One of the biggest Bollywood superstars Salman Khan is known not only for his acting prowess but also for his fondness for luxury cars and bikes.

One such prized possession and trusted vehicle in his automotive collection is the formidable Bulletproof Land Cruiser LC200. Recently, a video was shared online showing Salman leaving his brother Arbaaz Khan’s home in his white armored SUV along with his gunmen and other security personnel.
