Rajkummar reveals Shah Rukh's inspiring advice

Rajkummar has bought a lavish home in Mumbai from Janhvi Kapoor worth 44 crore. Janhvi had purchased the property in December 2020 for 39 crore. Rajkummar, while speaking about his new house said, “Shah Rukh sir had taught me one thing ‘Beta kabhi bhi ghar lega na, toh aukaat se thoda zyaada lena. Kyunki phir na, upar wala bhi dekhta hai aur tu khud bhi zyada mehnat karega (Son, whenever you buy a house, buy one a little beyond your means. That way, you’ll work harder because you’d want to earn it).’ I found this very fascinating.”

He further added, “Having a home in the city is of course a dream and we have built it lovingly, me and Patralekhaa.” Rajkummar and his wife Patralekhaa finalised the deal worth 44 crore with Janhvi in 2022, reported by The Indian Express. The portal also mentioned that the Srikanth actor's new dream home spans over 3456 square feet. Janhvi, who earlier owned the luxurious apartment, is also Rajkummar's Mr and Mrs Mahi co-star.
