosed that the owner of the flat, who is an NRI, is not willing to give out his flat to Bollywood celebrities anymore. They are looking for a corporate person as a tenant.

Talking about why there’s no new tenant in the flat, Rafique told Bollywood Hungama, “People are scared to move into this flat. When prospective tenants would hear that this is the same apartment where he died, they would not even visit the flat. Nowadays, people are at least visiting the flat as the news of his death has become old. Yet, the deal is not getting finalized. The owner is also hell-bent 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.”
“The parties are told 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 doesn’t want to rent out the flat to a film celeb, no matter who or how big he or she is. He’s clear that he wants to hand over the flat to a corporate person,” he added.
Previously, during Sushant Singh Rajput’s first death anniversary, there were reports that the flat is up for rent and that due to the COVID crisis, the flat is not finding a tenant.
