Intending to spend a good amount of his savings on wealth, Ambani decided to purchase land at one of the most expensive streets of Mumbai. The construction of Antilia started, with the dream to make a family home where he can stay with his wife, three children as well as 600 staff members.

Apart from them, 600 employees are employed to keep this expensive construction in order. Two stories are allotted for health centers. Family members reside at the top six floors of this massive creation.

Concept of Vastu science applied at Antilia:

In a nation like India at the time of constructing a residential property or even commercial building, the application of Vastu science is considered a must for the wellbeing of the residents. Vastu gives a clear directional concept that can bring good luck to the residents of that house. But as per the famous Vastu expert, Mr. Bassant R Rasiwasi the building is not having enough windows or open space in the east. Hence the members of the family are not able to get enough morning light. Such blockage can create confusion and several unwanted issues between the members. This position can lead to immense hard work to gain moderate achievement. But what we can see that the Ambani’s achieved immense success in whatever business they pursue.


The house of the richest man in India is not free of controversy and celebrity status always comes with controversy and its common. It is believed that the plot was sold to Mr. Ambani at a very low cost than its actual market value and it was sold by a Muslim Charitable Trust. Well, the spokesperson of Mr. Mukesh Ambani has denied the allegations mentioning that he gets hold of this plot in an auction. Whatever be the case, India is proud to have a business tycoon like Mukesh Ambani.
