Volvo XC90 R-Design made its Bollywood debut by starring in the ‘3 Idiots’ movie which will be premiered on December 25. Considered as one of the most awaited releases of 2009, the movie was produced by Vinod Chopra Films and directed by Raj Kumar Hirani.

"We are delighted to be a part of a big banner Bollywood movie. Bollywood is a cult in India," said Paul De Voijs, Managing Director, Volvo Auto India.

“The movie and its lead characters emanate vibrancy, energy and sportiness; exactly the qualities represented by our XC90 R-Design. Hence the ideal integration of our brand and the movie,"

“The film is about the journey two friends undertake in their search for a third compatriot, played by Aamir Khan. The backdrop of the movie is along the length and breadth of India, covering the scenic beauty of the mountainous region of Ladakh,”
