Creating a movie which is a period drama is never easy. And for
Vikramaditya Motwane it was more difficult as 1950s was an era when
things changed dramatically in India.
Things got even more difficult when according to Lootera's script
Singh's character needed to ride an Ariel bike that stopped
manufacturing after the year 1960.
There are about only 3 or 4 Ariel motorcycle in the entire India.
And most of them are with connoisseurs who wouldn't part way with
their bikes whatever the cost is. But somehow the director arranged
the bike for the movie.
Ranveer Singh, while shooting Lootera, fell in love
with the motorcycle. He says that the bike is a delight to ride and
the fact it is so rare adds to its charm.
Ranveer Singh made a special request to the director of the
movie that if he could keep the motorcyle after the shoot. He
personally enjoyed riding it.
Lootera also stars Sonakshi Sinha and is expected to
release in July 2013.
