Since his death in 2020, the flat where the actor breathed his last, has reportedly been locked. However, this is now about to change with the owner of the flat, reportedly finding a new tenant for the space which will cost an estimated Rs 5 lakh per month.
The flat on Carter Road in Bandra West was vacant as the controversy around the actor’s death and the involvement of political parties, kept prospective tenants away. According to IndiaToday, the owner of the flat, who resides overseas, received several enquiries after media reports circulated about the flat being left vacant for around 2.5 years.
The report states that the interested party is in final talks to move into the house and the deal is likely to conclude soon.
Last year, a flat broker revealed that some prospective tenants were put off from renting the space, but now people have warmed up to moving in as it has been a while since the actor’s death.
Sushant took the flat on rent for 36 months and was supposed to live there till December 2022. SSR lived with his flatmates Rhea Chakraborty, Siddharth Pithani and house helps Neeraj and Keshav.
He was found hanging in his bedroom on June 14, 2020.
The actor’s death case was back in the news following claims made by an alleged hospital staff. A man recently came forward to state that SSR’s body showed signs of a murder and not a suicide. However, his allegations have not yet been proven to be true.
