There was no response from the House of Abhinandan Lodha.

Earlier, Amitabh Bachchan had bought a land parcel from the same builder in Ayodhya in its project The Sarayu which is a 7-star mixed-use enclave coming up in the temple town. Real estate industry sources had said that the plot where Bachchan intends to build a home measured around 10,000 square feet and was valued at 14.5 crore.

Alibaug has, of late, emerged as a preferred real estate destination for high-net-worth individuals (HNIs) seeking luxury retreats and investment opportunities. Its proximity to Mumbai, coupled with well-developed infrastructure and coastal landscape, has fueled a surge in demand for premium properties in recent years.

In 2023, actor Amitabh Bachchan and his wife, Jaya Bachchan, had bequeathed Pratiksha bungalow, the first of the five family homes in Juhu, to their 49-year-old daughter Shweta Nanda as a gift.

The other properties that Amitabh Bachchan’s family owns in Juhu include Janak bungalow which is used more as an office, two other bungalows Vatsa and Ammu, part of which was leased to Citibank, and re-leased to State Bank of India in 2021.

In 2021, Bachchan also sold the Sopaan bungalow in Gulmohar Park in New Delhi for 23 crore to Avni Bader, CEO of Nezone group of companies. The 2.100 square feet house was registered in Teji Bachchan’s name and his parents lived in this house before they moved to Pratiksha.
