Inside Story: ONLY Actor to have his face on an F1 Car, #MasterBlaster (re-run) - Inside Line F1 Podcast


Indian Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan aka King Khan is world famous. But did you know, he’s the ONLY actor in the world to have his face on a Formula 1 car?

Yes, here’s one of our Force India Formula 1 Team specials. Back in the day, SRK, as he’s fondly known, starred in Ra.One. As a part of his film’s promotions, SRK’s photo was plastered on the nose of the Force India Formula 1 car that raced in the  inaugural 2011 Indian Grand Prix.

In this episode of the Inside Line F1 Podcast, Soumil Arora chats with Ravikant Sabnavis and Kunal Shah about Force India’s maverick marketing activities around the world, their association with Sachin “#MasterBlaster” Tendulkar (yes, we LOVE it when Cricket meets F1), the team’s junior driver program, The “One from a Billion Hunt”, building Motorsport-themed games for kids at KidZania and exploring a Formula 1-themed rollercoaster ride among others. 

Tune in!
