In their 20’s, most youngsters cannot claim that their life is sorted. Recently out of college, or pursuing a postgraduate degree, these young adults have yet to formulate a game plan for their life. With no clue as to what career they’d like to pursue or the kind of life they want to make for themselves, their future is fairly uncertain at this point of time.Therefore, when we see young Bollywood and Hollywood stars doing well for themselves and taking monumental decisions, like buying bachelor pads (read: super cool, luxe apartments) for themselves in a city like Mumbai, we begin to develop some serious life goals for ourselves.
Here are some of our favorite celebrities whose so called bachelor pads are fancier than any home we could dream of. It’s time to take some inspiration and up our game.
Deepika bought her first apartment (yes, first) when she was 26 years old. Located in Prabhadevi, close to the Siddhivinayak Temple, her posh 4-bedroom apartment cost her 16 crores, making it the most expensive property bought by a Bollywood actor back then. Phew!
If you thought Deepika Padukone’s achievement was impressive, turn to your new role model – Alia Bhatt. At the young age of 23, this petite actress has bought an apartment in Juhu. The 4-bedroom apartment, designed by Richa Bahl, has a surprisingly mature palette and is free of the bling you’d normally associate with a celebrity’s home. Go Alia, we’re really proud of you!
29-year old Varun Dhawan also joins this list of ambitious young actors who’ve decided to leave the nest and find a separate accommodation for himself. He’s bought a 4-bedroom plush apartment in Carter Road, Juhu, which will be designed by his mother, Lali Dhawan.
The stylish young Kapoor boy is always known to make a statement and the house that he’s bought recently does exactly that. In buying the 35-crore flat in Bandra, he’s made the biggest recorded transaction in the suburbs, that of Rs. 1.42 lakh per square feet! If that wasn’t enough to impress you, consider this – the house has been designed by none other than SRK’s wife Gauri Khan, and by all reports, she has done a fabulous job of it.
This cute-faced, straight shooter of an actress has bagged herself a gorgeous sea-facing apartment that capitalizes on the view by having glass doors and window panes. The 4-bedroom apartment has been converted into a 2-bedroom pad, with the other two rooms being used as an entertainment and make-up parlour.
The Grammy-winning pop princess moved into her gorgeous Tribeca penthouse in October 2014 and it has since been home to endless squad sleep-overs, dinner parties, and hang out sessions with her famous best friends. Swift picked up the enormous 7 bedroom, 5.5 bathroom apartment for a reported $20 million. She snagged the sweet digs from former owner, Oscar-winning director Peter Jackson.
