Ali Fazal reveals his shocking experience while visiting Shah Rukh Khan’s Mannat for the first time


In a recent interview with Mashable, Ali Fazal recounted his hard times and explained how every time he used to visit the Bandstand, the actor would feel the urge to enter the recognizable bungalow Mannat at least once in his lifetime. It was only recently, though, that Ali was able to seize the rare opportunity because so few individuals had the chance to enter the estate. He said: “When I used to go to Bandstand, I would feel bad because Shah Rukh Khan lives there and we used to feel that now we have come till here, let’s go inside and see.”

Furthermore, Ali talked about his experience at the Mannat home of Shah Rukh Khan and Gauri Khan. Ali first entered their home after Gauri asked him to watch a movie showing. The Fukrey actor also recalled being astonished by both the mansion’s grandeur and its modesty. He also appreciated SRK for making him feel modest. Ali referred to it as the Gulliver’s Travels and continued: 

“But I visited Mannat when Gauri (Khan) ma’am invited me to a couple of screenings. I remember the first time I visited Mannat I was in shock. The house is big but the things in that house are also big. Humbleness ki dukaan hai woh. It’s like Gulliver’s Travels, you feel very small in that house. But Shah Rukh is one of the best hosts.”

Shah Rukh Khan once revealed how he and Gauri Khan were out of money after purchasing Mannat

Shah Rukh Khan recently attended the My Life in Design book launch party for Gauri Khan’s latest coffee table book. He talked about their early days and their acquisition of Mannat during the course of the gathering. The actor described how, after finally succeeding in purchasing the property, they ran out of money. As a result, the actor had no choice but to ask his wife to begin designing their home. And so, Mannat became Gauri’s first design undertaking. SRK stated:

“We didn’t have too much money, and as soon as we mustered up some money, we said we wanted to buy this bungalow. And it was way beyond our means. We managed to buy it, which was one thing, and then we had to rebuild it, because it was quite dilapidated. And then we didn’t have money to furnish it. Of course, we called a designer. The lunch that he served us telling us how he’ll design the house was way more than the salary I used to earn in a month.”
