A few days before he became the quickest man to reach the 7,000-run mark in 161 innings, Virat Kohli bought a spacious flat in Worli. On January 5, the 27-year-old cricketer bought a 8,000 sq feet flat for Rs 34 crore.
The cricketer, who is dating actor Anushka Sharma, booked the 35th floor flat in the Omkar 1973 Worli building. Documents in possession of TGS reveal that the flat in the ‘C’ wing of the plush residential project comes with four parking slots.
In October last year, Virat and Anushka were spotted leaving the Omkar 1973 Worli’s site office. They were apparently there to see the flats. Three months later, on January 5, he signed and registered the deal with the Department of Registration and Stamps. The Ready Reckoner value of the flats is Rs 26.68 crore, while Virat paid Rs 34 crore for the house.
The palatial 5BHK flat is part of ‘Sky Bungalows’ constructed in the housing complex comprising three towers. The flat offers a breathtaking view of the Arabian Sea. According to the developer’s website, “each sky bungalow has a sprawling living room with both dining and seating areas, minimalistic bedrooms with a spa-like bathrooms, kid’s room, gym area, cigar room, kitchen and a servant’s room along with a separate kitchen”. The construction of the residential project is going on in full swing and is slated to be over by 2017 end. The project is spread over 4.5 acres and offers a sports pavilion and a spa.
Virat, who recently broke Sachin Tendulkar’s record by reaching 24 centuries in 161 innings in contrast to 219 innings taken by master blaster, has joined the league of the super rich by buying the palatial apartment in the project. Others who have bought flats in the project include the director of D Y Patil Sports & Infrastructure Pvt Ltd Shivani Vijay Patil, Kalyani Group chairman Dr Baba Kalyani, and several members of the Sancheti family from Nagpur.
