While Range Rover's are popular these days in Bollywood, lets not forget the sheer number of Maybachs that these celebrities have picked up.

Looks like Big B has picked up a Mercedes Benz V Class.

What would be a typical deal? 20% off on the ex-showroom? Or even higher? Because even a layman can easily get 10% off on many luxury cars.

Not sure of the specifics but it is often a barter done by the dealership and not always the brand. While the brand might have a support discount to be given specially for bollywood celebs, I don't think they give cars free that often unless its a brand ambassador. Whereas dealership often do barters wherein they ask the star to open their new showroom etc and pay them with a car instead.

One such example that comes to my mind is Salman Khan got a X6 from a BMW dealer in Gujarat when he attended the showroom opening.

I believe "subtle" promotion on social media is one form of reward as well. Are you on Instagram? I haven't seen it in the immediate past but a very common post by a lot of celebs (the ladies especially) was to post pictures with/in/of their cars.

Case in point:

I guess Vidya Balan too picked up an E class for herself or her parents.

Mercedes has some serious fan following in India. I guess she is a returning customer.

Might I make a prediction - Not sure when the Q8 will hit the Indian shores, but if/when it does, I have a hunch that the Q8 will quickly join the list of these cars, where Bollywood will flock to buy it

On a side note, what a gorgeous looking car the Q8 is. My neighbour has one and the sound it makes is eargasmic!

. Would like to add that the ugly BMW X7 and classy new Mercedes GLS will also join the film star club, simply because of how big & imposing their personality is. They scream power + money.

! I don't even know who Rhea Chakraborty is, but will say that the Compass is an excellent car for upcoming stars. Good looking, sexy Jeep brand and (relatively) affordable.

Rapper Badshah picks up a Rolls Royce Wraith! Nice choice I must say but very unlike of him. The colour also seems to be too bland for someone like him so I'm guessing it's pre-owned.
