Abhishek, the brand ambassador of Audi, talked of his love for Audi cars. He even related how the first car he had ever bought was an Audi with the money he made from his second movie Tera Jadoo Chal Gayaa because his father, veteran actor Amitabh Bachchan, had always told him to buy a car with his own money. So he did just that, and took his parents for a drive in it at after he brought it home.
