Bollywood's legendary obsession with cars!
In films, cars are not mere means of transportation. They take a life of their own.
Whether the hero is taking his ladylove on a long drive while crooning Choori nahi yeh mera dil hai (Gambler) or hoodwinking a gang on his hot pursuit in a long, exciting chase (Don) or a white-sari clad heroine looking to hitchhike outside a graveyard, cars serve an important role in the proceedings.
Over the years, the focus has become a lot more prominent.
Like, in Ashima Chibber's Mere Dad Ki Maruti, which hits screens this Friday, Saqib Saleem plays a youngster who sneaks out his father's beloved red hatchback to impress a girl and promptly loses it triggering a series of madcap adventures.
On that note, here's looking at Bollywood's obsession with cars.
