The supercar is the first of its kind in India
Kartik Aaryan continues to bask in the success of Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 and producer Bhushan Kumar has rewarded the actor by gifting him a McLaren GT.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 was released in May 2022 and was a huge success, bringing audiences back to cinemas.
The comedy-horror surpassed Rs. 180 Crore (£18.6 million) and continues to increase.
It is currently the second highest-grossing Hindi film of 2022 after The Kashmir Files.
Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 has since been released on Netflix and continues to attract audiences.
Following the film’s success, producer Bhushan Kumar has gifted his lead actor with a McLaren GT.
The supercar is the first of its kind in India and it is reported to cost Rs. 3.73 Crore (£387,000).
The McLaren has a much higher price than the £165,000 pricetag in other countries due to it being brought in through the Completely Built Unit (CBU) route.
CBU refers to several imported cars and bikes which are directly bought in ready shape for sale. The whole car has to be booked and an order has to be placed for a customer to buy it.
This means vehicles are taxed more than their original cost.
Despite the price, the McLaren GT is cheaper than other models.
The McLaren GT is powered by a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine and produces 611 bhp. It goes from 0 to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds.
It has a top speed of 203 mph.
In addition to his new McLaren GT, Kartik has several other lavish motors in his collection, including a Lamborghini Urus Capsule Edition, Porsche 718 Boxster, MINI Cooper S Convertible and a BMW 5 Series.
Kartik and Bhushan have collaborated on numerous projects, dating back to 2018 with Sonu Ke Titu Ki Sweety.
The pair will partner again for Shehzada, another anticipated film.
Audiences will also be treated to more such announcements in the coming few days.
Bhushan Kumar, Chairman and Managing Director of T-Series, said:
“The dynamic, vivacious energy of Kartik Aaryan is infectious.”
“We align creatively well and the bond that started on a very professional note definitely has now grown multifold in multiple collaborations we’ve done.
“His dedication to each project is commendable, this sports car is a token of appreciation for his hard work and grit.
“We instil confidence in him, and we aim to strengthen this collaboration in the future.”
Meanwhile, Bhool Bhulaiyaa 2 continues to do well at the box office.
Its fifth week started off well and may end on a high note depending on how Jugjugg Jeeyo fairs at the box office.
