When your everyday job involves staying in the fanciest hotels around the world, the finely-honed appreciation for real estate is just another souvenir to carry back home. Having claimed the choicest locations in the country, Bollywood’s swish set are now training their gaze on the international map to snap up the most coveted properties around the world. With Priyanka Chopra’s time divided between two continents, she has doubled down on the number of addresses that she calls home, while Shah Rukh Khan’s landmark sea-facing residence, Mannat is accompanied by equally coveted international counterparts. From beachfront holiday homes to elite residences in the top metropolitan cities of the world, here are the exclusive properties that serve as home away from home for your favourite celebrities.
Shah Rukh Khan
The Badshah of Bollywood has a discerning eye for the finer things in life, and it comes as little surprise that his list of acquisitions includes an exquisite villa at Palm Jumeirah, the world’s largest man-made island. Occupying prime real estate on the palm tree-shaped structure, the Signature Villa is spread over 8,500 square feet with six bedrooms and access to a private beach. The palatial villa serves as a fitting accompaniment to his other plush apartment in Park Lane, London. Having often stayed in five-star hotels while vacationing there, Khan splashed out £20 million on a lavish pad for himself in the elite district of central London in 2009.
As one of the most legendary icons of modern cinema, Amitabh Bachchan calls as many as six luxurious homes his own, including a sprawling pad in Paris. In 2013, he added the luxury house to the list as a token of his love for his wife, Jaya Bachchan who then proceeded to do the interiors. The French capital has long struck the fancy of the power couple—the duo fell in love with the romantic city on an anniversary trip a few years prior.
Khan’s neighbourhood shares good company with Abhishek and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who own a posh property in Sanctuary Falls in Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai. The couple invested in an expansive villa for their family of three, which was said to be ready for possession by 2016, with Rai Bachchan and her daughter, Aaradhya making special trips to the property to finalise the interiors. The villas in Sanctuary Falls reportedly expand up to 10,600 square feet, each of which is outfitted with resort-style pools, luxurious interiors and manicured landscapes.
Her jet-set schedule means that her time is monopolised by the interiors of an airplane cabin, but when she is New York, Chopra calls a sweeping penthouse her home. Located on the top floor of a high-rise in Manhattan, one of the New York’s most romanticised neighbourhoods, the lavish pad is anointed with sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows that offer remarkable views of the city skyline. After tying the knot with beau Nick Jonas in late 2018, the duo have been sharing a lavish house in Los Angeles that the latter had reportedly purchased before their wedding. Spread over 4,100 square feet, their marital abode plays host to five bedrooms, four bathrooms, a private pool with expansive views of the hills—and likely, the Mercedes Maybach that he gifted his wife after ‘Sucker’ hit #1 on the charts.
Shilpa Shetty Kundra
When you’re married to one of the most beautiful women in the industry, champagne and caviar just doesn’t cut it. Not one to miss the memo, Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s businessman husband, Raj Kundra has been leaving no stone unturned in pampering his wife and their son, Vivaan. One of their wedding anniversaries was marked with a luxurious apartment on the 19th floor of the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa. While the apartment was eventually sold as it was deemed too small for their son and accompanying entourage, the couple also owns a sprawling seven-bedroom property called Raj Mahal in Surrey, in addition to another penthouse in Central London opposite Selfridges in Oxford Street.
