The $2 billion house

India's richest man, who is the fifth richest man in the world, Mukesh Ambani has built the most expensive house in the world in Mumbai, worth $2 billion. It is given the name Antila, after a mythical island. The whole structure is 27 stories high, contains a health club with a gym and a dance studio, a ballroom, guest rooms, a range of lounges and  a fifty seater cinema. They also have 600 servants to do all the chores. 

Mukesh's wife had a great idea of building a house like this when she was in new York, staying at the Mandarin Oriental. Nita Ambani was so impressed with the interior Asian style decoration that she wanted something similar for her to live in. I can't say that I am impressed with the exterior look of the building but the interior looks fantastic. However it makes you think...isn't a waste of money??
