Meanwhile, business tycoon Anand Mahindra has also taken to Twitter to get connected with Arun. Mahindra had tweeted, “That model looks very cool indeed! I’d love to see if he’s interested in us helping him manufacture these toy models for sale to others. Could compete with imports of such toys if made in larger volumes.”
