    Guys , I have noticed a strange voice which sounds like a cooler fan when the car is on the roll, it exceed when speeding up and very clearly heard when car is in speed 30 km/hr - 40km/hr. But no such sound when car is not on roll.

    Can any body suggest if any of you faced similar sound issue.. Is this some thing can be related to alternator or some belts issue.

    You don't think it could be the turbo or the main radiator fan..?
    Not much to go from this description. Maybe if you manage to capture the sound on video and post link here, some could guess better.

    Better get it checked at an FASC visit if more than usual sound.

    Yup @pdash only things missing are "Taking off" and "touch down". Did not hear "calling ATC" :D

    For people interested in listening to cockpit communication: http://www.liveatc.net/

    @pdash I took my car to the DRS fiat gurgaon and shown this to guy Parvez and as per me he is best among all DRS mechanics.
    After road test he confirmed me that this sound is not coming from engine but either of the wheels. Post road test he put my car on lift and one by one checked all wheels and this right front wheel is having some noise and the culprit was ball bearing.
    Please find below video after resolving the issue
