Here's a look into how Superbikes are securing their place on today's Silver Screen

 

 

 

 

 

If there’s one thing that Bollywood films are never devoid of, it is the glamour quotient that only seems to be growing with every new film that makes it to the theatres these days. Fast cars and beautiful women seem to just fit in ohhhh so smoothly, regardless of what the script of the movie essentially talks about. Keeping that in mind, it should come to you as no surprise when I say that Bollywood films off late have very consciously added high displacement Superbikes to their GQ kitty, thus ensuring the glam sham in their films only rises in popularity.

 

Now it’s quite safe to say that true car and bike fans around world choose to believe that they are averse to the gossip and unending musicals that come with Bollywood movies. Even the action scenes seem so exaggerated time after time with some hero always dodging a rain of mistimed bullets. But since the start of the Dhoom revolution, bikes and Bollywood suddenly seem like distant relatives, now seeking to bond once again.  

 

Celebrating this connection in the limelight of the recently released Lafangey Parindey, the latest in a series of Bollywood films with bikes and motorcycles playing a part in its storyline, we here at ZigWheels have decided to dedicate an exclusive feature to this new transformation in Indian cinema. Read on to find out which Suzuki Superbikes were used in which recent Bollywood movie, the bike that Neil Nitin Mukesh used to perform stunts in his latest starrer Lafangey Parindey, and finally, for those who thought stunt biking was something left unattempted, read on to find out why we think otherwise...
