Stumbled upon this. John Abraham talks about his and Bips's Q7s, his RD, R1 and Sierra also. (start from 0:50)

Wasn't there an article in Bombay Times with Akshay Khanna and his Reva where he spoke about how much he cared for the environment.

I have seen himesh's black 7 series, he often visits his friend that lives in Anu Maliks building and parks it right near Anu's 5 series...the war of the music directors

Bappi Lahiri having a 7, i'm not sure about... i associate him with only one car- the sera !

Btw, John mentioned that bips now has a Q7 but she also just got an A6.

Hey Gogi Bhai, i have just picked up this Holden Monaro (Prem Nath's car). The car is in running condition. The Transmission is not fine but the guy said he'd fix it before he delivers the car. can you give me more info on this car.

Thanks

This car was junk and to my eyes finished and not worth restoring fro the price he was re selling it at.

One thing I am noticing is that there doesn't seem to be much of a hierarchy in terms of car buying among Bollywood starts.

You would expect small timers like Bhappi Lahari or Bipasha to drive a 30-50 lakh car considering that high rollers like SRK and Hirthik drive 7er and S class. But pretty much everyone small or big seems to have cars that cost in the 70-80 lakh range.

Never seen him with the Reva. That could be just a publicity stunt for some cause or promotion. He is seen at the club only in his 740 li, no other car.

I read that Ajay Devgun uses a SWIFT for all the in-city travel.

Bipasha isn't a small timer anymore. She charges around 1-1.5 crore for one performance.

Talking of Bikes, here's a very interesting customised one owned by a certain actor. Any guesses which bike is this?
