Bollywood Stars Get On a 50cc Moped

Did you know that scooters and mopeds are the most affordable form of transportation for most families in India? For the majority of Indian families, normal cars are just too expensive, which leads many of them to ride only mopeds when they need to go somewhere.

In an effort to portray some realism and connect with the everyday person, many Bollywood stars have got a 50cc moped and ditched their expensive cars. So, which members of Bollywood’s star-studded cast have taken to riding cheaper vehicles? Keep reading now to find out more.

• Amitabh Bachchan

First up, we have Amitabh Bachchan.  Even though he’s very famous Bollywood star, he was spotted riding a moped in normal street clothes, something an everyday man might wear.

It was later learned that he was portraying a man of meager means looking for a job in an upcoming film. However, it seems that Amitabh has taken a liking to riding 50cc mopeds and continues to do so even in his time off from filming.

• Shah Rukh Khan

Another one of Bollywood’s most famous stars, Shah was also recently seen riding his own 50cc moped. In his most recent film, he was shown riding a 50cc moped down the street. He portrayed an average man, with his wife riding along behind him.

Shah also rode a moped in another film he starred in, titled Chak De! India. The film was very popular, allowing its audience to feel more connected with Shah as a main character while watching him do some of the things that many of them do daily.

• Dhanush

Yet another Bollywood star has been shown riding a 50cc moped on the film sets of Raanjhanaa. He was riding a gray Bajaj Chetak, attempting to keep out of a rainstorm that had blown into the set.

For the same film, Dhanush is shown riding a bright yellow moped with costar Sonam Kapoor, smiling wide for the audience. There were a lot of scenes in this particular film of the Bollywood star riding a moped.

• Anushka Sharma

And finally, Anushka is another star that has been seen riding a 50cc moped recently. Anushka initially had a terrible time learning to ride a moped, ending up on the news for how bad she was while filming Ladies Vs Ricky Bahl.

However, since then, Anushka has taken a liking to riding on two wheels. She has her own moped and has starred in other films where she was shown riding 50cc mopeds in various scenes.

It’s clear to see that the 50cc moped isn’t just for the average person but can also be enjoyed by even the wealthiest people across India and the world. Truly, these little scooters are great vehicles for those who are on a tight budget. Their reliability also makes them great for anyone with greater means, too. They are very safe and always remember you need moped insurance always to be legal on the road.
