When Shah Rukh Khan revealed Mannat is the most expensive thing he bought
Apart from being one of the most successful actors, Shah Rukh Khan also has a sports business, his VFX company, several brand endorsements, and other business ventures. It is no secret that the superstar owns some incredibly expensive things- right from swanky expensive cars to luxurious homes. While he owns truckloads of expensive items, his palatial sea-facing abode Mannat in Bandra, Mumbai, remains one of his most expensive properties. According to reports, Mannat is worth approximately Rs 200 crores.
In an earlier interview with Radio Mirchi, Shah Rukh Khan mentioned that his house Mannat is one of the most expensive things he has bought. He shared that he hails from Delhi, and had never owned a house, and also aspired to own a large house of his own. He said that for people in Delhi, bungalows are the norm, while people in Mumbai mostly live in apartments. “Main na Delhi se hoon aur mere paas kabhi ghar nahi tha. Mere maa-baap chal base, toh mujhe ghar ka bada fetish tha, ki mere paas ek bada sa ghar ho. Hum Dilliwale hai, toh humare liye kothi ek normal concept hai. Mumbai mein apartments ka concept hai but Delhi ke andar even if you are not very well to do, sabke paas chhoti-chhoti kothiyaan hoti hai,” said SRK.
He shared that when he came to Mumbai with his wife Gauri Khan, they lived in a small apartment, and his mother-in-law would often say that it was a rather small house. “When I came to Mumbai, I was already married and was living in a small apartment with my wife Gauri. My mother-in-law would keep saying, ‘You live in such a small house.’ Eventually, when I saw Mannat, it felt like that Delhi wala kothi and so I bought it and that was the most expensive thing I bought,” he said.
Shah Rukh Khan’s expensive assets
Apart from his sea-facing mansion Mannat, Shah Rukh Khan also owns a holiday home in Alibaug. The Alibaug farmhouse is located on the Deja Vu farms and reportedly spans over 20,000 square meters. SRK and his family often host get-togethers and parties at this house. Apart from this, he also reportedly owns a home in Palm Jumeirah, Dubai, named Jannat, and another in Park Lane, London.
