Riteish Could Be Second Indian to Own Tesla X, Thanks to Genelia
If you were to receive only one gift on your birthday, who would you like its giver to be? Let it be Genelia DSouza Deshmukh. If Riteish Deshmukh were to be believed, his wife knows how to make a 40-year-old feel like a 20-year-old. On his birthday, a few days ago, the actor tweeted a picture with a Tesla Model X electric SUV, thanking his wife.
The luxury car boasts of gull-wing style rear doors that open upwards, called Falcon Wing doors. With a seating capacity of seven people, the car has a range of 470 Kms on a single charge and costs about Rs 55 lakhs (excluding the import fee).
According to reports, a blue Tesla model X was imported by Greenwich Meridian Logistics in Mumbai. Apparently, Tesla has allowed Indians to book the Model 3 but gave no timeline of its arrival in the country.
But we may also be reading too much into the picture. She may have merely gifted him a test drive. In case the former hypothesis is true, he may be the second Indian owner of the coveted electric SUV?
Going by Riteish’s glee, he must believe, ‘Bayko ho to aisi!’
