Amitabh Bachchan sells the Rolls Royce Phantom that Vidhu Vinod Chopra gifted him
Amitabh Bachchan’s performance in the 2007 film Eklavya: The Royal Guard was widely appreciated. Director Vidhu Vinod Chopra was so impressed with Big B’s performance that he bought the superstar a Rolls Royce Phantom. Now, a report has emerged that Bachchan has sold his prized possession to a Mysore-based businessman. The luxury vehicle is valued at a staggering Rs 3.5 crore and was once a part of Amitabh’s garage. According to reports, the actor currently owns a Mercedez S-Class, a Range Rover, a Bentley GT and a Lexus SUV.
Big B was recently on the silver screen for his work in Thugs of Hindostan, where he starred along with Katrina Kaif and Aamir Khan. With a budget of Rs 250 crore, Thugs of Hindostan was dubbed as the most expensive Bollywood film ever but had a poor show at the box office. It reportedly made Rs 300 crore globally. Bachchan will be next seen in Badla, directed by Sujoy Ghosh. The film stars Taapsee Pannu – who Bachchan had previously worked with her in Pink.
Besides Badla, the senior Bachchan has two other films in line. He will be working on Nagraj Manjule’s Jhund and Ayan Mukerji’s Brahmastra. The Rolls Royce Phantom VI was reportedly launched in 2003. The vehicle was discontinued since 2017.
