Amitabh Bachchan is the unstoppable Shahenshah of Bollywood and hence because of him, his bungalows have serve as a place of trip for all Amitabh’s buffs and well-wishers as well as for the curious souls who want to learn about his residence. Amitabh Bachchan has a total of 5 Bungalows. All of them are situated in Juhu, Mumbai.
‘Pratiksha’ was the first bungalow of the Bachchans. Amitabh used to reside there with his parents, Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan with wife Jaya Bachan and children Shweta, and Abhishek Bachchan, for about 40 years. They later shifted together to ‘Jalsa.’
‘Jalsa’ means celebration, and reportedly this iconic bungalow is gifted to Bachan’s by director Ramesh Sippy after Amitabh Bachan worked with him in ‘Satte pe Satta’ in 1982.
Jalsa is an enormous 10,125 sq ft dual storied glamorous bungalow. The bungalow was initially under the name of Amitabh’s brother, Ajitabh Bachchan‘s wife, Ramola Bachchan. According to sources, this was performed for tax-related problems. In 2006 Jalsa was enrolled under Jaya Bachchan’s name.
On each Sunday sunset at around 6 pm, Amitabh Bachan meets the fans who assemble outside his bungalow, so to grab a glimpse of the legend. This has now become a tradition for Bachan’s devotees, and occasionally other family members also joins him.
