Real fans will remember it as one of Rajinikanth's best films ever, obviously.

The film about an auto driver with a dark past in Mumbai's underworld was one of the biggest films of 1995.

However, fans have been seeing a strange addition to the auto our hero drives in the new version.

Look carefully.

YEP. That's an Ola Auto he's driving.

FYI, here’s a shot from the 1995 original vs. the 2017 release so you can REALLY see the difference.

The fans are having a good laugh at the random addition to the revival, with some even applauding the smart marketing move.
