"This is the common man's car too ... common man who wants to be uncommon," Salman told reporters .When asked who would he like to gift the new model of Audi to, Salman said: "Let's see who deserves it. May be to somebody who actually looks good in it ... it would be Katrina (Kaif). I would not like to gift her though. Let somebody else gift it to her."
