On February 26, Anand Mahindra had expressed his desire to acquire the Rhythm House and to make a concerted attempt to bring it back to its glory.
It is noteworthy that Mumbai's Rhythm House is one of the Nirav Modi properties that have been seized by the Enforcement Directorate (ED).
Rhythm House, a brick and mortar music store was shut in 2016 because of declining sales as increasingly, its loyal customers shifted to online shopping. It is one of the landmarks of crescent shaped art district in downtown Mumbai.
"If the ED is going to eventually auction Rhythm House, how about a bunch of us in Mumbai collectively acquiring it, restoring it & turning it into a performance venue for Rising musicians & a hangout for music lovers? Happy to be part of such a band," said Anand Mahindra had tweeted on Monday.
