Actor Abhishek Bachchan is all set to return to the silver screen, after a long hiatus, with the movie Manmarziyaan, his first film since Housefull 3, which released over two years ago. With Junior Bachchan, who like his father is known for his love of exotic cars, set to grace movie theatres once again, let’s take a look inside his garage to find out what the scion of the Bachchan parivar likes to drive.
