Jeep Africa’s statement which they shared with the press back on 13th November, 2017. “Actor Saif Ali Khan was at the Landmark Jeep Showroom today in Worli to take delivery of his brand new Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT. Saif is a big fan of the brand having grown up with the Willys Jeep that his family owned. The keys of the SRT were handed over by Mr. Kevin Flynn – President and Managing Director, FCA Africa.”
Could this mean that Jeep Africa has gifted him the flagship Jeep as a brand promotion deal. Or did Saif has taken the car on lease from FCA Africa?
