You are absolutely right. Mercs are not at all popular but I didn't know about the superstition part.

Right now BMW seems to be the top favourite (also note BMWs are made in TN)

Nope,the S class doesnt belong to the producer.

But the Prado which turned into a Scorpio during the action sequence belongs to the director of Shivaji

I dont think it is a Second buy, he said he waited a lot to get the regn number and the car was bought due to his wifes insistence. He is mostly spotted in the spotless white ambassador !

@mods- I second hani, the video should be removed !

Buddy, are you referring to W210 E-class with TVM regn no: Z 1? (don't know whether he bought another E-class!). He himself stated that he bought it 2nd hand in one of the first issues of malayalam auto mag Fastrack. Even his Sera was a used one. The Amby's his 1st car and it was black when he bought it.

Both of them doesn't have any desire for cars. Yesudas was gifted a Rolls Royce by someone couple of years back. It was some old model and the car is still in Mumbai. Chitra had a Lancer and now owns a Verna.

One day in air port I saw a fleet of Mercs (including S and E) , They all were to recive Yesudas and some other guests , On the next day news papers reported that Yesudas attened a Celibrity marrige (ex-minister son) some where in Northern Kerala.

It seems a lot has changed since the early Eighties, when it was possible to glimpse Mohanlal getting around Trivandrum on a bicycle. And not as part of a film shoot either!
