Humble cars of Bollywood: Nana Patekar's Mahindra Jeep to Aamir Khan's Toyota Fortuner
While we have seen the glamorous lifestyle of many Bollywood celebrities, there are many who live a rather toned-down life. Many B-Towners own the swankiest set of wheels but there are others who have humble, regular cars that are used by common people. Which are these actors and which vehicles do they drive? Let's find out.
Mahindra Jeep CJ4
Nana Patekar is a renowned actor in Bollywood. Patekar is a humble person and stays off the camera during social events. Apart from his regular cars, Patekar also owns a Mahindra CJ4A. The CJ4A is quite versatile and had an extended wheelbase. The car shared the engine with CJ3B, which is a 22.-litre petrol engine developing around 72 Bhp and 154 Nm. It gets a three-speed transmission and 4-wheel drive system.
Marui Suzuki Gypsy
John is an avid lover of automobiles. His personal car and bike collection include vehicles, such as the Nissan GT-R. Being an enthusiast himself, John also owns a Maruti Gypsy. The actor has been spotted in his white coloured Gypsy King quite a few times and has kept the off-roader in stock condition. The Gypsy is the most affordable 4X4 vehicle that you can buy in India and is widely used by the Indian Army.
Mahindra Scorpio Getaway
Gul Panag loves expeditions and is a known car enthusiast too. She often rides motorcycles on her adventures and also has a heavily modified Mahindra Scorpio Getaway in her garage. Modified by Jaskirat Nagra of Sarbloh Motors, the Scorpio gets many additions like a rooftop tent, a chemical toilet, a winch on the front modified bumper and so on.
Aamir Khan is known for being extremely choosy when it comes to his movies. He is also known as a perfectionist and owns a fleet of luxury cars including the Bentley Continental GT and Mercedes-Benz S-Guard. Aamir owns a few humble cars like a Mahindra XUV 500 and a Toyota Fortuner. The new-gen Fortuner is not used much by Aamir when he goes to events but he sure uses it when he wants to be discreet.
The young rising actress Disha Patani owns a set of very humble cars, both sedans from D-segment. She is mostly seen in the Cruze when she's not driving. She seems to like the Honda a bit more and drives around in it most of the time. Disha has been spotted driving around in her white Honda Civic quite often too.
Jackie Shroff is a big BMW fan and even owns an M5. However, the actor also owns a couple of humble cars including the good-old Toyota Innova and Toyota Fortuner. Jackie has been spotted in the tried-and-tested MUV quite regularly and he often drives the car himself. Toyota Innova is known for its comfortable ride and bullet-proof reliability.
Bipasha Basu moves around in an old-gen Toyota Fortuner. The humble Toyota Fortuner is the largest selling car in the segment and it can serve the owner for a long time without developing problems. Bipasha and her husband Karan Grover have been spotted in the white Fortuner quite often. Bipasha's Fortuner is the 3.0-litre diesel version that gets a full-time AWD system.
Dino Morea did well in Bollywood, in his time, but then slowly disappeared from the silver screen. Dino loves biking and owns quite a few two-wheelers. However, whenever he needs a car, he uses the old-generation Ford Endeavour. Dino has been spotted driving the true blue American SUV himself quite a lot. He also owns a Range Rover.
Malaika Arora Khan
Toyota Innova Crysta
Malaika Arora Khan is a fashion diva and roams around in extremely luxurious vehicles including a Range Rover Vogue. She also owns a humble Innova Crysta and has been spotted with the car on more than one occasion. She owns the petrol automatic version, which is smoother than the diesel version and feels more comfortable.
Tata Safari Storme
The Safari Storme was gifted to Anil Kapoor by Tata Motors to promote a TV show. Anil does not use the SUV much, but it is the only humble ride in his garage. The Tata Safari Storme uses a 2.2-litre Varicor turbo-diesel engine that generates a maximum power of 148 Bhp and 320 Nm. There's also a more powerful version of the Storme in the market.
