Akshay Kumar: Prime Beach, Juhu
If you thought Airlift was inspiring, wait till you read the story behind Akshay Kumars Prime Beach house in Juhu. The story goes that when Akshay had just made his Bollywood debut, he approached photographer Jayesh Seth to work on his portfolio. As the actor did not have the money to pay for the photo shoot, he offered to work as Jayeshs assistant in return. The two chose a bungalow in Juhu for the shoot, but the constant noise annoyed the watchman who shooed them away. Years later, a superstar Akshay Kumar returned to buy the same plot of land! Rumour also has it that before they could run away, Akshay scribbled his name and number on one of the walls in the hope that a producer may see it and call him.

Besides being decorated by the same designers who worked at Saif Ali Khans house, you name it and the Prime Beach bungalow has it. From a cricket pitch to a swimming pool and well-equipped gyms, the bungalow is a home owners dream. Since Akshays wife Twinkle Khanna is also an interior designer, the aesthetics of the bungalow are a class apart. The rooms have the best lighting and furniture and offer a stunning view of the beach. Lush gardens on the property act as the perfect spot for Akshays parties.
Address: 203, A Wing, Prime Beach, Benzer, Andheri West
