In a fascinating turn-of-events, Heropanti director Ahmed Khan and his wife recently arrived in a Batmobile to attend the Batman screening. The director and his wife turned heads, one after the other, thanks to their unique and timely ride.

The video of the filmmaker-choreographer turning up to catch the latest Robert Pattinson starring flick was shared first by paparazzi Viral Bhayani on Instagram, and subsequently, images of the same have been going viral on the internet.

Khan had made the buzz earlier last year when he gifted a limited edition custom-made Batmobile to his life. The Batmobile is reminiscent of the classic drive of the caped crusader that was used in the 1989 Batman film which starred Michael Keaton, Jack Nicholson, and more.

It should be noted that the celebrity duo aren’t the only ones to own the unique vehicle. Serum Institute of India chief Adar Poonawalla also converted his Mercedes S350 into a Batmobile. The vaccine maker chief reportedly gifted the Batmobile to his son Cyrus Jr.

The Facts of the Matter

The Hollywood industry has introduced motor-heads to a plethora of unique cars over the course of the year. From Back to the Future fame DeLorean, to James Bond’s ever-evolving Aston Martin, to Audi R8 driven by Tony Stark/Iron Man, it’s fairly safe to assume that Hollywood has given fans a fair share of memorable cars over generations.

However, one of cars that sits in a league of its own is none other than Batmobile. Driven by every iteration of Batman produced by Hollywood, the caped crusader’s glorious ride is a dream car for many. The beast of a car is armed with superior technology, built almost like a tank, and carries ammunition, among other features.

Recently, choreographer-actor Ahmed Khan recently turned up at the screening of The Batman with a custom-made limited edition of the Batmobile with his wife. The Heropanti director and his wife were spotted rolling to the movies by paparazzi and visuals of the same have been making rounds of social media.

Netizens React to Ahmed Khan’s Batmobile

Netizens were obviously left awe-struck and reacted in their own way on Instagram. While some dropped emojis, expressing their excitement, others made witty remarks about the unique ride.

“Yaha purani card park nhi kar sakte (Here we are not able to park our old car)”, an Instagram user wrote. “Desi batman and batwomen”, quipped another netizen on Instagram. “Bhai gaadi toh badiya h Ye (this is one good ride)”, wrote another Instagram user while another commented, “aeroplane hai kya (is this an aircraft?). Another Instagram user commented, “It is his moment let him live it”.

Ahmed Khan Had Gifted Batmobile to Wife in 2021

It should be noted that the Baaghi director had gifted the uber-cool vehicle to his wife Shaira Ahmed Khan, earlier in 2021. According to reports, the Ahmed Khan owned Batmobile took as many as eight months to arrive from the US and was made by Gotham Motors, and was assembled in Mumbai at the Executive ModCar Trendz.

Back then, Shaira had taken to Instagram to show the world her glorious gift. She also captioned the post with, “Thanku love @khan_ahmedasas for this dream come true … #Ourdreamcar #keatonmobile1989 #batmobile @____azaan____ @_subhaankhan_ #keepingupwiththekhans.”

Serum Institute Chief Cyrus Poonawalla Also Owns a Batmobile

While Ahmed Khan and his wife are proud owners of Batmobile, they aren’t the only one in the country to own the ride of the caped crusader. Serum Institute of India chief Adar Poonawalla also owns a one-of-a-kind Batmobile which was converted by refurbishing a vintage Mercedes S350. According to reports, Executive ModCar Trendz was hired to turn the luxury sedan into a crime-fighting vehicle. The company was paid a hefty fee of Rs. 40 lakhs which were sued to add separate wings on the car.
