Movie stars lead the property sales in Mumbai
Movies have always been the trend setters for fashions, housing and popular merchandise. Whether it is apparels, cosmetics or sundries the star appeal of Bollywood actors is used off and on to capture the imagination of the masses. Whether it is Hritik Roshan endorsing a laptop or Aishwarya Rai promoting cosmetics, the icons of the tinsel towns have long remained trend setters.
This year, the movie stars have embarked on a personal venture which has come to limelight. There is a rush to acquire prime real estate in Mumbai. According to a recent news piece, Abhishek Bachan is the latest in the line of actors who has purchased a prime accommodation in the city. The actor is said to have bought a luxury apartment in an upcoming residential project in Worli. The cost of this apartment has been estimated at over Rs. 40 crores.
This deal perhaps has the highest cost among other purchases of actors who have bought properties for their personal use. There are others who are also known to have invested in development of apartments in Mumbai and house for rent in bangalore.
Leading the Way
It is said that movies are the mirrors of society. Bollywood stars merely accentuate trends which are already in place. With these purchases, they have exhibited the lifestyle of a star and set the standards for the masses. The localities and the buildings where they reside automatically gain prominence by covert advertising. In many ways, the masses vie to lead the lifestyle of super stars and hence try and push their budgets to accommodate properties which are considered to be at par or comparable with homes of movie stars.
There is a trend of purchase of luxury apartments in Mumbai. Last year, Donald Trump made his presence felt when he inaugurated the first Trump Tower in the country. Since then, there are numerous other builders who have taken up the charge to develop luxury flats for sale in Mumbai and elsewhere in the country. The property purchased by Abhishek Bachan is in one of such projects.
