As Bollywood plays a huge role in Indian entertainment, it has become a major part of Indian culture. While many fans may think of meeting their favorite superstars or spending time with them, a petrol-head’s dream is to get behind the wheel of what their favorite stars commute in.
Many popular stars travel in high end BMW’s, AUDI Q series, MERCEDES BENZ and other luxury vehicles, but the “Baadshah of Bollywood” went an extra mile and got a DC customized bus for himself. The bus was modified by the well known Indian car designer, Dilip Chhabria who it seems it about 30,000 hours to complete the work. So lets dive into the details of this magnificent machine.
DC himself took the special efforts to work on the order from one of his biggest clients (probably). The lights, features and ambience inside the bus, all scream futuristic and somewhere down the line give you the thoughts from the movie Tron. The effect that you see on the floor is outstanding, thanks to a glass floor which has been equipped with LED lights. In fact, things are a bit sci-fi here as the floor is wooden and the roof is glass fitted, which seems like an interesting idea. Other fetures inside the vehicle includes Wi-Fi, Apple TV in all the rooms, three 4K television sets with satellite TV, and a top-notch sound system. It is said that a total sound output of 4000 Watts can be produced inside the bus.
The vanity van is 14 meters long and has an overall space of 280 sq.ft. The bus essentially houses 4 rooms – a meeting room, bedroom, toilet, make-up & changing room. To make it even more striking, DC Designs have taken it a step further by adding the provision to expand one room , with the help of a hydraulic system. This, in turn, increases the space by 80 sq.ft. – taking the total area on offer inside the bus to 360 sq.ft. ShahRukh Khan vanity van also gets touch-control for the entire lighting system, as well as heating and cooling. Then there is a kitchen with provisions for tea and coffee, and is also equipped with a microwave.
Shahrukh is more of a collector than a simple automobile enthusiast. He has a huge collection of cars and as an auto enthusiast, one can think that could be the reason why he is called as the King Of Bollywood (just kidding). ShahRukh Khan vanity van made by DC comes with an approximated hefty price tag of 4 Crores. This vehicle can sometimes be seen parked out of his residence “Mannat“. Other times King Khan can be spotted rolling in his new bus around Mumbai !!
