Shah Rukh Khan is one of the wealthiest actors in the world. So owning something that costs Rs 200 crore doesn’t surprise us too much although it does things to our head when we realise the condition of our bank accounts. But he didn’t pay Rs 200 crore to buy it. The actor only paid Rs 13.32 crore. We are talking about Mannat, the mecca of all SRK fans. The superstar bought this property on lease in 2001 and renamed it. In fact, SRK paid a one-time occupancy fee of Rs 8.3 crore. TBH, we kind of feel a bit better than Shah Rukh Khan paid rent before to live in Mannat just like us. He feels more relatable now.
Yes, Shah Rukh Khan pays the rent for staying in Mannat. As per a report in Housing.com, the actor bought the 2,446 sq. metre space in 2001. It was initially called Villa Vienna. He paid a minimal rent of Rs 2,325/year since then. But after the Mumbai government revised the land lease rates which gave the occupants the option to either cough up Rs 19 lakh/year for 30 years or go for one-time occupancy fee of Rs 8.3 crore, things changed. Hindustan Times reported that SRK chose to pay the occupancy fee. Speaking about his most expensive buy, the actor had said, “I am from Delhi and Delhiites have the concept of living in a kothi (bungalow). In Mumbai, the concept is to live in apartments, but in Delhi, even if one is not well off, they still own a small bungalow.”
