"We wanted it to be an exciting ride, it’s bound to give you a rush."
Oscar-nominated Lagaan was an international phenomenon and of course an intriguing drama which conquered all hearts.
Almost over 15 years later, the magnum-opus film will now be a ride at Bollywood Parks Dubai!
This fun-filled attraction is called ‘Lagaan: Thrill of Victory Ride’ and will be located at the Rustic Ravine zone of the Bollywood-themed Park in Dubai.
It is a rollercoaster-based motion simulator, which gives visitors the perspective of a moving cricket ball.
Guests can therefore join Bhuvan (played by Aamir Khan) and team in a cricket game against the British Raj, all over again.
Talking about ‘Lagaan: Thrill of Victory ride’, Aamir the star himself says:
“The ride is about giving people an exciting time, giving you a feeling of exhilaration, and it will take you back to the film.
“So, for people who have watched the movie, it will be a nostalgic experience.
“For everyone, we wanted it to be an exciting ride, it’s very thrilling, it’s bound to give you a rush.”
However, there is another pleasant surprise for all riders and guests!
The ‘Dangal’ mentions: “I am playing two characters for this ride. One is the original Bhuvan, and the other is the maker of this ride, his great-great-grandson. He looks very different.
“We went for a steam-punk look as his character get-up, to give it a more futuristic look. He is very proud of his great-great-grandfather.”
Sounds exciting right?
But alongside Aamir, it seems Shahrukh Khan’s Don will also be a 3D ride called ‘Don: The Chase Ride’.
Talking about this action-packed attraction, King Khan says:
“This time the chase is in Dubai, on the very famous Sheikh Zayed Road and also other famous landmarks of Dubai.
“As the famous dialogue of the movie goes — ‘Don ko pakadana mushkil hi nahin, namumkin hai’ that means it’s not only difficult to catch Don, but impossible as well.”
One certainly looks forward to ‘Don: The Chase Ride’ and ‘Lagaan: Thrill of Victory Ride’!
Bollywood Dubai Parks, the world’s first and a part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, will open from October 31, 2016.
