Richest Man In India Builds A $1 Billion Home!

mukesh-ambani-builds-a-billion-dollar-home-in-mumbai

Holy shit.

We guess when you're worth that much money, you have to really strive to find new ways to be excessive!

Check out (above) billionaire - and richest man in India - Mukesh Ambani's very modest and reasonably priced brand new house in Mumbai!

Yes. That's somebody's HOUSE.

We'll let you sit and process that for a minute.

The 27-floor property, which is allegedly worth $1,008,645,533 (£630m), has its own gym, health club, dance studio, ballroom, 50-seat cinema, elevated garden space with enough room for trees, THREE helicopter pads (because one just isn't enough!), and a staff of 600 people to keep it running smoothly!

Well, that should keep his wife and three children sufficiently entertained for the rest of their lives!

Just, wow. Outrageous.

They better throw one hell of a house-warming party, that's all we have to say!

Thoughts??

    Wow a billion dollar home ??, he better not move.



  2. 2

    Well let's hope he used better contractors, then those used at the Commonwealth Games! lol

    HAHAHHAA WTF!
    i heard 5 floors of that house/building are just for his cars!



  4. 4

    Ridiculous ..

    Taken from wikipedia: "The World Bank estimates that 456 million Indians (41.6% of the total Indian population) now live under the global poverty line of US$ 1.25 per day (PPP)."



  5. 5

    It's an ugly building. A scab on the skyline.



  6. 6

    Sadly, there's probably people looking out their window seeing that house wondering how they are going to feed their families for the day, or how they're going to pay their bills.



  7. 7

    holy crappers.



  8. 8

    While this man is surrounded by the poor and homeless in Mumbai, he needs a 1 billion dollar home. What a messed up world we live in…



  9. 9

    WTH!? Is he gonna live in that!?



  10. 10

    What a WONDERFUL use of the billion donated for the 2 million staving families that were flooded out of their villages and LOST EVERYTHING.

    VERY SICK MAN!



  11. 11

    Oh how sweet, did Big Poppa move back to his native land?

    Cake Much?

    WWW.BODYCAKE.COM



  12. 12

    Way too much. Tasteless.



  13. 13

    Just think of how many lives he could have saved with a billion dollars.. instead he built himself a minicity….



  14. 14

    WOW….I wonder if this is the most expensive private residence In the world?



  15. 15

    How environmentally friendly and economically sensitive!

    16

    at first I thought that was an unfinished sky scraper..its ugly from the outside..and he's a selfish prick if everyone around him is struggling to feed their families.



  17. 17

    I literally read about this on Stumble 6 - 8 months ago…



  18. 18

    Re: blahblah12 – Agreed!



  19. 19

    But is he happy?

    You can have the biggest house in Mumbai, but not have peace and a deep understanding of yourself and the world.

    Like Mel, everything goes to hell sooner or later.

    (so what, who cares!)



  20. 20

    Building a billion dollar house in India is like cooking a fancy 5 course dinner then throwing it directly into the trash.



  21. 21

    I'm sure there must be some extremely poor people in his country that don't even have food to eat. Couldn't he have spent a few hundred million to help his fellow countrymen.



  22. 22

    Hideous! He can't have possibly seen it, I mean would you pay £1 billion for a house that looks like that?



  23. 23

    That is disgusting - think of all the impoverished countrymen he could have helped with even HALF that home.



  24. 24

    does anybody know how the man made his fortune?



  25. 25

    Very selfish move. He could live in a $500 million home just fine. He could've donated the other $500 million to charities and causes and the homesless considering how many people in his country are poor and/or need help.



  26. 26

    Who designed that? Find them and kill them. I guess a billion dollars only gets you big, not elegant.



  27. 27

    i say if you have the money do what you want with it. and dont judge, he could have also donated a lot of money to charities.



  28. 28

    Disgusting considering the dire poverty in India right outside his front door.
    I have a very nice large home, and I don't begrudge anyone for having a nice home and nice cars etc, but this is really terrible.



  29. 29

    This is really depressing when there is so much poverty in India.



  30. 30

    this is NOT right. I understand people are rich BUT come the fuck on! Do you really need all of that? Seriously?! Do you know how many people need help in this world especially in 3rd world countries like India!! This is stupid and insane.



  31. 31

    Youre country lives in poverty and what do you do?You spend all of your money on yourself.selfish prick.



  32. 32

    I like it. it's interesting. Good for him. He created something interesting that now employs 600 people. He's helping the economy.



  33. 33

    Good for him. He worked to make his money and now he's spending it the way he wants to.



  34. 34

    I know he could have done better things with his money, but at least he is employing 600 people who may or may not have found a job otherwise.



