Bollywood stars and their love for luxury cars
In the last two months, there have been several new swanky additions to B-Town's garage
Success parties and holidays abroad are now passé. Bollywood seems to be on an automobile-buying spree to celebrate sweet success at the box office. And bigger the success, the luxury quotients of the cars too go up proportionately.
Close on the heels of his latest release Shootout At Wadala, we heard that John Abraham has gifted himself a spanking new Gallardo Lamborghini in black. And with Aashiqui 2 too raking in the moolah, the film’s lead Aditya Roy Kapoor has purchased a BMW 5 series. John’s set of wheels is estimated to be around Rs 3.5 crore.
An industry insider says, “Buying luxury cars to celebrate the success of films seems to be the latest fad in Bollywood. John even gifted Shootout director Sanjay Gupta a Yamaha V Max. While previously stars used to pamper themselves with international holidays or throwing lavish parties, this seems to be the new way of celebrating after a film’s release.”
It all started with director duo Abbas-Mustan’s Race 2, the biggest hit so far this year. Saif Ali Khan bought himself an Audi R-8 while its producers Ramesh and Kumar Taurani pampered themselves with A-8 Audi cars.
David Dhawan, who made a successful comeback with Chasme Buddoor, too didn’t waste much time before gifting himself an Audi Q-7.
