If you have the fame and fortune, it’s only natural to think about future investments. Well Deepika Padukone is smartly investing in real estate. The actress has recently purchased a sprawling 2,776 sq foot four bed roomed apartment with three parking slots in BeauMonde Towers, Prabhadevi.
The said flat is on the 26th floor of a 33-storey tower which comes with a price tag of a whopping Rs.16 crore. But for a place that is as close to the Siddhivinayak temple, we guess it’s worth every penny spent.
It is also learnt that the actress and her father had visited the property registration office at the Old Custom House in Fort to pay stamp duty for their new apartment, which amounted to approximately Rs. 79,82,600, and was done jointly in Deepika and her father’s name.

According to sources, he might decide to shift to his new property, probably after replacing the four-storied building with a swanky bungalow.
Recently, John was spotted at the Bandra Kurla Complex base property registration office, where he had come with his mother Phiroza Abraham to register the new property.
He bought Green Acre building, situated at Union Park Road No.5, from Parvez Ratanshah, Havovi Khanna and Bhanu Ratanshah. They were seen with him at the registration office.
John paid Rs 95 lakh as stamp duty and Rs 60,000 as registration charges.
When we tried to contact people living around John’s new acquisition, most said they did not know anything about the deal. However, Narayan Rajput, sub-registrar Class II, confirmed the news that John had visited the registration office to complete formalities for the Khar property on October 8. “He also posed for More >
