I think he now owns TLC,Passat,Fortuner,Pajero and 525d,don't know about any other cars other than scorcher mentioned

TLC was bought after selling Q7,its up for sale at Chirayath cars.

His white Laura and black Hyundai tuscon are sold,both these cars are quite often spotted in trivandrum

His Fortuner was not fortunate enough to get reg no.369 it is having reg no. 2007

Moving to another superstar Mohanlal,spotted his S class day before yesterday at Trivandrum

Some cars are meant to be driven by chauffeurs...can't expect a celeb to drive a Rolls!

Off Topic

The Spring Hotel belongs to Rajni ,it was earlier called as Arunachalla Inn

I know that he bought grey ikon in 2001 and i thought that he travels in his own amby and not taxi's

I think its interesting two know with which car the superstar started his
car collection.I think his first car was an Ambassador or Premier Padmini , obviously with Regn No.369. I had seen him in a contessa classic, regd as KCF 369,some 18 years back.

Mammootty's first car was a used Fiat which he had driven only two times. Then he bought a couple of Ambys followed by some Hondas and Toyotas in late 80s and early 90s. He bought his first BMW in 1992. Then came many high end SUVs like TLC, X5, Range Rover, Q7 and finally the new TLC. Most of his cars were 'first of its kind in Kerala'.

If I am not mistaken his first 1992 BMW was bought from the BMW dealer in Sharjah. At that time I was just passing by & surprisingly saw an RHD 3 series BMW in the showroom. On more enquiries the guy told me that I cant reveal the name but its specially ordered for one of the superstars of Malayalam movies.

This thread should be read Demi gods and their stars. I am a south indian born and brought up in Mumbai so I know how stars are treated in both parts. In Mumbai, have seen many stars but the folks (sensible ones) behave generally. Infact in upmarket South Mumbai, it would be demeaning for self, to stare at them. Yes, there are exceptional cases like Salman Khan and Amitabh Bachan. The stars too dress up pretty casually except for special events. Ive met Salman for work. He was dressed in a typical banian and rag jeans, very down to earth. Not professional though.
The scene down south is quite different I believe, but its because of the struggle it takes and host of other factors. The stars too are very particular for their appearance. My grandmom preffered south indian movies to hindi ones, according to her they had a good storyline.
