The luxurious lifestyle of the next Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Rishi Sunak, and his wife, Akshata Murthy

After Penny Mordaunt, the leader of the opposition Conservative Party, caved and pledged her complete support, Rishi Sunak on Monday became the first British prime minister of Indian heritage.

In only seven months, he will be the third prime minister of the UK. After winning the party’s primary elections and taking over for Boris Johnson on October 20, Liz Truss announced her resignation. She had only been in the office for 45 days.

The youngest and first black minister in the UK is Sunak. Here is a look at the extravagant lifestyle and peculiar family history of Indian-born Rishi Sunak.

The unusual family history of the UK’s next PM:

One of the wealthiest politicians in Britain, Sunak, is wed to Akshata Murty, a descendant of Infosys co-founder NR Narayana Murthy. Anoushka and Krishna, the couple’s two children, were born after their marriage in 2009.

Her millionaire father, Akshata Murty, the Indian wife of Britain’s prospective prime minister Rishi Sunak, is extraordinarily affluent. As the average person struggles with a cost of the living problem, her affluence has stirred criticism.

NR Sunak’s father-in-law Narayana Murthy co-founded the technology behemoth Infosys in 1981. The $75 billion outsourcing behemoth contributed to India being known as the “back office of the world.”

While this was going on, Sunak’s mother-in-law Sudha, the company’s first female engineer, complained via postcard to the chairman of Tata Motors about the policy that “female prospects do not need to apply.”

She is referred to as “India’s favorite grandma,” and in spite of her immense fortune, she has built 60,000 libraries and 16,000 baths. She is also a prolific author and a significant figure in social work.

Murty is wealthier than the late Queen Elizabeth II because of her ownership in Infosys, which is worth almost $700 million, according to the 2021 Sunday Times Rich List.

Rishi Sunak: one of the richest British politicians:

The 42-year-old also received tens of millions in dividends in recent years, but part of her money was exempt from British tax due to her “non-resident” status in the UK.

Murty said in April that she would pay UK tax on all of her international income in an effort to quell some of the ensuing public outrage that damaged her husband’s political standing.

He tweeted, “I do this because I want to, not because I have to follow the rules. “My choice will not alter the reality that India will always be my nation of birth, citizenship, and residence, along with that of my parents. I do, however, adore the UK.”

The couple, who are parents to two girls and a cute puppy, continue to be incredibly rich, and the British media has taken note of their opulent lifestyle at a time when the average person is having difficulty.

On August, they invested £400,000 in a pool for their estate. During a campaign visit in July, Sunak wore Prada loafers to a building site, according to the AFP news agency.

At least four houses are owned by Murty and Sunak, including a £7 million five-bedroom property in Kensington, London. Additionally, they live in Santa Monica, California.

She dabbled in banking and marketing before starting her own clothing line, Akshata Designs, in 2010.

According to a 2011 Vogue story, Murty works with artisans in far-flung communities to produce Indian-Western fusion attire that serves as “vehicles for exploring Indian culture.”

“I believe we live in a materialistic world,” she told the magazine. “People are becoming more conscious of their surroundings. Good deeds are in.”
