The popular Indian off-road SUV, Mahindra Thar, will be seen in Superstar Rajinikanth's upcoming movie - 'Kaala Karikaalan'. In fact, the movie poster, which shows Rajinikanth sitting on the hood of the Mahindra Thar, caught the eye of Anand Mahindra, the Executive Chairman of Mahindra Group. Recently, he tweeted the movie poster asking the makers of the movie whether he could acquire this Thar for the company's auto museum. The production house - Wunderbar Films, tweeted back showing interest in taking things forward, and soon actor Dhanush, who is the producer of the movie, officially confirmed that Mahindra could have the Thar once they are done with the shooting.
It all started earlier on the 29th of May 2017 when Anand Mahindra tweeted the poster saying - "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".
The movie's production house - Wunderbar Films, replied back to his tweet asking whom to contact to take the matter ahead. In fact, the tweet has already gained quite a bit of attention on Twitter from both Rajinikanth and Mahindra's fans alike.
On the very same day, Anand Mahindra had posted another tweet complimenting the Superstar, saying - " When the legend Superstar Rajini uses a car as a throne, it becomes a legend...#Thar".
Later on the same day, Dhanush replied to this tweet saying - "Thank you so much sir !!! The vehicle is being used by superstar for shoot currently. Once completed will ensure it reaches you :)" - confirming that Mahindra could have the Thar used in the movie.
Thank you so much sir !!! The vehicle is being used by superstar for shoot currently. Once completed will ensure it reaches you :) https://t.co/iuxBBlFYP0— Dhanush (@dhanushkraja) May 29, 2017
Following this, Anand Mahindra replied to Dhanush's tweet thanking him for his confirmation and prompt response. In fact, he also wished him and the team of Kaala Karikaalan good luck for the movie's success.
This is not the first time that Anand Mahindra has tried to acquire a special or unique vehicle for the Mahindra Auto Museum. Last time Anand Mahindra donned the hat of a curator was when he found out about a Kerala-based rickshaw driver who had modified his vehicle to look like a Mahindra Scorpio from the rear. Mahindra tracked down this person and bought the auto-rickshaw from him in exchange for a new four-wheeler - a Mahindra Supro mini truck.
We sure keep wondering whether Mahindra might show some similar gesture towards the production house or our superstar himself after the deal is done.
