Actor Juhi Chalwa stole millions of hearts with Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak in 1988. The superstar of the ’90s has acted in some of the iconic films like Ishq, Darr, Hum Hain Rahi Pyar Ke, and more. In 1996 she married businessman and art collector, Jay Mehta, owner of the Mehta Group. The couple live in a beautiful house in Mumbai.
The opulent home in Mumbai’s Malabar Hill is an architectural masterpiece. The muti-storey ancestral home owned by millionaire businessman Jay Mehta is an amalgamation of artwork, modern design, and traditional Indian interiors.

Chawla’s home has various aesthetically pleasing spots. However, the all-white marble foundation and a carved stone wall, is a beauty that takes you back to the era of royal India.
As Mehta is an art collector, his house is filled with classic art pieces giving an alluring characteristic to the home. The house has various statement doors with wooden carving, gold finish and brass work.
The couple’s adobe is a template of Indian craftsmanship. Be it the local Indian art hanging on the wall, detailed wooden pillar or sculptured walls, the interior of the house is a testament to how tastefully the place has been done.
Recently, Jay Mehta also got an empty terrace on the tenth floor of his house renovated. For the face-lift of the terrace area, Mehta reached out to Sri Lankan architect and chairman of the Geoffrey Bawa Trust, Channa Daswatte. The two have worked together on various projects in Uganda and India. Mehta’s terrace gives a magnificent view of Back Bay, Marine Drive, green lush patch and Arabian sea.
“I don’t have to explain anything to him; he really understands my way of life,” Mehta told Architectural Digest. The design of the terrace also includes a 2,200-square-feet, air-conditioned room that could open up to the outdoor area.
Talking about his interest in design he said, “My godmother, Terry Reynolds, was dean of the Parsons School of Design and she exposed me to the artistic side of New York. She would take me to wine-tasting courses, museums, to the Philharmonic and the theatre and I saw a whole new side of life.”
“Simple with really nice materials” Mehta describes the aesthetic, per AD.
