Anand Mahindra: “Drive Cars Other Than Mahindra?”

On Sunday, Anand Mahindra carried to Twitter to share a spectacular photograph of “one of India’s most daring mountain routes with 70 continuous hairpin turns”, located in Tamil Nadu.

“I like to find out who constructed this road, and then I will only rely on my Thar to take me on it!” he wrote, guiding to Mahindra & Mahindra’s off-road SUV. This vehicle has been glorified for its ability to negotiate rough terrain.

A Twitter user named Akshat Soni requested him if he drove cars other than Mahindra. “Sir do you drive cars other than Mahindra?” he penned on the microblogging forum.

In his trademark humorous style, Anand Mahindra replied: “You mean there are cars other than Mahindra?? I had no idea.”

“Just kidding,” he counted as a disclaimer, along with a smiley face emoji. His response has pulled up over 9,000 ‘likes’.

Norwegian diplomat Erik Solheim posted the “daring mountain road” concept and was widely shared on Twitter. Anand Mahindra is the chairperson of one of India’s most extensive vehicle manufacturers.

Does the head of one of India’s most extensive vehicle manufacturers drive cars not made by his own company? That is the query that a Twitter user recently requested Anand Mahindra, the chairman of Mahindra Group.

Another Twitter user said he lived close to the road and promised to give Mr. Mahindra “a lift” in his Thar. Here’s how the industrialist responded:

This is not the only time that Anand Mahindra has amused his fans with his witty replies. In 2019, when Mr. Mahindra shared a video of the luxury electric “hypercar” Battista, a Twitter user jokingly asked him about its mileage. “Sir, Kitna deti hai?” the Twitter user asked, earning a hilarious response from Anand Mahindra.
