Bollywood Stars and their Bungalows

With money, you can build grand dreams. A common man puts in endless efforts to fulfill his small desires whereas on the other hand, the huge amount of money is nothing for the Bollywood biggies. This is what some of our celebrities have done. Take a look at these palatial constructions.

Aashirwad, the late Rajesh Khanna’s bungalow at Carter Road, Bandra remains a landmark. It was here that the actor tasted unparalleled superstardom as well as unimaginable failure. Fittingly, it was at this very place that he breathed his last

Mannat is a dream Shah Rukh Khan built. Coming to Mumbai with no godfather in showbiz, SRK’s extravagant abode at Bandstand, Bandra stands testimony to his unprecedented rise as a superstar. The bungalow of Sharukh Khan is one of the most popular celebrity homes. Mannat is an appropriate name given to his house.
The bungalow once belonged to a wealthy Parsi family but is currently taken up by King Khan who lives in it with his wife, two children and sister. He has made sure that the house completely satisfies his standards for which every facility is introduced in the house right from the swimming pool to the library. Not only this; he has got a building constructed behind the bungalow which serves as a business cum recreation center.


Legendary lyricist Gulzar has a bungalow in Pali Hill named Boskiyana, which is named after his daughter Meghana Gulzar, who is lovingly called Bosky

The affluent Kapoors, Rishi, Neetu and Ranbir, reside at Krishna Kunj in Pali Hill, Bandra

Rekha's bungalow at Bandra, Sea Spring, is as closely guarded as her personal life. With trees and the bamboo barricade, hardly any portion of her house is visible

Amitabh Bachchan’s house, Jalsa which means pleasure, is the most exclusive of all. Located in suburban Mumbai, it is a tourist landmark for the city which is visited by the scores of people especially on the birthday of stars. Various sources have revealed that Big B has bought another one for the sum of 50 crores.
The Bachchans own two sprawling bungalows in Juhu, which are just a kilometre apart. Amitabh, Jaya, Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai reside in Jalsa.

Big B’s younger brother Ajitabh now lives in Prateeksha. Both houses are nothing short of tourist attractions in the city

Imran Khan’s 24 Pali Hill residence belonged to the actor’s grandfather, filmmaker Nasir Hussain. Khan has named the bungalow NH in the latter’s memory. The house was also the venue of Imran’s wedding to Avantika, in January 2011

This is dreamgirl Hema Malini's bungalow at Gokuldham in Goregaon (east)

Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar moved into this five-storeyed bungalow, spread over 6,000 square feet, at 19-A, Perry Cross Road, a coveted address in the queen of the suburbs (Bandra), back in 2011. He earlier resided in La Mer building, also in Bandra

We zoom in on few buildings that are thickly populated by Bollywood residents. Oberoi Springs on Andheri Link Road seems to be one complex where many Bollywood personalities have rented or bought houses. Kangna Ranaut recently got herself a flat in the highrise. Akshay Kumar, Hema Malini and Bobby Deol have invested in flats in the complex. South star Dhanush, Esha Gupta, Yaami Gautam, Hansika Motwane, Claudia Ciesla and Ayushmann Khurrana also have flats here

Oberoi Sky Gardens (Lokhandwala): Singer-turned-actor Himesh Reshammiya grabbed headlines when he booked a duplex flat in this building, which is said to be one of the most expensive houses in Andheri. His neighbours include Farah Khan, Manoj Bajpayee, Shriya Saran, Ganesh Hegde, Adnan Sami, Allan Amin, Bhushan Kumar and Adnan Sami.

Garden Estate (Goregaon Link Road): This particular place can easily be called a star building as it occupies the maximum number of actors in the industry. While Ranveer and Konkona Sen Sharma moved out of their house and shifted to Versova, some of those still staying here are Rajat Kapoor, Ravi Kishan, Vinay Pathak, Deepak Tijori, Yash Tonk, Chavi Mittal, Hansal Mehta, Shweta Bharadwaj, Akhilendra Mishra, Aditya Lakhia, Sonu Walia and Babul Supriyo

Raj Classic (Versova): The celeb address is famous for ex-lovers Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra, who were earlier staying in the building. However, some other prominent names staying in the same skyscraper are Minissha Lamba, Karan Nath, Roshan Abbas, Satish Kaushik, Pankaj Kapoor, Abbas Tryrewala, Daboo Malik, Hiten Tejwani and Amar Upadhyay

Aamir Khan has also managed to seclude his home from the public. He lives in Bella vista apartments of Bandra. The fans can just manage to have a look at one or two windows of his apartment.

You might have observed the use of extravagant sets in any of the daily soaps of Ekta Kapoor? Some of the shots are taken in the bungalow of Jeetendra named as Krishna. The lavish sets certainly depict the clean and well designed architecture of the house.

 The apartment of Salman Khan is few yards away from Mannat. It seems like he is not so fussy about the apartments. He lives with his parents Salma and Salim Khan, younger sister Arpita, younger brother Sohail Khan, Sohail’s wife and their son.

stylish actor of today has a very sophisticated apartment. Yes we are taking about John Abraham. He has a sea facing home with ample amount of spaciousness. His house is cool and classy like him.
