The Gupta family has drawn more media attention following reports of a R448 million mansion in Dubai.
According to sources who have spoken to the City Press, the family recently purchased the villa L35 in Emirates Hills – a prestigious gated community located in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
The home features 10 bedrooms, 13 bathrooms, nine reception rooms, a double grand staircase, a hand-painted dome, parking space for 11 cars, and chandeliers in almost every room.
When asked for comment, family spokesman Gary Naidoo told City Press, “We find it astounding that at a time when 7,500 Oakbay [Investments] jobs are at risk, the media continue to take great interest in the whereabouts of the Gupta family … Let us be crystal clear here. We will not be providing a running commentary on the private life of the Gupta family. They, like any other family, have a right to privacy and a family life. We ask you to respect these rights.”
