Growing up, Kundra says, he had little pocket money.
"When I was in school I would sometimes wash the family car for which Dad would give me Euro 5," he says. Or he would volunteer to drop something off for his father.
"That's how I learnt the value of money," he says.
In this 20,000 sq ft house, he realises, he has to find a different way to teach his son Viaan the value of money.
The morality tale of his bus-conductor father and showroom-worker mother, afternoons spent in his mother's car outside the showroom - that is not at Kundra's disposal.
The fairytale has to be modified and retold.
