The new Mercedes-Benz GLS has become a common option for many celebrities in Bollywood. Now Anil Kapoor has gifted one to his wife Sunita Kapoor. The brand-new Mercedes-Benz GLS was parked in the home and a lot of paparazzi gathered to get a view of the vehicle and click pictures of the car.
Anil Kapoor shared an emotional note on Instagram for his wife too. He said “To the love of my life, @kapoor.sunita From travelling in 3rd class train compartments to local buses to rickshaws to kali peeli taxis; from flying economy to business to first-class; from roughing it out in small dingy hotels in villages like Karaikudi down South to staying in a tent in Leh Ladakh…We have done it all with a smile on our faces and love in our hearts. These are just some of the million reasons I love you…You are the reason behind my smile and you are why our journey together has been so happy and fulfilled. I feel blessed to have you as my soul mate and partner for life, today, every day and forever …Happy Birthday…Love You Always.”
