Had a 220 km drive today for searching locations for future shooting. Landed up in Hari's farm. My mud sprayed Optra was lookin dull gray next to his shiny one. Started hunting location again taking his new baby. This is one from today's result. Congrats once again Hari.

Aaah!! The Rudra magic.

Well what can I say when the master himself offers to fulfill what is considered every TBhpian's dream.

Today I got a first hand experience of what it takes to take one snap over which we all drool, imagine my ecstasy when we did it over the whole day, I was really amazed at the intricacies involved in professional photography.
I can't thank you and Kiran enough for having chosen to click my car.

Some pics which I took during the course of the shoot.

Stunning! Like the twin tone combo and should be easier to maintain in BLR traffic than the all-black one.

Incidentally, has anyone tried removing the side-steps to see how the Safari then looks? I know saree-clad ladies and kids will need a kerb to climb in, but looks-wise? :-)

Congrats Hari! The car looks fantastic! Personally though, I like the full black option. But Rudraji's magic more than makes up for it!

Hari,

A big congrats to you on getting hold of your Safari!

It sure is a beauty. I really hope that you do not end up paint the cladding to black. Drive like this for some time, like a month or so, and then decide.

And why does the interior have a different shade of wood finish for you? Let me take a snap of mine and post it.

Congrats on the new buy Hari. The color combo (as mentioned before) is a killer.

With respect to painting the cladding black, I'd suggest keep it as is. If you do some off-roading, the current cladding color will take the scratches and lines from plants and thorns better than black.
