Fashionscandal.com was the FIRST to report in November 2010 about Samir Thapar of JCT and few other Thapar Companies selling off everything and leaving India for good. You can read the older post in the Archives or here - http://fashionscandal.com/index.php/2010/11/sameer-thapar-…his-properties/
JCT, the Thapar Company owned a prestigious football team in India. The team had great players but now with the sudden shut-down of the team as its owner is cooling his heels in Canada, the 20 odd talented players suddenly find themselves in the lurch. Samir Thapar sold off his Lutyen’s Delhi House to DLF for an astounding Rs.300 Crores. Now sources tell me that Rajiv Singh of DLF is rennovating that huge palatial house to gift it to his daughter.
Samy (that’s what friends called Samir) Thapar lived an extravagant life. Fast cars, fast babes and lately his Aurangzeb Road house had become The After-Party Adda in town for every trashy firang girls. All sorts of expat girls – from backpackers to NGO workers to lingerie models illegally working without work-permit landed at Samy’s house for flowing booze, great food, luxuriant bathrooms to powder their nose and much-much more. Samir Thapar’s businesses weren’t doing good. How can they when the man is partying hard every night??? Reportedly he was in huge debts and that’s when he liquidated his properties and moved off to Canada.
Now Ajay Singh who dreamt of making it big when he left his modest home in Ropar last year and signed a two-year deal with JCT has nowhere to go. The young striker, who comes from a poor background, did make his mark by scoring five of JCT’s 17 goals in the I-League but today he is a devastated man. With JCT disbanding the team abruptly, Ajay is jobless. A few clubs approached him immediately at the end of the I-League but he rejected those because he had a two-year contract with JCT. Now, no one knows from where he will receive his next month’s salary.
Industrialist Sameer Thapar recently sold off his sprawling Aurangzeb Road Bungalow for an unheard amount before – Rs. 280 Crores. The buyer is none other than Real Estate Tycoon – Rajiv Singh of DLF.
And guess who are upset about Sammy selling off his Lutyen’s Bungalow? Well they are a bunch of expat girls who enjoyed after-hour parties at Sammy’s place. Some even lived out of that house. Poor girls! I pity them because what a big transition for them, from a sprawling Bungalow at Aurangzeb Road to cramped-up Barsatis in Defence Colony. And yeah no more free booze, free food and free partying every night with an occasional ride in Sammy’s Ferrari.
But it’s not just the Aurangzeb Road Bungalow that Sameer Thapar has sold off. I learnt from valued resources that he liquidated most of his properties as he is in a major resource crunch.
Guys, I am spilling a top-secret information so use it judiciously. If you love to party and wanna party on after all clubs shut down, just head for Samy’s house at Aurangzeb Road.
Our man who loves fast cars has a big heart. If you happen to pass through Samy’s house around the wee hours, you will see loads of cars and also three-wheelers parked outside. Anybody and everybody with a firang companion can walk in and party till sun rise. In fact the backpackers from Paharganj land up too and that explains the three wheelers rubbing shoulders with Ferraris and Lambhorginis outside.
Freeloaders ki toh aish ho gayee!
