Once Upon a time…..
Shah Rukh khan‘s school teacher asked him what he would like to become in future, he said that he would go to Bollywood. His teacher tried to explain to him that his dream was a bit unrealistic as he had no contacts there. He even tried to talk to his mother who in turn replied, “If my Shah Rukh says it will happen, it will happen!” The faith his parents had in his dreams was extremely valuable.
and Later Shah Rukh Khan came to Mumbai only for a year to do 3-4 films and then he planned to go back to Delhi and stay at his dying mother’s bed. However, gradually, he got success here and that one year hasn’t ended yet.
We know SRK as a man of struggle with a career line only going upwards. However, most of us don’t know that he made his career on rejected roles. Afraid of tinkering with the image of a conventional romantic hero, Aamir Khan rejected the role of an obsessed lover in Darr. Salman Khan refused to play the ruthless avenger in Baazigar and Saif Ali Khan rejected DDLJ. All these roles fell through to SRK who contrived the off beat roles with his own style, passion, and hard work and made them bigger than life. These roles are what made Shah Rukh Khan – the superstar.
Today, Shah Rukh Khan, his wife (Gauri), three kids (Suhana, Aryan, youngest son, AbRam) and elder sister (Shehnaz), live near the seashore at Bandstand in Bandra, Mumbai. In 2001, Shah Rukh Khan (SRK) bought a Heritage bungalow from the Bai Khorshed Bhanu Sanjana Trust, which he renamed “MANNAT”.
“Mannat” means “a Vow to the Gods”. In 2005, SRK built a 6 storey building behind his bungalow at Bandstand.
The Market Value of Mannat. which was once named Villa Vienna , when Shah Rukh Khan bought this 2,446 sq. metre (26, 328.52 sq. ft.) sea-facing property in 2001 on a lease, he paid 13.32 crore and renamed it Mannat.
Some beautiful photos of his self-owned Mannat which is not less Than Jannat….
