More 'room' to manoeuvre: Rohit Sharma buys villa in exclusive project in Khandala
Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma has reportedly purchased a villa in a real estate project owned by a popular actor in Khandala for Rs 5 crore
Mumbai Indians (MI) skipper Rohit Sharma has reportedly purchased a villa in a real estate project owned by a popular Bollywood actor in Khandala for Rs 5 crore.
Rohit, whose side is currently battling it out for a place in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2016 playoffs, has purchased the villa in actor Suniel Shetty-owned S2 Realty's 'Discovery' in Khandala, according to a report on Mid-Day.
The 5 BHK villa, which is currently under construction and will be complete with a lawn and a swimming pool, has a total area of 7,500 square feet. The project is said to be an exclusive one, which has drawn a lot of Mumbai's elite, and the builders are selective when it comes to their customers.
According to a report on The Indian Express, Rohit had purchased a flat in the 29th floor of Ahuja Towers in Prabhadevi worth Rs 30 crore last August.
The Mumbai lad is currently in the news for his form with the bat in the ongoing IPL, having racked up 459 runs from 13 innings at 45.90 to emerge the top run-getter for his side so far.
Having won seven and lost six so far in the tournament, Mumbai will look to get past Gujarat Lions in their final league fixture of the ninth edition of the cash-rich league, with Rohit eyeing another big score against his name on the board after a couple of dry knocks.
Mumbai have gone through a roller-coaster ride in their last four games, having beaten Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Delhi Daredevils convincingly, while getting thrashed by Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) and Kings XI Punjab (KXIP). A win in their final game of the group stage will virtually confirm their berth in the playoffs, of which MI have been a regular part since 2010.
