Enfield Bullet iconically romancing Indian movies in 2020 & beyond

Despite the entry of all international super bikes in India, the Enfield Bullet rules over others as the symbol of power ~ Romancing the Indian cinema.


I was wondering if the arrival of a lot of super-duper bikes in India made the Indian movie audience move away from the Enfield Bullet as "The Motorbike" compared to my previous blog in 2011. Not yet and never will, it seems.


Most in India who have grown up watching Hindi movies will definitely remember the hero on a motorbike ... it had to be a Royal Enfield Bullet. (Always wear a helmet and safety gear while on motorbikes)

Of course, I personally can't imagine Amitabh Bachan riding a 150cc fat fati Rajdoot which used to always seem like gasping for dear breath! Now that's something that's real undigestable. The hero on an Enfield Bullet reflects sheer power through its classic iconic status.

Notably starting from the 1975 movie Sholay featuring Amitabh and Dharmendra on the Bullet, now 45 long years down the line even if we just look at recent movies, we can see the Enfield featured prominently.


Take a look - Kabir Singh movie December 2019 



Or these ... down the last couple of years ... Badri or Dabangg for that matter





It's the Royal Enfield Bullet all the way ... 



Indian Movies featuring Enfields in 2011's

+ Ajay Devgan in 'Singham'
+ Katrina in 'Zindagi Na Milega Dobaara'
+ Arbaaz Khan in 'Dabangg'
+ Kangana in 'Tanu weds Manu'
+ Gul Panag in 'Turning 30'







Iconic Bullet ... From 1975..Sholay...


Just goes to prove that even with the Harley's, Triumph's and Ducati's available in India, the Enfield Bullet continues its supreme reign over Indian movie audiences. Probably, other bikes are not able to match the iconic road presence and the feeling of sheer power in Indian minds - that a Bullet brings.

Indian movie buffs need the Bullet for the iconic power - On or Off screen it seems :) 

Cheers
