12 Times People Were So Obsessed With Gold, They Even Made Bappi Lahiri Look Poor

All that glitters is not gold.

These loony people have dared to prove it wrong.

Everybody accuses good ol Bappi Da for committing tacky gold crimes. But once you see what these guys have done, you’ll stop pointing fingers at poor Bappi. I meant that literally.

1. Datta ‘Gold Man’ Phuge – The businessman with a 3.5kg gold shirt worth Rs 1.42 crore

For this businessman from Pune, everything that glitters has to be gold. 15 goldsmiths worked 16 hours a day for 20 days, hammering 140,000 small pieces of gold, fastened with red Swarovsky crystals, to make Phuge’s dream come true.

And then he dresses it up with 7 kgs of gold accessories.

Just a shirt, are you kidding me?

He would settle for nothing less than a 24k gold suhaag raat worth Rs 3.6 crore

His bride was golden, inside out.

2. Indian politician, Pankaj Parakh, gifts himself a gold shirt worth Rs 1.4 crores on his birthday

A year after Phuge’s gold shirt painted the Internet gold, a National Congress member from Maharashtra ordered a similar monstrosity. ” My family is hardly impressed or interested in my love for gold. They just ignore and accept it as a part of domestic life. But the rest of my extended family thinks I am weird ,” Parakh told reporters. We wonder why.
