In the trailer and poster of the upcoming movie TE3N where Amitabh Bachchan riding in a blue scooter with Nawazuddin Siddiqui, the owner was paid a huge amount to take over its possession.
The owner of the scooter is Sujit Narayan Sur who says the scooter is 13 years old, more than a decade. He is an automobile vendor based in Tollygunge, and he is now inundated with offers from the veteran star’s fans and collectors of antique items, ready to pay a big price for it.
But the most interesting fact is Sujit Nayaran Sur refused all the offers. But when he came to know that Mr. Amitabh Bachchan is going to ride the scooter he was thrilled with joy, he even can’t believe at first.
Talking to reporters he said, “The scooter has been with me for the last 13 years. I had given it to the film unit when they approached me with the sketch of a scooter they had created for Amitabh Bachchan’s character to drive around on because this one matched their requirements. I was thrilled that Mr Bachchan would ride my scooter which is at least two decades old.”
He gave his scooter till the end of the shoot but he did not sold it, he said, “I will not be able to give it for hire. I want to keep it in my house with a huge photo of Mr Bachchan. The scooter that the star rides is priceless. So, there is no question of selling it.”
