Using regular vehicles in big Bollywood blockbusters is often an effective strategy for marketing. The cars get exposure to a wide range of audiences. Mostly, it is not a random selection. The car makers set aside some budget to actually feature their cars in such movies. In essence, it is an advertisement for the cars. I have seen it happen on countless occasions. Oftentimes, an SUV like the Scorpio N will display its off-road capabilities in a war movie like Sam Bahadur. Therefore, the audience will get to see it perform impressive feats on unforgiving terrains.