  35. 35

    Fucktard would better build some small homes for all the poor people, the powerty in India is redic



  36. 36

    This guy is going strait to hell. Last I remember greed is a sin. He needs to pull his head out of his flaming curry ass and help his own people. It's just to disgusting to imagine that a human being can actully do this.



  37. 37

    I heard, the top floor is an ice room! It's full of ice and it even snows!



  38. 38

    Re: estebanito – Hey Moron, 1bill can employ thousand's, but i see like minded retards think alike…Thank god your not worth a penny who knows what you would have done with 1bill, RETARD GET A BRAIN!!

  39. @v@ says – reply to this


    39

    It appears excessive, but I guess all those levels are providing employment for quite a few people, so it's his money. Health club? Go for a walk in a green space. Weight work? Help a widow with yard work and groceries.

    Re: Eldridge Cleaver – You've GOT to be kidding. Go search for 'beauty of India' photos. That country has everything, plus it gave this man his billions. If he chooses to stay and repay the country that was so good to him with his loyalty, then that's something some other countries Offshore business people could take a page from.



  41. 41

    Thanks just horrible…



  42. 42

    I agree this is way over the top.. he spends money just because he has it.. BUT.. he's now put 1 billion into the economy. The more money people spend, the more money goes into the economy, the more people are hired, the more money people can earn.

  43. 7tizz says – reply to this


    43

    Man makes a huge eyesore in an eyesore of a country. How fitting.



  44. 44

    The building seems to not be finished yet, but by the looks of it… its like falling to a side… it wouldnt suprise me if one day just falls into pieces on its own lol



  45. 45

    That is gross. He should be trying to do some good in that city. People are living in filth…building that home is a insult.



  46. 46

    Greedy people all over the world, not just in America.



  47. 47

    THIS IS NOT A NEW HOME it's 4 years old - give or take- ….stop fucking copy/pasting shit off wiki and actually post some real news? this was in forbes magazine like 3-4 yrs ago ….and the owners are the worlds biggest douchebags. Go to forbes and read how much crap they have in their home ..and WHY it's worth 1 bill ….its rather sickening actually BUT THIS AINT NEW NEWS. …



  48. 48

    Congrats perez this news is like 4 yrs old you dick….the house was built years ago this is old news. leave your bedroom once in a while and you would be aware of this.



  49. 49

    Wow, all that for 5 frickin people!?!?!? It looks like a mini mall more than a house! They'll get lost in it. That is just TOO much room for one family! Just imagine how that money could've benefitted other families and communities. Just sickening.



  50. 50

    Re: estebanito – employ people to be his slaves so he can continue his cycle of oppression…



  51. 51

    It's hideously ugly. All that money and no taste…



  52. 52

    And yet, its ugly as sin, looks like an unfinished mess and will eventually be torn down as an eye sore.



  53. 53

    What a jerk. With such a large percentage of the population in India being poverty stricken, that guy is just sick to build such a monstrosity with all of the poor living on the streets there.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying he should be giving all his money away or anything, but geez what an excessive display of wealth.



  54. 54

    Re: 7tizz – hey jizzhead…..ur obviously a moron who's never traveled and is a close minded bigot. India is a beautiful country and will live on and prosper long after u die a pathetic meaningless lonely existence. Good luck.



  55. 55

    I don't think he's necessarily selfish for using his money to build his dream home, even if there are poor people around him. It IS his money, and how much he donates is really up to him.

    I am amazed at how unbelievably UGLY this building is, though. He couldn't spend a couple of extra million to make it attractive??



  56. 56

    Shotgun there's gonna be an earthquake in the future, that only ruins this house. How amazing.



  57. 57

    Wow, other than the Ryugyong Hotel that is the ugliest building I have ever seen. It looks haphazardly made and unfinished. No taste. Money can't buy that.



  58. 58

    Further evidence that India doesn't need U.S. out-sourced jobs OR any U.S. or U.N. "assistance" when and if a disaster hits their country. The nation of India should look to this guy for the FIRST billion dollars and then move on to any George Clooney telethon.

    Its disgusting and an insult to what was obviously wasted work of people like Mother Theresa over the decades.



  59. 59

    Home??????? More like a sore hunk of elephant shit piled high. I thought India is one of the most impoverished nations in the world, and with all the bells and whistles this real estate glutton has in his "home", the entire nation ought to be pissed!



  60. 60

    sad he couldn't use some of that money to help others in India. sure he probably deserves to have his own rewards, but still i hope he gives back.

    Jenga….Jenga….Jenga



  62. 62

    Why doesn't the asshole just give the money to the poor? WTF. What a complete fucking waste of money.



