All about Amitabh Bachchan's four bungalows
Jalsa: The iconic Jalsa, which is located in Juhu, was gifted to Amitabh Bachchan by director Ramesh Sippy as remuneration for acting in his movie, Satte Pe Satta. Jalsa is the current residence of the Bachchan family. It is believed to have a living area of 10,125 sq ft. The first movie shot in the premises of Jalsa was Anurag Kashyap's short film titled Murabba in Bombay Talkies. However, the interiors were not captured in the movie.
Prateeksha is the first house that Amitabh Bachchan bought. It is located just 1 km away from Jalsa. This bungalow holds a special place in Big B's heart as he had grown up in this house with his parents Dr. Harivansh Rai Bachchan and Teji Bachchan. In fact, Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan's marriage was also held in Prateeksha.
Janak is Amitabh Bachchan's office. The Bachchan family also use the gym at Janak on a regular basis.
