We all will agree to the fact that home is the only place, which gives us peace after a long journey. We might explore different cities, dine-in at expensive restaurants and stay at luxurious hotels, but only the walls of our very own abode can give us warmth and keep us calm. And we truly believe that every home has a story, but it is our Bollywood celebrities' mansions that never fail to fascinate and inspire. Their fancy places decorated by top-notch interior designers depict their story of success and hard work.
From Bollywood superstar, Shah Rukh Khan's 6-storey high quintessential palace, Mannat to the heartthrob of the industry, Hrithik Roshan's Juhu bungalow, Paras, these celeb homes will leave your jaws-dropped and your eyes popped. Scroll down as we give a sneak-peek into 4 Bollywood celebrities' famous places and you might get a little inspiration from their mansions!
Shah Rukh Khan's home, Mannat, is the palace of his dreams. The actor had once stated in a media interaction that he can sell off anything in his life but never his house, Mannat. After all, Shah Rukh had bought the place in 2001 at a whopping amount of Rs. 13.32 crores. It is 6-storey high and a sea-facing house, which is located at Bandstand.

The multi-storeyed building has two beautiful living rooms, which are connected by elevators. And it is decorated with paintings of M.F Hussain, antiques and other valuables. The house also has an entire floor for kids playroom, a library, a prayer room, a private bar and a 24x7 working kitchen. It is one of the most expensive houses and it now costs around Rs. 200 crores.
Jalsa is the place from where the legendary actor, Amitabh Bachchan has been greeting his millions of fans across the world. It is the place, which has been giving him the star feel as his fans gather outside his house just to have a glimpse of him. However, not many know that this beautiful abode wasn't Amitabh's own purchase, in fact, it was a gift from the iconic director, Ramesh Sippy for acting in his movie, Satte Pe Satta.

Interestingly, Amitabh's first home, Pratiksha is located just 1km away from Jalsa. The front of the house is beautifully done-up with potted plants that give a sense of relaxation after a tiring day. Jalsa is adorned with mirrored shelves, floor-to-ceiling windows, glass chandeliers, plush rugs, baroque pieces, spectacular paintings inspired by royal heritage and high traditional arches. And there is a wall at Amitabh's home, which is dedicated to carefully selected family pictures.
The supermodel-turned actor, John Abraham's dream home is one of the most beautiful properties. His sea-facing penthouse, Villa in the Sky, justifies its name. The 4,000-square-foot penthouse is located on the 7th and 8th floors of a residential complex in Bandra West.

John's home has been awarded the Best Home Award from the Indian Institute of Architectural Design in 2016. The house costs Rs. 60 crores and was designed by the actor's brother, Alan Abraham.
Bollywood actor, Hrithik Roshan's beach house, Paras, perfectly narrates his unique taste. The abode is interestingly painted in the hues of blue, which describes the personality of the three Roshan boys — Hrithik Roshan and his sons, Hrehaan and Hridhaan.
