From owning an Audi Q-7 to an Innova, TMKOC’s Dilip Joshi has a swanky car collection in his garage. The actor became a household name for playing the role of Jethalal.
TV actor Dilip Joshi may have worked in several noteworthy films and shows in the past but the way his performance is applauded in Taarak Mehta Ka Ooltah Chashmah, is unmissable. The actor, who started his career with Salman Khan’s film Maine Pyar Kiya in 1989 alongside Bhagyashee, played the role of Ramu. He went on to star in films like Hun Hunshi Hunshilal and Hum Aapke Hain Koun until he ventured into television with Kabhi Yeh Kabhi Woh in 1995.
Meanwhile, the Kia Sonet is extremely popular in its segment and Kia India’s second most-selling model after the Seltos. The model impresses with its sporty design, a long list of features and peppy petrol and diesel engines. The subcompact SUV draws power from the 1.2-litre naturally-aspirated petrol, 1.0-litre turbo petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine options. Transmission choices include the 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, 6-speed IMT, 7-speed DCT and a torque converter. The Kia Sonet is the only offering in its segment that offers the option of a diesel automatic.
It’s unclear as to which variant of the Kia Sonet did Dilip Joshi purchase. The images do reveal it to be the Sonet GT Line with all the bells and whistles. Prices for the Sonet GTX+ trim starts at Rs. 12.29 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
This latest Kia Sonet now stands along with two other car Audi Q7 & Toyota Innova in his garage. On the work front, the actor continues to headline TMKOC amidst an ensemble cast.
