Not only this, he also has ordinary cars, but the main attraction is his Rolls Royce Ghost, which he hires out to filmstars like Aamir Khan, Amitabh Bachchan and other corporate giants.
Even though he’s super-rich, he doesn’t forget to visit the shop thrice a week and sometimes, he even drives to work in his Rs 3.1 crore Rolls Royce Ghost. He purchased this with his hard earned money.
Ramesh is known as the richest hairstylist due to his fancy cars, which he maintains with a lot of care. The income from the salon is average, but the money that he earns from rental car business is immense.
Things were very difficult for Ramesh and his family in 1989, when his father died. Barber shop was the only means of survival they had. Ramesh’s mom leased the shop and would get Rs 5 per day; moreover, she even took up some household work to fulfill their requirements.
The idea of purchasing a car clicked Ramesh’s mind while running the barber shop. Firstly, he purchased a Maruti Omni (On loan) in 1994 for renting out to people and this is what changed his life. Someone advised him to lease the car to Intel, and he earned a good return by doing so. This is how the rental car business kick started. By 2004, he had started a car rental business with the name “Ramesh Tours” and had 7 regular cars. It was a full-fledged business and with all those savings, he managed to get a fleet of luxury cars within 10 years i.e. till 2014.
Ramesh’s 1st car was a Mercedes E-Class Luxury Sedan costing Rs 38 lakhs and now, his fleet consists of 200 cars including a Rolls Royce Silver Ghost, BMW 5, 6, 7, Mercedes E and S. Apart from that, he also has a fleet of Toyota mini-buses and Mercedes vans.
For Rolls Royce, Ramesh charges around Rs 75,000 per day, which is a super-high amount. Not only does he own these cars, but has a high-end bike Suzuki-Intruder too.
