Remember the small boy from Noida who wished to purchase a Mahindra Thar for Rs 700 hasn’t acquired the car yet. However, he recently visited the Mahindra plant near Pune in Chakan and thoroughly enjoyed the experience.
Young boy who wanted to buy a Thar for ₹700 gets a special surprise from Anand Mahindra
For the unversed, in December, Anand Mahindra shared a video featuring a young kid named Cheeku discussing with his father about buying a Thar for just INR 700. Engaging in an adorable conversation with his father, he confuses the Thar with the XUV 700. Anand Mahindra found the child’s confusion amusing, stating that if they were to sell the Thar for ₹700, the company would go bankrupt.
Taking to X, he wrote,
“My friend Sooni Taraporevala sent me this saying ‘I love Cheeku!’ So I watched some of his posts on Instagram (@cheekuthenoidakid) and now I love him too. My only problem is that if we validated his claim and sold the Thar for 700 bucks, we’d be bankrupt pretty soon.”

Later, Cheeku visited the Chakan plant with his parents, arriving in a red Thar. The staff gave him a tour, allowing him to explore and film a demo reel of Mahindra vehicles’ interiors. Cheeku was thrilled to receive a toy Thar as well.
“CHEEKU goes to CHAKAN. From a viral video to a real-life adventure, Cheeku, the young Thar enthusiast, visited our Chakan plant, bringing smiles and inspiration with him. Thank you @ashakharga1 and Team @mahindraauto for hosting one of our best brand ambassadors! And I’m hoping it also prevents him now from asking his Dad to buy him a Thar for only Rs 700,”
Anand Mahindra said in the caption of his post.
