We all fervently speak about Harrison Ford being a trained pilot and a brilliant actor at the same time, stealing our hearts for ages now. However, what we chose to omit in these hyped-up love for Hollywood is that our very own Bollywood superstars are also trained professionals who can fly planes. Though the numbers are on the lower side as this is a niche skill, but the numbers exist.
In this article we will take a glance at those Bollywood actors who can fly planes.
1. Amitabh Bachchan
Bollywood’s very best, Amitabh Bachchan who has defied age for quite some time now, tops this list.
Sounds crazy? He isn’t just a trained actor but he did take up flight classes. In fact in an interview he stated that in case of an emergency, if the plane needs landing, you have a trained personnel on board. Quite an ending, as all might say.
2. Shahid Kapoor
We are talking about flying planes, and here Shahid Kapoor has mastered the art of flying an F-16 fighter plane. His role in Mausam made him take the flight classes as he doesn’t believe in taking body-doubles.
In fact he is the only actor in Bollywood who has flown an F-16.
3. Gul Panag
Gul Panag doesn’t believe in being stationary. She is a person who believes in filling herself with thrills and her bike-riding skills did rivet attention for all the right reasons.
To add to such excitement, she opted to learn flying a plane, and she is a trained professional in this hunt for the skies.
Though she isn’t a trained flight expert, she did get an opportunity to learn flying which she did until a certain extent in Italy.
In fact she did share the picture on Instagram.
5. Vivek Oberoi
Vivek Oberoi did learn to fly for his role in Krrish 3. He was trained in flying a Cessna aircraft which is a two-seater plane.
6. Sushant Singh Rajput
Sushanth Singh Rajput got this opportunity to learn flying for his upcoming movie Chanda Mama Door K.
