Scooters are no longer for unclejis, they’re cool enough for Bollywood. Here are our favourite phatphatis, er, our favourite actors on scooters.
Ranbir Kapoor in Rocket Singh and Bachna Ae Haseeno
Because this man can do anything with a scooter. Correction: he can do anything and look amazing. We loved Rocket Singh, the salesman, and we gushed at him speeding on the scooter with Minissha Lamba in that awful song Ahista Ahista.
Kareena Kapoor in 3 idiots
The beautiful Pangong lake in the background; Bebo, the runaway bride, riding a Scooty to her man, a kiss, and happily ever after. Now, that’s true love. Oh, and that scene with that collapsing old man squeezed between Aamir and Kareena! Hilarious.
Shahid Kapoor in Kaminey
Aww. A dulha on a Scooty! Need we say more?
Rishi Kapoor in Do Dooni Chaar
The scooter is both the hero and the villain. And Rishi Kapoor is amazing as that honest, middle-class maths teacher who rides a scooter but aspires to own a car.
