In which movie U saw it? What was the colour? If its grey, then it'll be Kel__'s car, he used to give his most cars for cine-shooting. I've seen his 7 is Dileep's movie 'Chakara Muthu', Lexus in Mohanlal's movie (dont remember the name) & some one told me that his earlier S was also there in some movie.

Mohanlal has ordered a M-class for him, but not yet took the delivery.

I dont care who's car it is, but how do they allow a car with Dubai plates to run on the roads here in India? For starters, the original Dubai plates have to be returned (or removed, if you've bought the number) when the car is exported, replaced instead by BLUE Export Plates.

This chap has probably put his dubai plates back on here in Kerala. Cheap show-off!
