In 2004, Ajay Devgn’s film ‘Taarzan: The Wonder Car’ hit the screens with a technologically sophisticated car being the highlight of the film. The film that also marked Bollywood debut of Vatsal Sheth and Ayesha Takia failed miserably at at the box office. It was actually a part of launch of a car named ‘Taarzan’ and since the film did not do well, the car was never launched. While not many people watched the film, its theme and title left a lasting impression on their minds.
The supercar, that was the focal point of the film was supposed to have 400BHP and 500NM of torque and capability to go from 0 to 60 in just 5.2 seconds. The film showed that Ajay Devgn’s soul was trapped inside the car and hence, it could drive itself and save lives.
The car was designed by celebrity car designer and founder of DC Design Dilip Chhabria.
A number of Bollywood films every year fail to hit it big at the box office and are hence forgotten by people as the time passes. ‘Taarzan: The Wonder Car’ might not have been able to leave a mark at the box office but the “wonder car” certainly left a lasting impression on people.
However, 13 years after the film was released, perhaps not many would have wondered what happened to the car until a Facebook user named Vikram Adityashukla found it in a ruined condition and uploaded its pictures in a closed group on the social media platform.
The pictures of the car in its current condition are going viral on the internet.
It is being held that since the film could not do well, the car wasn’t launched and this is why it is in such a condition now.
