Would you buy a gold mattress for the small price of Rs 27 lakh? On Saturday, actor Soha Ali Khan was in town to launch a luxury mattress by the brand Magniflex, that is lined with 22 carat gold yarn and costs that much, though the actor confessed that she herself can’t afford it.

This mattress is out of my budget but I would be really happy if someone gifted it to me, as I’m doing up my new house in Mumbai," said the 33-year-old. She added that if she could gift it to anyone, it would be to brother Saif Ali Khan. "I don’t know anyone who likes to sleep as much as him."

However, there are some who feel this is a new benchmark in luxury. "This could be a status symbol in the home decor segment," says Nitin Bhasin, 32. "We spend hours in bed, why not glam it up too," says Ashish Gupta, 26. "What’s the harm in indulging if someone can afford it?" says Riya De, 19.
