it is unknown how Mavunkal managed to get the car
A car registered in Kareena Kapoor’s name was found in possession of a fake antique dealer.
The 2007 Porsche had been in the possession of Monson Mavunkal, aged 58, of Cherthala, Kerala.
Authorities seized it in 2020 and it has been kept at the police station premises ever since.
The car’s registration documents have now revealed that it was registered in the Bollywood actress’ name.
It also includes her address at Hill Road in the Bandra area of Mumbai.
Her father’s name, Randhir Kapoor, also appears in the appropriate column, according to News18.
However, it is unknown how Mavunkal managed to get the car without the ownership being transferred to him.
The Porsche is one of 20 luxury cars seized from Mavunkal after a legal battle between him and Sreevalsam Group.
This is not the first time that the 52-year-old has made headlines for conning public figures including top cops.
It is reported that his motive is to source cheap, local items and present them as antiques to the likes of celebrities.
Mavunkal has made several large claims in the past including that he has owned the silver pieces of Judas.
Historian Dr MG Sasibhooshan dismissed this and said:
“The silver coins featured in the photos belong to the Roman period.
“He convinced people by saying that it is the silver coins of Judas. It is a lie.”
The fake antique dealer also previously said that he owns the royal throne of Tipu Sultan, a historic Indian ruler.
He also claimed he had Rs. 2.6 Lakh Crores (£26 billion) stuck at a foreign bank due to bank rules.
Mavunkal was arrested in 2017 after a joint complaint from six people he allegedly defrauded of Rs. 10 Crore (£10 million).
It comes after a car once owned by Bollywood legend Amitabh Bachchan was also seized by the police in 2021.
The Rolls-Royce Phantom had been gifted to Bachchan by filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra and was sold in 2019.
It is thought that the actor sold it to Bengaluru-based businessman Yousuf Shariff, also known as Scrap Babu.
Upon investigation by the police, several irregularities were found in relation to the luxury vehicle worth £300,000.
This included the likes of no road tax, import duty, false registrations and forged documents.
It was also the case with 10 other cars in the capital city of Karnataka state.
Meanwhile, Kareena Kapoor Khan has several upcoming films after last starring in Angrezi Medium in 2020.
She will appear in the rom-com sequel Veere Ki Wedding 2, directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
She will also appear in Laal Singh Chaddha, the Hindi adaptation of Forrest Gump, which has been constantly postponed due to the pandemic but is currently set for release on Valentine’s Day 2022.
