Randhir has now revealed that he is selling the iconic RK residence where he grew up in Chembur.
Upon being asked as to why he felt the need to sell the house, Randhir said, “Rajiv largely stayed with me, he had a house in Pune but he was mostly in Mumbai.” Rajiv Kapoor passed away on 9 February. Randhir had already taken a house in Bandra which is currently being done up for the actor to shift there on a permanent basis. According to ETimes report, his house would have been ready by now if the COVID fear had not stopped the work.
Randhir Kapoor mentioned that after Rajiv’s death, he found himself to be lonely in the ancestral bungalow therefore he felt like shifting closer to the family. Further in the conversation, Randhir said, “My parents had told me that I can stay in this (Chembur) home for as long as I want, but the day I decide to sell it, I will have to share the sale proceeds with my siblings Rishi, Rajiv, Ritu, and Rima.” Randhir mentioned that he is okay with the decision considering he has done well for himself in the decades-long spanning career in Hindi cinema.