  63. 63

    Every single one of you who have commented saying that he is sick and should help society are complete dumbfucks! your all fucking hypocrites just cause you live on the other side of the world doesnt mean you cant help out, I DOUBT ANY OF YOU ARE HELPING THE POOR IN INDIA, NONE OF YOU! if youve got enough money to have a computer you have enough money to feed at least 4 families. SO UNTIL YOU DO HELP OUT SHUT THE FUCK UP AND DONT COMMENT ON WHAT OTHER PEOPLE DO with their money! Your all fuckin hypocrites, just cause you tell someone else to help the poor doesnt make you a good person, makes you a coward!



  64. 64

    How about donating some money to the poverty stricken nation he calls home? This makes me SICK.



  65. 65

    Even after spending a billion dollars he violated the first and foremost rule of real estate investing: location, location, location!



  66. 66

    thats obscene in a counrty so poor



  67. 67

    WASTE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WASTE. this is what is wrong with the world. waste of resources and brain power and talent and energy. think of all the good that could have been done with the resources that were wasted in the construction of this monstrosity.
    awful



  68. 68

    it's no taj mahal lol



  69. 69

    a 360˚view of the slums… o_Ó



  70. 70

    That was just utterly disgusting…what is wrong with people these days?…it makes no sense at all..no sense…I am completely disgusted my this display of wealth in a country that harbours so many dissunfortunate people…sorry



  71. 71

    With a Billion $, you could have created some truly magnificent architecture, but this is just horrible. Wonder what it looks like indoors?



  72. 72

    This didn't actually cost a $billion to build - that is what it is worth now, because of the rocketing prices. It cost about $80, which I agree is still ridiculous, but given that he can sell it as a fabulous hotel or something, a good investment. Personally, I'd have got myself something nice, and fed the hungry, but hey, we all have our own way of doing things…



  73. 73

    Ugly excess at its best….like living in an office building. The money could have been put to much better use.



  74. 74

    He's no better than some depraved and putrid piece of human garbage who would gorge himself on food while watching others starve.



  75. 75

    my house is way bigger



  76. 76

    Re: Jenna Watkins – a microcosm of the world we live in, america in a world full of poverty maybe?



  77. 77

    such a waste.



  78. 78

    OMG this guy like spent $1B of his dollars to like build this over the top superficial house when he could have like totally spent money on like the people in poverty in his country. We live in such a shitty world. And i'm not really one to talk cuz i dont really like give a fuck about the people in India, cuz like India is like "trash" (see Eldridge Cleaver's comment) but when someone decides to use their own money and they don't spend on the people around them like all of us, that's really sooo immoral.



  79. 79

    This would be more of a celebration and more fun if there wasn't such poverty in the world. I like the new CBA idea of ending poverty without spending a penny. Community Bank Accounts, there's a way to end poverty, but is there a will?



  80. 80

    Hold on people I agree myfirst reaction was the same thinking this douche is building a Billion Dollar Sky Scraper for himself and his family to live in with all the ammenites but what is he doing for Indian people? I'm going to hope that a person with this power and ability to spend has likely done loads for his fellow country men and am hopign this because he's building this giant home in the center of everything… I'm going to give him the benefit of the doubt and say he likely has alrady sent and helped millions of people around the country and city, hopefully… If not yeah he's a dick!



  81. 81

    Like, uh, Justin, like, mathews… You are a douchebag like really!!! You're saying the people of an entire nation are trash and you like speak like a 12 year old like valley girl!!!??? That's a joke if you could talk or write in a way one could get what you mean in more than three readings of your post I might consider you a person of education that gets the right to make a judgement call on a person and say they are trash… But you who wrote this blog in a way a 12 year old girl speaks thinking she's cool then insulting an entire nation and then admitting you hate the people around you? Wow? I bet you like watch Jersey like shore eh? Big Snooki fan? Sad really…



  82. 82

    So glad people have the LIBERTY to be wasteful in the face of the poverty of others.



  83. 83

    wow. instead of building a billion dollar home, why not just donate money to those who actually need it. selfish rich people…..

  84. @v@ says – reply to this


    84

    Uhm, India's economy is set to surpass the U.S.'s economy by 2030. Start helping your own.



  85. 85

    I traveled to India this summer and saw the extreme poverty. This is completely and totally disgusting. This man BUILT a skyscraper home for 5 people. We should be outraged by this…

  86. ozmed says – reply to this


    86

    Excessive and hideous. It doesn't even look structurally sound. This guy is the epitome of all that is wrong in this world.



  87. 87

    Kewl!
    Except it is UGLY!



  88. 88

    i really hope he donates some of all the money he has to the people living in slums in mumbai
