When we say music director Bappi Lahiri, many are reminded of his love for gold. Inspired by the musical genius at a very young age, a man from Pune decided to follow in his footsteps. Businessman Prashant Sapkal decided as a kid, after seeing Lahiri, he too will grow up to be successful, so that he can wear more gold than the music director. Now, it seems, Sapkal is living his childhood dream. He dons about 5 kgs of gold in various ornaments and other items every day. And the jewellery is worth a whopping Rs 1.5 crores.
In most of his images, he is seen wearing a heavy gold chain with a big pendent attached to it. While talking to Hindustan Times, Sapkal said that among all his gold items, this is the piece he adores the most.
Besides the chain, he is also seen wearing a bracelet and a kada, both made of gold and adorned with intricate designs. Sapkal’s love for the glittery metal doesn’t stop with jewellery pieces, he also carries an iPhone covered in gold casing.
He possesses a pair of shoes that is made of – yes, you guessed it right – gold.
