He subsequently decided to sell his apartment in Mumbai and shift to Kolkata where his family resides.

“Due to medical emergencies, I am forced to sell my house on an urgent basis. It’s a 650 sq.ft 7th floor flat in Patliputra Nagar, Oshiwara with clear papers, no loan and overlooking the new Metro. The recliner price is 1.15, but I am letting it go for 1.05. The person who bought the flat lost her job due to the lockdown, and couldn’t complete the deal. So it’s in the market again. Genuine buyers are solicited and a quick deal is sought, as l need to relocate to Kolkata asap. The flat (3-D/703, Patliputra Nagar, opposite Mega Mall, Oshiwara) can be inspected at any time,” the actor had shared in a Facebook post on July 5.
