In the month of March, the Forbes 2017 Billionaires list placed Mukesh Ambani, India’s richest man at the 33rd spot with a net worth of $23.2 Billion. In the same list, Shahid Khan, Pakistan’s richest man, grabbed the 149th spot with a net worth of $8.9 Billion.
Unlike Mukesh Ambani, who inherited his big wealth from his father late Dhiru Bhai Ambani, Khan has rags to riches story and now he is one of the most successful businessmen of America. He moved to the United States at the age of 16 – once worked as a dishwater at a restaurant in Illinois – but now he is the owner of Jacksonville Jaguars, which he bought in 2002 for $770 million.
Here’s a huge difference in lifestyle of two of the most successful businessmen from Asia.
1- Their luxurious living abodes:
There is no denying that there is a huge difference between the net worth of Mukesh Ambani and Shahid Khan. So, it’s obvious that there will be a vast difference between the lifestyle of the two. Shahid Khan owns the most luxurious car in the world. Apart from this, he has got an apartment on the 61st floor of Park Tower that gives him a 360-degree panoramic view of Chicagoland. Undoubtedly, Mukesh Ambani got an upper hand in this one as Shahid’s house is nowhere near Antilia in the terms of luxuriousness.
2- Cars and yacht
Mukesh Ambani has a great collection of luxurious cars, ranging from Mercedes Benz S Class to a Maybach 62. He also owns BMW 760 Li, Maybach 62, Rolls Royce, Aston Martin Rapide, and the list goes on.
On the contrary, Shahid Khan doesn’t have a huge collection of luxury cars, though some news portals claim that he owns a Lamborghini Veneno. But Khan has his own super luxury yacht named ‘Kismet’, which is 308-feet long and boasts of six bedrooms, three decks and a private sundeck with a pool Jacuzzi-BBQ area. It is worth €70 Million and is currently docked in Miami.
According to a few reports, Ambani has also ordered a yacht which is presently under construction. Its cost is rumoured to be around €70 Million and it will be shaped in form of a horseshoe.
3- Private Jet
Ambani is the proud owner of the most luxurious and expensive private jet, a Boeing Business Jet 2. The jet houses a boardroom, plush executive seats and the cockpit is equipped with the state of the art Honeywell digital avionics system. Its total worth is approximate $73 Million.
Khan also owns a private jet, N612FG jet, which often travels between Chicago and the United Kingdom, where his football club Fulham.
So, these were some of the lavish things these two Asia’s richest men possess with pride. Undoubtedly, Ambani enjoys the more luxuries in his life, but we simply can’t overlook Khan’s struggles in his life that led him so far.
