Bollywood’s leading ladies are some of the most recognised people on the planet today and like their opposites on the silver screen and like the rest of us Indians, they too seem obsessed with SUVs. The Range Rover from British marque Land Rover is one of the most popular SUVs in Bollywood and in this list, we take a look at some of the leading ladies of Hindi films that have one of these SUVs in their garages.
Alia Bhatt’s first big foray onto the silver screen was in the 2012 movie ‘Student of the Year’, though she had made her debut as a child in the 1999 film ‘Sangharsh’. Alia Bhatt is one of the most bankable names in Bollywood today and her growing car collection is one featuring mostly high-end SUVs and sedans from Audi and BMW.
In late 2017, Bhatt stepped away from her car collection’s Germanic obsession when she bought herself the Vogue variant of the Range Rover by Land Rover. Alia’s Range Rover is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 turbo diesel engine that produces 240bhp and 600Nm of torque. The Range Rover Vogue sends its power to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Alia Bhatt’s Range Rover is priced at around Rs 1.6 crore, ex-showroom.
Actress Malaika Arora first burst onto our screens as a VJ with MTV. Her first movie role came as a dancer in the iconic song ‘Chaiyya Chaiyya’ in the movie ‘Dil Se’. Malaika Arora’s latest addition to her garage is a dark blue Range Rover Vogue LWB with a 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine which is paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox and permanent four-wheel-drive.
Anushka Sharma made her acting debut alongside Shahrukh Khan in the 2008 romantic drama ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. Since then, she has acted in hit movies like PK, Sultan and Sanju and has also ventured into the world of film production. In December 2017, Anushka married Virat Kolhi in one of the most talked about celeb weddings in the country.
Anushka’s Range Rover is also a Vogue variant but unlike the V6-powered SUVs we saw earlier, her luxury SUV derives its grunt from a 4.4-litre turbo V8 diesel engine. The Range Rover Vogue’s V8 engine produces 335 Bhp and 740 Nm of torque which is sent to all four wheels via an 8-speed automatic gearbox and a permanent four-wheel-drive system.
Sri Lankan actress Jacqueline Fernandez made her acting debut in the 2009 fantasy movie ‘Aladin’. Her biggest hit till date is 2014’s ‘Kick’, where she starred alongside Salman Khan. She owns an older version of the Range Rover Vogue, which is fitted with a sports kit giving it a rather distinct look.
Shruti Haasan, the daughter of actor and politician Kamal Haasan, made her debut as a child actor in her father’s movie ‘Hey Ram’ (2000). She debuted as the leading lady in the 2009 Bollywood flick ‘Luck’. Her best-known movie till date is the Tamil flick, 3, which featured the viral song, Why This Kolaveri Di?
Shruti Haasan’s Range Rover is the smallest SUV in the Land Rover range, the Evoque. The Evoque is available with 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. The engines are paired to a 9-speed automatic gearbox.
Kareena Kapoor made her acting debut in the movie ‘Refugee’ in 2000. Since then, she’s appeared in a number of blockbuster movies including Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham and 3 Idiots. Kareena Kapoor is currently married to actor Saif Ali Khan and has a young son with the latest Nawab of Pataudi.
Saif and Kareena have been seen numerous times in the white Range Rover Vogue seen above. Kareena’s Range Rover Vogue is an older generation model which was offered with six different engine options in India.
