As per the instructions i shall keep the off topic discussion as over. My uncle has rented the first floor, so entire building does belong to them. The cayenne S grey colour stands inside the building.

Saifs car was up for sale and this i can confirm as i was offered the car for 70 odd lakhs. I do not know if he has had a mind change. The reason given to me was that he found it inconvinient to drive the car in the city. I personally feel the conversion was not done properly and hence the quick sale.

If that's what the superstition is all about, then please take note that the media has been scrutinising Rani for not having a single movie offer outside the YRF camp and saying that her career is on a major downswing after a series of box-office flops. The media can make or break you whenever it likes.

Its new tradition now to gift Mercedes in Bollywood. Lata Mangeshkar was gifted a E class by YRF. Farah Khan was gifted a S 350 by Sharukh Khan. So the Superstition is broken and they are returning to the lure of the three pointed star.
This car is a S 350 with the Panoramic roof. These are fully optional so you can customise it to your taste and needs. I wonder with the kind of money these people earn why dont they just by the S 500 or 600 instead of the S350.
