Veteran actor, Dharmendra, posted a video of the black Fiat he bought as his first vehicle. He paid Rs 18,000 for it many decades ago.
On Twitter, Dharmendra posted a video showing him standing next to his car and saying, ‘Hi friends, my first car. I bought it for Rs 18,000 only. In those days, Rs 18,000 was a great thing. I have kept it nicely. Looks good? Pray for it, it should always be with me.’ ‘Friends, Fiat, my first car, my beloved baby… Very close to my heart. His great blessings in the life of a struggler,’ he wrote in the caption.
Dharmendra previously described himself as an ’emotional fool’ in an interview with Hindustan Times.’I’ve been emotional enough to keep my first car, a Fiat… because of the fear that if I have nothing someday, I can convert it into a taxi!’, he said.
