Even Bollywood Stars have to suffer parking problems in this mega city .

Quote:
Deepika Padukone had moved into her Prabhadevi residence in 2011 from a cosier place in Pali Hill. Now, Mirror has learnt that the actress is at loggerheads with the society members of her former residence over parking space, which is allotted through a lottery system, ever since it was rented out to tenants in 2014. The society has already handed over her space to another resident, contending that the actress’s occupancy expired when her flat was empty for eight months between two tenants.

Lots of swirls and scratches expected on the hood, specially by that heel.

+1. The exact same thought came to my mind when I saw this picture. Clearly she bought the brand and not the machine, although that's completely her decision. I doubt other than a handful of celebrities, most are in the market only for the bling with no real interest in the car itself.

It is surprising how many of us had the same thought pop up in our mind on seeing that heel on the hood! Let's be glad she did not pony up for an AMG to avoid any blasphemy.

Thatís quite judgmental. Letís just look up to the fact that she has made it to buying a three pointer star on her own at quite a young age.

Also, I donít think itís that pose is that big a deal, it could have been done without damaging the paint.

I think most Indians buy these brands for the bling so why hate on the stars for being the same? Iím pretty sure comfort and safety are equally a priority.

Nail, Head, Bam! It is not inherited money - the fact that she earned it makes a huge difference.

You have misunderstood me. I wish her all the success in her career. And I agree that its the rule rather than the exception that most people buy these cars for the brand. But since this thread is on celebrities, hence the reference to them.

+1. Also I envy her in a way because she doesn't care much about swirls or small scratches here and there, which if we look is must for everyone who stays in India. She'll have more peace of mind in the longer run.

I think someone lifted and placed her on the car bonnet or she wore that stiletto after climbing - just for the photo shoot.

This might be the wrong thread to post but still posting here as it involves a bollywood actress.

Sunny Leone has bought a limited edition Maserati Ghibli Nerissimo in USA. This is a limited edition (450 units only) and is sold only in US and Canada. The car gets a all black exterior and interior finish. Each Ghibli Nerissimo will have a badge located on the centre console highlighting that it is one of only 450 units produced.

It is priced at $80,000 in US while the Indian price is 1.36 crore (ex-showroom).

Pics :

1. Droolworthy!

She most definitely did because Maserati sent a hilarious press release ("the Maserati Ghibli Nerissimo isnít just black, itís extremely black" ). Could be a fat discount or just free use for a couple of months.

Posting the press release here verbatim:

Quote:
Mumbai, October 11, 2017: Swanky, luxurious and glamorous Ė words that define the Trident and Celebrities! Arjun Kapoor gifted himself the yet to be launched Maserati Levante SUV on his birthday, Sushant Singh Rajput bought himself a brand new Maserati Quattroporte, Hritik owns a Maserati Spyder and Ajay Devgan is a proud owner of one of the first Quattroporteís in India.

Latest addition to this list is Sunny Leone. Her recent picture on Instagram posing next to the Maserati Ghibli ďNerissimoĒ has got her fans go gaga! So whatís so cool about the Maserati Ghibli ďNerissimoĒ edition anyway? Letís find out. The Maserati Ghibli Nerissimo isnít just black, itís extremely black. Akin to its exterior, the Nerissimoís interior is a sanctum to darkness. Exclusive to its truest sense, only 450 editions of Maserati Ghibli Nerissimo are available worldwide. Each Nerissimo model comes with a badge signifying the particular model number out of the 450 models produced.

So, if you were wondering what Sunny means by "1 of 450" in her Instagram caption, you know it now. Sunny is also a proud owner of the Maserati Quattroporte gifted by husband.
