Gul Panag is well known as the "Biker Girl" in India. The actress had created waves, choosing to ride in the side cart of a bike with hubby as her vehicle of choice right after her wedding, from the mandap to home! With her genuine passion and interest in all things auto, it's not surprising that auto and bike brands love the actress, and that she is on may car and bike award juries too.
But now this seems to have crossed borders, with Gul being invited to a very exclusive event by super-bike maker - Triumph who have finally unveiled their all-new 1199cc Triumph Thruxton and Thruxton R, the range-topping duo that herald the arrival of a completely new collection of five Bonnevilles. starting from the entry-level all-new Street Twin, two ‘classic’ Bonnevilles, and the new Thruxton models. A few other international celebrities present at the event were Edris Alba, Carl Fogarty, Tom Hardy, Gillian Anderson, Reggie Yates, Charlie Boman
"All girls in my family ride bikes. I've grown up with this being the done thing. I first rode a bike when I was 16. I had a cousin in the Army who’d left a Bullet behind. That was the summer I learned to ride,” she says.
Dressed in custom-made Gauri Nainika gown, Gul certainly upped the style quotient at the event, which was attended by a host of international celebrities.
Gul said, “It was like being a kid in a candy shop. The new Bonnies look awesome – while not losing the classic appeal. I feel very honoured to be in the UK as a special guest of Triumph and share the excitement of the new launches.’
