The snazzy host of Music Ka Maha Muqabala, Ayushmann Khurrana's home in Mumbai is as versatile as the actor himself.
Having experimented with everything possible on the screen, from being a Roadie (a reality TV show) winner to being an anchor, and an actor, Ayushmann believes in variety even when it comes to doing up his home. The multi-faceted boy takes us around his home and shares details on what's and how's of his home decor.
I live in the North Mumbai suburb of Malad on the Linking road. It is a very comfortable two-bedroom-hall-kitchen flat, which is big enough for a bachelor like me.
My building is part of a complex of buildings called Palm Spring. It is a very nice society, very clean. I love the place because it has got a gym, a swimming pool, a squash court, a table-tennis room etc.
Years gone by
I am originally a Delhi boy but I bought the place within two months of shifting to Mumbai some years back. I purchased this flat because the prices of property were cheaper in Malad than in Andheri, yet it did burn a big hole in my pocket.
During that phase, I was acting in daily soaps, working as an RJ and was also working for MTV… all at the same time. I would sleep for only four hours and that too in the car, while travelling from one place to other.
I have actually done nothing for the décor of this house. My father is an astrologer and he believes in and understands feng shui. When we were buying the house, one major requirement was that it should be feng shui compatible.
My father along with my brother decided each and every thing about the décor of the flat, right from the curtains to the sofas to the dining table to the colours painted on the walls.
My fav place
My favourite corner in the house is in the hall, right opposite the TV. This is the place where I sit and watch my TV, surf on my laptop and read novels.
My bedroom is very basic - just the bed and my wardrobe. Except my room, which has a tubelight the entire house has yellow light. My bedroom also has three photos of mine - earlier they were in the hall but someone said it was very exhibitionistic, so I moved them into my room. I think every creative person should have space, and my house has enough space for me to be myself. I don't know if I'm creative (laughs) but I need space and my house makes me happy because it affords me that space.
