Shah Rukh Khan gifted Salman Khan a luxury car (latest Mercedes-Benz) as a token of gratitude for doing a cameo in his upcoming Aanand L Rai directed (dwarf) film.
“When Salman Khan came to shoot for the song, Shah Rukh surprised him by gifting him a brand new, luxurious car. The car is newly launched and no one owns this mean machine currently. Salman was shocked as he wasn’t expecting this at all. But because he had managed his dates and agreed to shoot for the song on such a short notice, SRK wanted to gift him something to show his love and appreciation.”
Salman Khan did take the car around for a spin, and was accompanied by (rumoured) girlfriend Iulia Vantur and his Dabangg co-star Sonakshi Sinha.
The car is powered by a 3-litre BiTurbo V6 engine under the hood, and is capable of producing a maximum of 362 bhp and developing a peak torque of 520 Nm. Itfeatures a 9-speed automatic gearbox. The car is estimated to cost Rs.90 lakh in the Indian market.
However, a source close to Salman rubbishes it, “It’s absolutely untrue. Salman and Shah Rukh share a bond where they don’t need to do such gestures. Also, Salman will never accept such a gift for doing a cameo and same goes for SRK.”
The new Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe however is still unregistered and was seen sporting TC number plates, which indicates that the model may have been gifted.
