Two groups of colleagues, along with four luxury vehicle winners, were announced at the Dubai Duty Free Millennium Millionaire and Finest Surprise draw held on August 6 in Concourse A, Dubai International Airport.

As a regular participant in the Dubai Duty Free promotions, Hari split the ticket cost with his 10 colleagues at a logistics company in Jebel Ali.

“Many thanks from myself and my colleagues; we have been waiting for this for a long time. Thank you, Dubai Duty Free,” he said.
