Indian cricketer, Dinesh Karthik has had limited opportunities on the cricket field, but he has proved himself both behind the stumps and with the bat. Wicketkeeper and batsman, Karthik had made his debut in the Indian ODIs in the year 2004 at the young age of 19. His admirable performance had grabbed eyeballs, and his image has been carved in the minds of cricket aficionados since then. Currently, Dinesh Karthik is playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) and making his fans proud with his commendable performance.
Dinesh Karthik had got married to Indian squash player, Dipika Pallikal on August 18, 2015, in an intimate wedding ceremony in Chennai. The beautiful couple is blessed with two baby boys, Kabir Pallikal Karthik and Zian Pallikal Karthik. Apart from that, Dinesh and Dipika are also proud parents of their furry pet, Coco Chanel. And together, the family of 5 lives in a luxurious home in Chennai, Tamil Nadu.
Dinesh Karthik and Dipika Pallikal's home is a blend of modern textures and a mix of traditional elements. The couple has built their home piece-by-piece, and needless to say, it is a piece of art. From minimalistic interiors to exquisite decor pieces and comfy funiture to attractive art pieces, every corner of Dinesh and Dipika's home screams perfection. So, without further ado, let's take you on a virtual tour of the cricketer's splendid house.
Karthik's luxurious home boasts of a spacious living room, which receives ample natural light throughout the day. The area features dark-coloured sofas and armchairs placed around a wooden coffee table. Unique decor items and beautiful paintings add to the aesthetic of the overall space. However, the huge painting hanging right above the sofa is the most attractive element of the area, and it makes the space lively.
The lounge area at Karthik's house exudes cosy vibes, and it is the favourite spot for him and his wife, Dipika. After a long and hectic day, the couple loves to relax on the comfy couches and binge-watch. The area features a beige-coloured sofa and a large blue-coloured armchair along with two circular tables. The lounge area also has a large TV fixed on the wall opposite the sofa, and it is the perfect spot for the couple to chill and relax.
Though Karthik and Dipika are often busy with their practice sessions and tournaments, but whenever the couple is free, they mostly indulge in relaxing at home. While Karthik prefers to watch TV in the lounge area, on the other hand, Dipika entertains herself by playing video games all day long. Thus, Dipika sits comfortably in her bedroom and enjoys playing video games on the TV installed in the area. The couple's bedroom features a king-size bed, a wardrobe, and a cabinet placed opposite to the bed. The room features large glass panes, which keep the area well-lit.
The couple has an uncluttered kitchen, which is built around a long centre table and is well-equipped with all the necessary articles. Their kitchen is so spacious that it can easily seat 8-10 people at one go. The area features white cabinets, which perfectly complement the black granite slab and stove. One can also see a TV fixed on one of the walls of the kitchen so that Dipika and Coco can enjoy the matches while cooking. Moreover, the couple has 4 fridges in their kitchen, and even they are unsure about the usage of the same.
Though the couple's kitchen can accommodate around a dozen people, Dinesh and Dipika also have a spacious dining area in their home. The area features a large table with a granite top, and brown-cushioned chairs are placed around it. It also has two beautiful paintings, and a small table is placed next to the large glass windows. It also has some unique lights hanging from the ceiling, and it adds to the charm of the overall area.
Just like Karthik, his wife, Dipika is also a sportsperson, and thus, their house reflects their love for sports. The couple has a dedicated cabinet for their respective sports kits and other equipments. The large cabinet features separate spaces for both the players to keep their belongings. While the upper slab has Karthik's main cricket kit, the lower one has a kit for his gloves, pads, and other cricketing equipment. On the last slab, we can see a variety of sports shoes belonging to the cricketer.
Similarly, Dipika's cabinet features her racquets, sports kits, and other articles. She also has separate slabs for different things, and one can see that she has kept everything well-organised. However, the immediate attention grabbing element in the area was a pair of silver heels placed on the third slab of the cabinet. Interestingly, the luxurious heels were from the brand, Jimmy Choo, which was gifted to her by her loving husband, Dinesh.
Being an ardent sportsperson, Karthik and Dipika have a space in their home dedicated to the awards and accolades they have received for their immense contribution to the Indian sports over the years. From certificates to trophies and memorable photographs, the area sends chills down the spine of every aspiring sportsperson. Next to the area, one can see a beautiful painting hanging on one of the walls. Interestingly, Dipika's maternal grandmother had made the painting, and it is no less than a traditional treasure for the couple.
Did you know that Dinesh Karthik and Dipika Pallikal's house is next to the superstar, Rajinikanth's house? And needless to say, the palatial abode exudes exuberant vibes and makes for the most relaxing place for the couple to chill and destress themselves.
