Shah Rukh Khan's bungalow, Mannat, on Bandstand in Bandra, Mumbai, is a landmark in the city. Whenever you pass his heritage bungalow, you will see hordes of people trying to catch a glimpse of the actor, which is next to impossible, given its high walls.
If that isn't enough, SRK's new office space for his company Red Chillies Entertainment, on 15th Cross Road in Khar, is a traffic-stopper, with him rising out of the walls of the building in his G.One superhero avatar from his upcoming film, Ra.One. Interestingly, the film is titled Ra.One, the antagonist, played by Arjun Rampal; SRK plays G.One, the superhero. You cannot help but notice the entire building space comprising 40,000 square feet, covered in the film's posters on the relatively quiet Ram Krishna Mission Marg area.
A tad narcissistic, but then SRK is not known to do anything in small measures. With SRK, just an office is not enough – an entire building is what he needs! He had purchased the land in 2008 and construction work has been going on in full-swing since. Finally, his dream office has taken shape. The plot of land was popularly known as Watch Tower in the area as it housed a ground and a two-storey prayer hall with a watchtower earlier. SRK is set to move into his swank, new office around Diwali when it will be ready to welcome the King and his court.
