10 times Bollywood said Goodbye to Road safety

As the road safety week begins, we list down 10 Bollywood films which rather conveniently ignored road safety in the name of creative freedom. India is one country where citizens, especially the younger generation, are inspired by Bollywood films and their favourite actors. Fans tend to follow each and everything their favourite celebrity do on screen, sometime forgetting the difference between real and reel world.

The one major problem which the traffic police has often faced is how some people ram their bikes and cars on road which is the major reason behind road accidents. It would not be wrong to say that some of this road safety breakers are hugely inspired by the illogical action sequences of Bollywood.

So as the road safety week kick starts from today, we list down the 10 Bollywood action sequences which you should definitively not try to ape in your real life. Check it out

Bullet Raja

The Nawab of Bollywood feels a total Nawab even on a busy road and hence he stops moving cars, jumps on them and runs on them.

Golmaal 3/ Phool aur Kaante

It’s not new for Ajay Devgn to make grand entries by standing on two running bikes. He is a pro at that as he started this trend from his film Phool Aur Kaante and has also did the same, out of the box stunt, in Golmaal 3.

Seeta Aur Geeta 

We didn’t expect veteran actors like Hema Malini and late actor Sanjeev Kumar in the list. However, their childish act of skating dangerously on road in the song O Saathi Chal has made us to put their name in the list.

Main Hoon Naa

Farah Khan went one step ahead of friend Rohit Shetty with Main Hoon Naa. While Rohit has shown his actors jumping and coming out from flying cars, Farah showed how Shah Rukh who is riding on a three tire bicycle cart, stand still in the air for a good 2 second along with his flying bicycle, fires from his gun and then resumes cycling again.

So Ajay Devgn very calmly comes out from his running car and shoots the goon. Meanwhile, the car which is till now moving in the background suddenly stops. In the same scene you can see a flying car going above Devgn’s head. But Ajay being the true Singham not only stand still but also takes the goon out from the car which is in the air and beats the hell out of him.

Dhoom Franchise

From carelessly riding bike to jumping from a running bike into a truck, the Dhoom franchise is the epitome of road safety rules breaker. There’s a scene in Dhoom 2 where you can also see Hrithik skating on a busy road, on running cars and on what not

Khiladi 420

We do admit its a bit weird to have Akshay Kumar in the same list as the actor has been recently appointed as the brand ambassador of Road safety. Nevertheless, the below scene is another classic example where Bollywood proved why it is convenient to skate on busy roads rather than to ride a bike or car

Chennai Express

Another Rohit Shetty film which stands tall when it comes to not following the road safety rules. In the below scene you can see SRK, who himself is driving a car, very casually bends down and cuts the tire of another moving car with a sharp weapon. Possible,? Who cares after all it’s a Rohit Shetty film

Kaho Na Pyaar Hai

How we wish Hrithik Roshan’s character Rohit would have wore a helmet. Yes we know that he died because of drowning, still wearing helmet is always a safe and sound thing to do while riding a bike .

All The Best

To all the boys and men over there, thinking to propose your girl in the below style, please don’t do it. A, its’ not at all romantic and B, its not possible without risking your life.

The only question we want to ask all the above celebrities and the makers of these films, in true Akshay Kumar style, is ‘Baap Ka Road Hai Kya?’
