Imran Khan is set to make his official entry in to the elite Ferrari owners’ club today. And what’s interesting is that the first person to get a ride in his expensive machine is likely to be his Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu co-star, Kareena Kapoor.
The actor’s wife Avantika might miss the chance as the car is arriving at a time when Imran will be busy amidst the film’s several promotional activities. Since he is short on time, he will probably have no choice but to pick up the car in the middle of the day. And Bebo, by default, will be with him. “I will be taking the delivery of the car today and I am very excited to finally lay my hands on my own Ferrari,” says the Delhi Belly actor.
Earlier, Imran had planned to have the car delivered on February 14, after the release of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu on February 10.
“But since, the new schedule of his next film, Vishal Bhardwaj’s Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola starts on February 11 itself, it will leave him with no time. And he wants to focus all his attention on Vishal’s film once it starts rolling,” says a source close to the actor.
Imran, who interestingly is the youngest actor and only Khan to own a Ferrari in Bollywood, has already declared that it is his gift to himself after back-to-back successes like Delhi Belly and Mere Brother Ki Dulhan. Besides having a few hits, 2011 was also special for Imran as he got married to his childhood sweetheart, Avantika Malik, on January 10.
The actor’s dream vehicle — the latest model of the luxury Italian automobile brand is owned by the likes of singer-actor Justin Timberlake and Hollywood star Hugh Grant. It comes with a heavy price tag of approximately R4 crore. Besides Imran, Sanjay Dutt is also among the few in Bollywood to own a Ferrari.
