Twinkle Khanna shared an image of an auto on Instagram. It shows the vehicle decked up with all sorts of facilities.


To provide a comfortable ride to passengers, an auto rickshaw driver in Mumbai came up with a unique idea. Satyawan Gite equipped his vehicle with several basic facilities and turned it into the ‘first home system’ auto rickshaw. And, the images of this modified vehicle have piqued the Internet’s interest, including former actress Twinkle Khanna.
The images show the auto decked up with several facilities ranging from washbasin to mobile charging points. Further, it also has several potted plants.
However, before knowing what Twinkle Khanna or other netizens wrote, here’s a video which shows Satyawan Gite with his auto:
“Washbasin and a desktop monitor, this genius Mumbai rickshaw belongs in the jugaad Hall Of Fame,” Khanna wrote while sharing an image of the auto.
News agency ANI too shared some images of the vehicle. Here’s what they tweeted:
People had a lot to say about this unique auto. “Right now I am riding in this auto rickshaw ... wow what an innovative idea. I had an awesome experience,” excitedly wrote an Instagram user. “Excellent,” commented another.


Here’s how tweeple reacted:
“You can charge your phone in my auto. There is purified drinking water and there is a washbasin. I also don’t charge senior citizens for rides up to one kilometre. The reason I did this is that I wanted to provide better services to passengers,” Gite told ANI.
Asked about Twinkle Khanna’s photograph of his auto on Instagram, the humble driver was pleasantly surprised and said he admires the former actress and her husband Akshay Kumar.
“I didn’t know about it but I am very surprised as well. I am a big fan of her and Akshay Kumar. I wish I could meet Akshay Kumar and Twinkle Khanna,” told Gite.
