Rumor has it this mansion was built for Shah Rukh Khan, and now it’s for sale
We realtors hear a lot of interesting tales of provenance and could not resist sharing a bit of this mansion’s storied past. Rumor has it 9034 Bronson Drive in Potomac, MD was designed for Shah Rukh Kahn by the original builder, Vijay Taneja. This isn’t confirmed, but it’s been whispered.
Why do we think this chatter is worth mentioning? Consider this …
Taneja was a prominent Bollywood producer in the Washington DC area, and brought numerous Bollywood stars to the United States for American tours, including SRK, Aishwarya Rai and Himesh Reshammiya.
Evidence lays within the fantastic Bollywood theater on the lower level of the home. All around the room are posters of Bollywood’s most celebrated figures. Any home built for SRK would certainly require a state of the art home theater.
This, in combination with the 8 huge bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, a 3 story elevator, home gym, spa, sauna, and so much more – points to intentions of being built with a celebrity in mind.
Note the grand entrance with an impressive double staircase and vaulted ceilings.
This sitting room has a gold leaf ceiling with exquisite details.
A home gym with enough space for a private trainer.
Nothing says luxury like an in-house sauna.
Colorful landscaping and a plethora of fountains greet guests upon their arrival.
From it’s lux materials and ornate finishes, we agree, this house is fit for a star!
