Bollywood films are well-known for their star power, extravagant song and dance routines and for the glitz and glamour. Filmmakers use a variety of tropes to entertain audiences with their films. Shooting at exotic locations and using some of the most expensive but iconic cars are some of the tropes used by filmmakers. Bollywood movies have witnessed a lot of amazing machinery scorch the silver screen.
The Toyota Supra needs no introduction to whatsoever. The iconic Japanese car achieved pop-culture immortality with its appearance in the Fast and Furious film franchise.
