If there is one vehicle that has always remained a top favorite among Bollywood personalities, it has to be the evergreen Mercedes-Benz G-Class, popularly known as G-Wagen. The old-school luxury off-roader has found its home in various Bollywood celebrity garages in the past, including those of Ranbir Kapoor and Jimmy Shergill. However, in the past two years, a few other Bollywood celebrities have added the Mercedes-Benz G-Class to their car collections with the arrival of its all-new version in the Indian car market.
The details of the new Bollywood celebrities who have recently added the Mercedes-Benz G-Class are shown in a YouTube video by “Cars For You”.
Rohit Shetty, Director
Starting with the list, the first is prominent Bollywood director Rohit Shetty renowned for his Singham and Golmaal series of movies. His upcoming movies are Golmaal Five and Singham Again. The wealthy director has added a white-colored Mercedes-AMG G 63 to his collection. Shetty, who also owns a few other high-end cars like the Lamborghini Urus, Land Rover Range Rover, and Ford Mustang GT, is often spotted driving his G-Wagen himself.
Parmish Verma, singer
Even personalities from the music industry are smitten by the charm of the Mercedes-Benz G-Class. We have famous Punjabi singer, rapper and actor Parmish Verma who bought a G-Wagen for his car collection. He may not be too familiar to those outside Punjab and North India, but some of you may remember the attack on him by a gangster who shit him in 2018. Parmish’s Mercedes AMG G-63 is in black colour. His other vehicles include trusty Toyota Fortuner SUV and the very capable Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.
Last year, Badshah too added a G-Wagen to his garage. Like Parmish Verma, he too has a black AMG G-63 SUV. Badshah is arguably one of the most famous singers and rappers in India, and has always loved high-end cars. His other cars include a very famous Rolls Royce Wraith that he never drives, a couple of Lamborghini Urus super luxury SUVs and a BMW 640d plus several other high-end cars.

Ahmed Khan’s most famous car though is a custom-made Batmobile that he bought and gifted his wife.
