Janhvi Kapoor to Kriti Sanon, 7 Indians who cruise in posh Maybachs

From Bollywood celebrities and Telugu stars to global icons, here are 7 Maybach owners in India who cruise in absolute luxury.

In the luxury motoring department, there aren’t too many names that can compete with the panache of a Mercedes-Maybach. Delivering presidential-grade comfort and top-notch luxury trimmings, it’s no surprise that Bollywood celebrities and industrialists have a serious penchant for them. As the Maybach GLS 600, a top-of-the-line luxury SUV was unveiled earlier this year, more than 50 units (of the initial batch) out of 600 sold out before it even launched. And well, if you read the list below, you’ll know who’s partially responsible for this.
