Saif Ali Khan is not a Fan of Car Racing

'Tara Rum Pum' is a movie about car racing. If I am not wrong then 'Tara Rum Pum' is perhaps the first movie about car racing. Saif Ali Khan plays the lead role in the movie. He is a car racing driver and his life is car racing. He is a family man too. The funny thing is that in real life Saif Ali Khan is not a big racing fan.

Though Saif enjoyed shooting the movie, the bit he found the toughest was when he actually had to sit in a race car and drive at high speeds.

And once the G forces begin acting on the vehicle, that is when the driver’s mettle is tested.

For the scenes that required driving at really very high speeds, a duplicate was used for security reasons. But for one scene Saif himself was at the wheels, driving the car at 150 miles per hour.

The experience, Saif says, was very physically demanding.

Poor Saif but I am sure that after 5-10 years Saif will look back to his career and feel that he did the smartest thing by working in the movie 'Tara Rum Pum'. It is the first movie in Bollywood about car racing and Saif is the hero. By doing so, has Saif Ali ensured a place in the history of Bollywood Movies?
