If you’re wondering if this billion dollar boudoir will set the couple back significantly. Well, Mr. Ambani is India’s second richest person with an estimated net worth of US$23.6 Billion (he falls behind the Li Ka-Shing who is worth US$24.8 Billion).
The house is a curious mark of conspicuous consumption in a city rife with poverty. But, Ambani’s bank account is a symbol of the global shift in wealth, with 2012 being the first year that the number of Asian Centa-millionaires (people with disposable assets of at least $100 Million) surpassed those in North America.
Is it time for #OccupyMumbai?
