Manuchandran Gopalakrishna Pillai, who hails from Kerala, took home a BMW 750Li xDrive M Sport after his number popped up in the Dubai Duty Free’s ‘finest surprise’ draw held at the Dubai International Airport last week. The model costs around Rs 1.62 crore in India.
A senior engineer with an air condition company in Sharjah, Manu had bought the tickets from the Dubai airport in February while he was returning to Sharjah from Kerala. The ticket was bought for AED 500.
Manu, who has been working in the UAE for the last 30 years, is currently settled in Sharjah, with wife Raji and children Rahul and Reshma.
