- Anand Mahindra, Executive Chairman Mahindra Group, is proud as Rajinikanth can be seen sitting on a Thar
- Dhanush has assured him that he will make sure the vehicle reaches him after they complete shooting with it.
- Anand believes that the Thar used for the photo-shoot has become an artefact of sorts that is worth preserving in the museum.
The jeep currently being used by Tamil 'superstar' Rajinikanth for his upcoming flick 'Kaala Karikalan' would find its way to an auto museum proposed to be set up by diversified business conglomerate Mahindra Group, in Mumbai.
The 67-year-old actor is currently in Mumbai shooting for the film Kaala Karikalan (Kaala), produced by Wunderbar Films, promoted by the Rajinikanth's son-in-law Dhanush. The film's title and the first photographs were recently shared by Dhanush on social networking sites.
In one of the pictures, Rajinikanth is seen casually dressed sporting a sunglass and sitting on top of a Mahindra Thar jeep. Mahindra Group Chairman, Anand Mahindra and a prominent industrialist, in a tweet, expressed his desire to use the car in the proposed auto museum to be set up by the Group.
"When the legend @superstarrajini uses a car as a throne, it becomes a legend..#Thar," Mahindra said in a series of tweets."Whoever knows the whereabouts of the #Thar used for this shoot please let us know.. I'd like to acquire it for our company auto museum," he said.
Responding to the tweet by Mahindra, Dhanush said he would ensure that the car reaches him upon completion of the film shoot.
"Thank you so much, sir!!! The vehicle is being used by the 'superstar' for shoot currently. Once completed will ensure it reaches you:)" Dhanush tweeted. Reacting to the Dhanush's tweet, Mahindra said, "Fantastic.. Or maybe I should say-Wunderbar! Appreciate the response @dhanushkraja Good luck to you and the team."
To a query made by a follower, Mahindra said the museum concept was being planned, and cars were curated. "It's being planned. Cars being curated. Will most be in Kandivli, Mumbai", Mahindra said.
On the comments made by a follower that the photograph might be photoshopped, Mahindra said, "The car that was photoshopped is still a collector's item!."
