Late Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput’s apartment up for rent: reports

BollyWood|: The apartment where Sushant Singh Rajput was found dead is reportedly now up for rent with the owners of the duplex flat in Bandra — a suburb in Mumbai — looking for a new tenant to snap up the property. The late Bollywood actor died by hanging in the apartment on June 14 last year. His death sparked an investigation that saw several Indian authorities including the Mumbai Police, the Narcotics Control Bureau, the Enforcement Directorate and the Central Bureau of Investigation involved. While findings by the medical board of AIIMS India concluded in September 2020 that the actor’s death was a case of suicide, the CBI is still to conclude whether Rajput died by suicide or was there was foul play involved.

According to a report by India Today, Rajput had rented out the three-bedroom, two-floor apartment for Rs450,000 per month and it was put back on the market six months after his death.

After [the] second wave [of COVID-19], we are witnessing a slowdown in big-ticket rentals. Also, the fact that Sushant stayed there, has been a deterrent. A few Bollywood personalities looking for [a] house were shown the flat, but they didn’t opt for it. Landlords are also reluctant to rent flats to stars,” a property broker was quoted by the news entity. Yesterday, on the actor’s first death anniversary, several fans congregated outside the apartment building to light a candle in his memory. Rajput’s family held a small religious ceremony in his honour, while several Bollywood stars including Sara Ali Khan, Shraddha Kapoor, Kriti Sanon, Priyanka Chopra Jonas and Pulkit Samrat paid tribute to Rajput on social media. The actor’s former girlfriend Ankita Lokhande also wrote a touching post about him.

She also penned an emotional tribute to the late star, posting: “There isn’t a moment where I believe that you aren’t here anymore. They said that time heals everything but you were my time and my everything. I know that you are my guardian angel now -watching me with your telescope from the moon and protecting me. I wait for you everyday to come pick me up, I look for you everywhere – I know you’re here with me….” Chakraborty is also under investigation following a probe into a drug angle that has seen the arrests of several members close to Rajput, including her brother Showik, along with the actor’s roommate Siddharth Pithani and the actor’s house help at the time of his death.

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck confirm dating rumours with PDA?

HollyWood|: It might be safe to say that the rumours about ex-partners Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck reuniting might be true. The couple was spotted kissing at a family dinner at Nobu in Malibu, Page Six reported, along with paparazzi pictures that leave little to the imagination. Lopez, 51, and Affleck, 48, were reportedly at a birthday celebration for Lopez’s sister Lydia, with Lopez’s children Max and Emme also in attendance, indicating that this might not just be a summer fling.

Image Credit: REUTERS The ‘Let’s Get Loud’ singer and ‘Argo’ director used to be dubbed ‘Bennifer’ when they were together more than 20 years ago. They dominated headlines in a romance marked by his-and-her luxury cars and a large 6.1-carat pink diamond engagement ring; but it all came crashing down when they abruptly called off their wedding in 2003 and split up a few months later. Reuters said representatives for Lopez declined to comment on Monday, while Affleck’s publicists did not return a request for comment. The pair have been pictured together several times in Los Angeles and Miami in recent weeks, after Lopez and her former baseball player fiance Alex Rodriguez called off their engagement in mid-April after four years together. Monday’s photos were the first in which Lopez and Affleck were seen kissing this time around. Celebrity outlet E! News quoted an unidentified source last week as saying Lopez was planning to move from Miami to Los Angeles to spend more time with Affleck and was looking for schools for her 13-year-old twins Max and Emme.

Affleck went on to marry, and later was divorced from, actress Jennifer Garner. They share three children together. Despite her much-publicised break-ups, Lopez has stayed friends with both Affleck and Anthony. In an April profile about Lopez for InStyle, Affleck and Anthony opened up about the singer and actress’ incredible work ethic. “I thought I had a good work ethic, but I was completely humbled and blown away by what she was committed to doing day in and day out, the seriousness in which she took her work, the quiet and dedicated way she went about accomplishing her goals, and then how she would go back and redouble her efforts,” Affleck said. Singer Anthony gushed about his ex-wife saying: “She’s the first one in the room and the last to leave. The hardest worker I’ve ever met. When we were together, it was quite the opposite for me. That has changed since. I learned so much from her. She’s the original!” — With inputs from Reuters
