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 Ranveer 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.
