Kapil sharma today owns several properties in Mumbai as well as in Amritsar. However, his prized possession is his SUV ‘Range Rover Evoque’. After all, its the most expensive car tat he has ever owned. The SUV is estimated to cost between 70 to 90 lakh rupees.
Well, not bad for the lad from Amritsar who landed in Mumbai with almost nothing.
