I really am not sure Shiva. My guess is their movie was so succesful that buying a Range Rover to gift it to someone isnt a big deal. Tax or no Tax. Some nice discount would be availed I'm sure. Anything for a celeb!

LOL its interesting how the word Gifted is thrown around in Bollywood with regard to someone getting a new ride. Even buying for self is called gifting himself/herself

Isnt it a bit too much for an bollywood actor to spend 10cr on a car? And is the cost high coz of the dollar to rupee conversation or do armored vehicles cost so much. 8 crores over and above the regular S class is a bit too much.

Apparently, SRK is pictured with his beemer with the tagline "his new Bomb proof car", today's TOI online.

Has he already got the "S" guard or getting the BMW ?

Well the two big guns of Bollywood are apparently under constant threat from the underworld. I guess it is justified that they protect themselves.

The price of the car doesnt sound justifiable but the materials used in the vehicle to shield the occupants from bomb/gun attacks should be worth it. Apparently they can handle small grenade explosions as well. So why not!

I saw this too, apparently Gauri's vehicle had a few bullet shots on it during the recent gun attack outside SRK's house. I think the pictures showed the 650i on the TOI website.

British-Punjabi artiste Manj Muzik's Mansory Merc SLS AMG somewhere abroad.
Wonder why Mansory ruined such a beautiful car. The headlamps are straight out of a Ferrari 599.

EDIT - Doesnt belong to the artiste but to a Swiss collector of Mansory cars.

I wonder what's the point in spending insane amount of money on buying a S Guard if he's using an Ecosport for his personal use!
