Mannat — the almost unreal rendition of a quintessential palace, is surrounded with fans from all over the country, just to catch a fleeting glimpse of the nation's heartthrob, none other than Shah Rukh Khan.

Located in Lands End, Bandstand with a breathtaking view of the sea, the spectacular abode of one of the biggest celebs of the country is every bit luxurious as one could imagine it to be.

Interestingly, Mannat was not constructed at the lavish open space by SRK himself, it was indeed a legacy house that originally belonged to a Gujarati man, who was once SRK's neighbour. When Shah Rukh had his heart set on the house which was then called 'Villa Vienna', he decided to meet the then owner, Nariman Dubash. After a lot of persistent convincing, SRK managed to get the house for approx Rs. 13.32 cr at that time, a value which has now shot up to Rs. 200 cr!

Some interesting trivia on this magical home...

1. The REAL reason why Mannat was purchased

This may come as a surprise, but Shah Rukh wanted an exclusive prayer room, which is why he wanted to build a house on his own terms, the land of opportunities—Mumbai. He has even quoted that, "Even if I was broke one day, I would sell everything, but not Mannat."

The multi-storey ed building has two living rooms connected by a system of elevators, which is tastefully done up with paintings by M.F Hussain, antiques and other valuables. Not only that, the house has an entire floor dedicated to a playroom for his kids, a library, a private bar, and an entertainment centre!

5. The story behind the name 'Mannat'

When Shah Rukh was finally able to buy his dream house, Villa Vienna—he had thought of calling it Jannat. But, no sooner did he buy the house than all his wishes started coming true, and his career hit an all-time high. So he changed his mind, and ended up naming it—Mannat. Aww.

6. The number of people that the villa can actually host.

Average size of a house in a rural area is 494 sq.ft, which implies 103 sq.ft per person. For urban area, it is 504 sq. ft., which is 117 sq. ft. per person. If we calculate, approximately such 225 people can reside in Mannat alone! Talk about frustrated homeless dwellers.
