Vanity Vans are an integral part of Bollywood. The reason is that celebrities spend long hours on shoots. This can be within the city or sometimes in outdoor locations. The vanity van provides them with the comforts of home during the long hours they spend on location. Many celebs today own luxurious vanity vans with tastefully done interiors that have all the comforts they need to unwind or catch up on some shuteye. But there was a time when no one had heard about vanity vans. Actors faced many issues while shooting in outdoor locations. But finally, the day arrived when the concept of a vanity van was introduced in Bollywood. The actress who did this was none other than Poonam Dhillon. She and her x-husband Ashok Thackeria were the first to own vanity vans. These vanity vans were inaugurated by the late actress Sridevi and Anil Kapoor.
In a video shared by a popular youtube channel Lehren Retro, one can get a glimpse of the vanity van. The video seems to be from the late ’80s.
