Mumbai's most recognised
A short walk from Juhu Beach, on the busy VM Road junction, is a structure that makes pedestrians and vehicles slow down.
Visitors as well as locals alike wish they get a glance of its famous resident.
The large building, cream and brown in colour, looks unremarkable, surrounded by a tall fence and trees, and parts of it covered with white rainproof sheets.
Jalsa, Amitabh Bachchan's home and arguably Mumbai's most recognised address, screams exclusivity even as nearly a hundred people gather outside it every evening for a darshan of the megastar.
Recently, the Bachchans are learnt to have bought another house adjacent to Jalsa for Rs 50 crore.
