  • Mahindra wanted to acquire this Thar for the company's auto museum
  • The Thar is right now at the Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai
  • Mahindra's automobile museum will come up at its Kandivali facility

It was exactly a year ago when Mahindra Group Chairman, Anand Mahindra, made a request on twitter to the producers of Rajinikanth's new movie, 'Kaala Karikaalan,' asking for the Thar used in the movie for the company's auto museum. Considering back then the movie was still under production, the film's producer Dhanush replied to Mahindra tweet's saying that he'll make sure the SUV reaches him once the movie is completed. Today, as the movie releases across India, Anand Mahindra has yet again come on twitter to announce that, staying true to his word, Dhanush has given Mahindra the Thar he had asked for.

The Mahindra Thar, used in the movie, is right now at the Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai. Along with the tweet Anand Mahindra has also posted a video of his team from Chennai striking the Kaala pose with the Thar, celebrating the Superstar fever, on the day of the Movie's release. So far, we have seen no reactions to Mahindra's tweet from the makers of the movie, which we expect will come in pretty soon.

If you remember, this is not the first time that Anand Mahindra has tried to acquire a special or unique Mahindra vehicle for the company's 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 bought the auto-rickshaw from him and in exchange gave the rickshaw driver a brand new four-wheeler - a Mahindra Supro mini truck for his business.


Mahindra and Mahindra's automobile museum is not open for public yet, and it will be coming up at its Kandivali facility.
