The sight of Bollywood celebrities driving or being driven in luxurious cars and SUVs is nothing new. It’s common to spot them in vehicles from esteemed brands like Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi, and Land Rover. However, a couple of years ago, the cast of the Bollywood movie ‘Sooryavanshi’ made headlines when they arrived at a media event in rare and opulent cars like the Lamborghini Urus and Rolls-Royce Cullinan.
During a media event for the film ‘Sooryavanshi’ a couple of years ago, Bollywood actor Akshay Kumar made a grand entrance on a Honda CBR650F. He rode the bike while donning all the necessary protective gear, including a helmet, riding jacket, and boots. As the brand ambassador for Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India, Akshay Kumar chose the CBR650F, which has since been replaced by the more powerful and aggressive-looking CBR650R. However, due to its versatile and refined inline-four engine, the CBR650F remains highly sought-after in the used two-wheeler market.
After a while, the director of the movie, Rohit Shetty, arrived in his eye-catching yellow Lamborghini Urus, driving himself. Rohit Shetty was among the first celebrities in Bollywood to own a Urus, and he was soon followed by others like Ranveer Singh and Kartik Aryan. While Ranveer opted for an orange-coloured Urus, Kartik chose a sleek black shade for his vehicle.
A few minutes later, another popular face and actor from the movie, Ajay Devgn, made his way to the media event in a black Rolls-Royce Cullinan, driven by his chauffeur. Ajay was the first Bollywood personality to acquire a Cullinan for himself. Shortly after his significant purchase, renowned Bollywood producer and the head of T-Series, Bhushan Kumar, also joined the ranks of Cullinan owners by acquiring a striking red-colored one.
The arrival of Bollywood celebrities in these high-end vehicles created quite a stir among onlookers. Typically, Bollywood stars are often seen driving sedans and SUVs from renowned German luxury brands. However, vehicles like the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Lamborghini Urus are not as commonly spotted on Indian roads compared to the more popular luxury offerings from German manufacturers.
Both the Rolls-Royce Cullinan and Lamborghini Urus are brought to India through direct imports and are available in limited numbers, making them exclusive and highly sought-after SUVs in the country. They also come with hefty price tags, ranking among the most expensive SUVs one can purchase in India. On the other hand, the Honda CBR650F was relatively affordable when compared to other superbikes. Even its successor, the CBR650R, remains one of the more accessible inline-four motorcycles available in the Indian market today.
