Bollywood actor Kartik Aaryan has become the first Indian owner of the stylish McLaren GT. The car, costing approximately Rs 4.7 crore, was gifted to him by producer Bhushan Kumar following the success of their recent collaboration Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2. The film earned Rs 184.32 crore in India. Even on Thursday, its 35th day, the film managed to make a business of Rs 51 lakhs.
Kartik shared a couple of photos where he is seen posing next to his new car. “Chino khaane ke liye nayi table gift mil gayi 🍜🚗 Mehnat ka phal meetha hota hai suna tha..Itna bada hoga nahi pata tha ❤️ 1st McLaren Gt from India Agla gift Private jet sir 😂 #Gratitude 🙏🏻 📸- @prathameshb84 @ tiles .kudtarkar @bombaytimes,” Kartik wrote alongside the photos.

They are now looking forward to the release of Shehzada, which also stars Kriti Sanon in the lead role. The tagline of the film reads: ‘Duniya ka Sabse Gareeb Prince (The World’s Poorest Prince)’. It is said to be a remake of Allu Arjun’s hit Ala Vaikunthapurramuloo.
In addition to Shehzada, Bhushan hopes to announce a new movie with Kartik.
With McLaren GT, Kartik Aaryan now owns three luxury cars. Last year, the actor bought Lamborghini Urus worth Rs 4.5 crore. He also owns a dark green Mini Cooper.
