Ranveer Singh, who will next be seen in Jayeshbhai Jordaar, has worked hard to make a mark in the industry. He is the finest actor this generation has seen and there are no two ways about it. He has a dreamy lifestyle with glam and his luxury cars. If anyone has followed his decade-long career, the actor has often purchased luxury cars and continues to add the newest collections to the garage.
“I was deeply in love with the Maruti 1000, I named her Prema” – Jayeshbhai Jordaar star Ranveer Singh recalls owing the iconic car
In a conversation with Top Gear magazine, Ranveer Singh spoke at length about his obsession with cars and why he loves to collect them. Going down memory lane, he recalled owning Maruti and what it meant at the time. “The trip down memory lane has to commence with the Premier Padmini. Premier Padmini is such a significantly big part of our lives as Indians, no wonder that it has garnered cult status. I remember my family had a Premier Padmini, and when Maruti joined hands with Suzuki, it kicked off a revolution. Maruti is such an integral part of our lives as Indians. I would even go to the extent of articulating that Maruti is a very intrinsic part of our Indian culture. Our extended family garage also had an Ambassador. One thing I must mention… I used to love the Contessa in those days. I always wished we had one, but that didn’t happen, but yeah, the way I used to fawn over that car,” he said.
Ranveer Singh further said he loves to name his cars, adding, “My nana had a 118NE and I have fond memories of that car too. Then Maruti came out with the Maruti 1000 and it was an epic car. Owning a Maruti 1000 at that time meant a great deal. And it was actually after many years after the release of the Maruti 1000 that my father bought it. It was our prized possession! I think that it is my most memorable car of all time. Eventually, the Maruti 1000 was handed down to me. In a way, that was my first car, and I even had a name for her. I have a name for all my cars. And I get a kick out of giving each car a super cringy and random name (laughs) And because I was deeply in love with the Maruti 1000, I named her Prema. (My Aston Martin is named ‘Ram Pyaari’, for example).”
“Moreover, my father loves cars and messing around with them. He’ll go out and procure some special steering wheel, some fancy rims, or a belter of a music system with an insane subwoofer, for instance …So 1000 was a totally souped-up, jazzed-out Maruti 1000. Yeah ‘one of those.’ (Laughs) In retrospect, I wouldn’t have given away that Maruti. I would have just kept it because I have so so much sentimental value attached to that vehicle,” he said.
Ranveer Singh will be seen in Jayeshbhai Jordaar, produced by Maneesh Sharma, and also stars Arjun Reddy fame Shalini Pandey, who debuts on Bollywood’s big screen opposite Ranveer.
