While we have featured cars owned by many actors from Bollywood and other film industries on our website in the past, there is one actor who has always remained hidden from plain sight: Jackie Shroff. He is one of those actors who has great taste when it comes to cars and bikes, often seen commuting in regular cars for work. Many people don’t know that he owns some of the rarest cars in India, and among them is the Lotus Esprit Turbo. Recently, the actor was spotted in an Isuzu V-Cross lifestyle pickup truck.
The video has been uploaded by “Cars For You” on their YouTube channel. In this video, the vlogger shows an Isuzu V-Cross arriving at a film set in Andheri, with Jackie Shroff stepping out of the vehicle. This is probably the first time we have seen an actor arriving at a film set in a truck like this. He gets out with a small potted plant in his hand, speaks to the photographers as usual, poses for pictures, and even interacts with his fans before walking into the caravan to begin work.
The video doesn’t provide a detailed view of the Isuzu V-Cross. We looked up the registration number online and found that the V-Cross belongs to Jackie Shroff. It’s not a new vehicle; in fact, this is the pre-facelift version that the actor bought back in 2017. Dual-cab lifestyle pickup trucks never really captured buyers’ attention in India. Even before Isuzu, we had the Tata Xenon and Mahindra Scorpio Getaway, both of which didn’t perform well and were discontinued from the market. However, things changed with the arrival of the Isuzu V-Cross. It quickly gained popularity among buyers and is now a common sight in many 4×4 communities.
Internationally, Isuzu is offering the next generation of the V-Cross, but unfortunately, India is only getting the facelifted model. The V-Cross seen in the video doesn’t look stock. It’s evident that aftermarket alloy wheels have been added, and the rear is actually closed. We aren’t sure if this is the 4×4 version or not. Apart from the wheels and the closed rear, everything else seems to be stock on this pickup truck. Besides Jackie Shroff, Bollywood actor John Abraham also owns an Isuzu V-Cross with a decent number of modifications. The price for the current version of Isuzu V-Cross starts at Rs 23 lakh, x-showroom, and goes up to Rs 27 lakh, ex-showroom.
Turning our attention back to Jackie Shroff, the actor is also seen arriving at sets in his Toyota Innova. Last December, he was spotted at actor Anil Kapoor’s birthday party, leaving in a British Green Jaguar XKR coupe. In addition to these, he owns cars like the BMW M5, a vintage Jaguar SS100, and another classic car in his garage: a Pontiac Firebird that he restored himself. Further vehicles in his collection include a Bentley Continental GT, a fully restored 1968 model Fiat 1100 sedan, a Toyota Fortuner, a Royal Enfield Continental GT 650, and a custom-made Royal Enfield motorcycle inspired by Ghost Rider’s bike.
