Monica Dogra’s ‘time travel’ experience
Actor Monica Dogra (below) has already taken a trip to the future, but not in a fancy time machine. It was a autopilot car that gave her a futuristic experience at its launch event recently. Sharing her experience of being in a car with no driver, the actor says, “I’m glad to have done so. Going for an auto piloted test drive was like a trip to the future! I drove at 240km/hour in a robot driven race car. It was totally insane. Oddly, I felt really safe... Perhaps safer than I would have with a driver behind the wheel. I don’t know what that says about humanity’s future, but it is definitely a very big step that is being taken,” says Dogra, who started her Bollywood innings with Rock On!! (2008) and has been a part of movies such as Dhobi Ghat (2011) and David (2012), calls it a experience that everyone should have. In fact, the ride came as a surprise for the actor, reveals a source close to her. “Monica was invited to the event, but she didn’t know that she would be given a chance to sit in the passenger’s seat and the car would go on an autopilot mode, driving at such a fast speed,” says the source.
