Shah Rukh Khan’s villa K-93 located at the far end of the Al Khasab Cove on the K Frond of the Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.
This villa was given to the the Bollywood star (not bought by SRK) by the developers of the project ‘Nakheel’ in 2007, as they wanted to have a Bollywood celebrity resident at the Palm Jumeirah.

Just checkout his villa in the video below; he’s also got access to a big part of the beach.
Numerology at Work?
Grapevine has it that the actor chose the villa on the K Frond, not just because it’s home to the country’s rich and famous, but because it has a numerological connection as well.
K, as all his fans know, is the initial by which he’s famously known: King Khan. The number of the villa, 93, when added up, totals 12, the sum of all the letters in Shah Rukh Khan’s name.
Can Gift Be Taxed?
Though Khan maintains that the villa was a gift from ‘Nakheel’ and not income from business or profession, Indian tax authorities had served a notice to SRK saying that the villa received by Khan “under the guise of a gift” is “actually a consideration in return for lending his name to promote the company”.
However, ‘Nakheel’ have submitted a letter to the IT department saying that Khan had not provided them with any professional services.
Perfect Retreat for Friends & Family
Shahrukh Khan visits Dubai once every year to spend quality time with his family at the Palm villa.
Besides, whenever he’s in Dubai for shoots/promotion, the K-93 villa becomes a party hot-spot for his friends who also happen to be in the city around that time.
