As the celebrations from the wedding wind down, the focus is now towards multi-million dollar mansion that Isha Ambani, the daughter of India’s richest man, will move into with husband Anand Piramal. The 50,000 square-foot mansion, which stands in the locality of Worli in South Mumbai and has sweeping views of the Arabian Sea and the Sea-Link bridge, is still a step down for the bride, given her father’s home is more than eight times that size. Isha’s father is Mukesh Ambani, a telecom and petroleum magnate whose net worth is pegged at $43 billion, and whose 27-floor, 400,000 square-foot Tetris- tower-like residence is a prominent structure on the Mumbai skyline.
After the wedding, Indian media reported that Isha, 27 and Anand, 33, would move into Gulita, a 50,000 sq. ft mansion that the groom’s parents gave them as a wedding present. The Piramals, who have interests in real estate and pharma,bought the property, previously owned by Hindustan Unilever, at a reported price of $62 million in 2012.
Marked by a glass façade and three glazed steel structures, Gulita has seen hectic remodelling work in the months leading up to the wedding. The largest of the steel structures is 11 metres tall and it was constructed using 3D modelling tools, according to Eckersley OCallaghan, a London-based architecture firm that handled the project. The Mumbai Mirror newspaper reported that the house has three basements, multiple dining rooms and an outdoor pool. Many in India, have followed the wedding, for its dazzling display of wealth and influence.
