Mumbai means the home of Bollywood. Yes, be it the country’s first film ‘Raja Harishchandra’ or the country’s first talking film ‘Alam Ara’, both these films were made in Mumbai (‘Bombay’ before 1990). Today the Hindi film industry is called ‘Bollywood’ and all the actors and producers of this Bollywood live in Mumbai city only. This city, which has welcomed almost three crore people in its arms, has also made Bollywood its part, so let’s take a look where the real Bollywood lives in Mumbai.
If Mumbai is the Hollywood of the country, then Juhu area is the ‘Beverly Hills’ of this Hollywood. Juhu Beach is the longest beach of Mumbai and most of the ‘stars’ of Mumbai live in this area. Both Amitabh Bachchan’s bungalows ‘Jalsa’ and ‘Prateeksha’ are in Juhu. Both Akshay Kumar and Hrithik Roshan live in Juhu. Before marriage with Ranbir Kapoor, Alia Bhatt also lived in Juhu with her father Mahesh Bhatt and family. Be it Dharmendra, Sunny Deol and Bobby Deol’s ‘Sunny Villa’ or Anil Kapoor’s ‘AK Residence’ or Ajay-Kajol’s ‘Shivshakti’, all these houses are in Juhu. Raj Kundra has also built a bungalow in Juhu for his wife Shilpa Shetty. Both of them have named this bungalow ‘Kinara’.
Along with Govinda, Raveena Tandon, stars like Anupam Kher, Shraddha Kapoor, Vidya Balan, Sonali Bendre-Goldie Behl and Jacqueline Fernandez also live in Juhu.
Bandra area of Mumbai is quite big, but many Bollywood celebrities have made their homes in the western area of Bandra. Pali Hill, Carter Road, these are the streets of Bandra, where many stars live. Bollywood’s King Shahrukh Khan’s house ‘Mannat’ has today become a tourist spot in Mumbai. Salman Khan’s Galaxy Building is a few minutes away from Mannat. Salman lives in Galaxy Building with his entire family. He has purchased most of the flats in this building. Aamir Khan’s house is in Pali Hill, some distance away from Salman and Shahrukh Khan’s house.
