Monica Do­gra’s ‘time travel’ ex­pe­ri­ence

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment - YASHIKA MATHUR

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.
