    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ?

    Royal Enfield Bullet-The Indian Cult ? Find out !!

    If her keen interest in biking is any indication, she could well be the first actress in town to own a motorcycle in recent times. For that, she has Zoya Akhtar to thank, for casting her as a free-spirited girl who indulges in deep sea diving and dirt biking in Zindagi Milegi Na Dobara

    Kaif, who started learning how to ride a bike in Mumbai before flying to Spain for the marathon spell, is now quite adept at handling a Royal Enfield. “That’s what was required for my character. So why not?” says the actor. 

    “Initially, a lighter bike helps you learn how to balance better. So I familiarised myself with that when I was in the city. Once I was in Spain, I moved on to heavier bikes,” says Kaif, who claims that she easily passed her test with a lighter bike.

    On being questioned about the difficulties she overcame in handling a heavy motorcycle like a Royal Enfield for the stunts, the actor smiles, “I’m quite strong that way, you know.” But there must have been times when she struggled to control the bike or fell off in the beginning of her lessons? “Well, I suffered bruises on my knees a couple of times. But it’s no big deal,” she shrugs off. 

    However, by the time the schedule wrapped up, Kat had mastered the heavy-duty motorcycle. She reveals that she’d often go riding around after pack-up. “It was quite fun, riding around in Barcelona. Of course, the roads are good and there’s not too much traffic. But the experience has got me fascinated with the idea of owning a motorcycle,” she enthuses, adding that she’s looking forward to doing the bike stunts, having already finished her deep see diving portions for the movie. “Observing underwater life was a wonderful experience. Though I must admit lugging the heavy equipment can be tiring,” she says.

    Probe her if she has shortlisted any hot wheels to fulfill her desire yet, and she says, “Nah. Not yet. I don’t want a lightweight bike, nor do I want a heavy one… I’d prefer something medium-weight considering the roads and traffic in the city.” 

    Interestingly, Kat is not too gung-ho about wearing a helmet while riding on city roads. “When I’m on a bike I like to feel the wind in my face. Besides, it keeps your vision is free to look around while riding,” she says.

    Nonetheless, the actor is sure that when she eventually buys a bike, she will follow the traffic rules and will indeed wear a helmet. “Well, it will be a good disguise. Otherwise, people wondering why Katrina Kaif is riding around the city on a bike without a helmet might get too distracting for me,” she says.
