Mumbai: Godrej Properties Ltd (GPL) on Friday said it has bought Mumbai’s iconic R.K. Studios, founded by legendary film actor Raj Kapoor, for an undisclosed amount.

The company will develop the property, spread across 2.2 acres, into a project spanning 0.35 million sq ft of saleable area comprising modern residential apartments of various configurations as well as a luxury retail experience, Godrej Properties said in a filing to the BSE.

Mint reported on 27th October, 2018, that the company was in talks with the Kapoor family to buy the property for nearly 200 crore.
