Actor Janhvi Kapoor is the latest Bollywood celebrity to buy herself a new car. The actor was recently seen driving around in a new Mercedes Maybach but the vehicle also has an emotional connect -- it has the same registration number as Janhvi’s mom and late actor Sridevi’s Mercedes Benz S Class. Both the cars have 7666 as the last four digits of the registration number. Imgaes of Janhvi posing with and riding in her new car have surfaced online.

The registration number of Janhvi’s new car is MH 02 FG 7666 while the white Mercedes-Benz S-Class in which late actress Sridevi was often seen had similar digits in the registration number - MH 02 DZ 7666. Janhvi already owns an Audi A6 and a Mercedes-Benz GLS and has now invested in the brand-new sedan which costs around Rs 2-Rs 2.5 crore.
