Aaryan referred to the electric racing series as the “Shehzada of racing,” meaning “Prince” in Hindi.
In the video, Kartik Aaryan speaks about his role in “Shehzada” and his association with Formula E, saying: “I am the Jindal Family’s true prince and the true prince of racing is the Formula E world championship, coming to India for the first time.” He added, “Get ready for India’s first-ever net-zero event.”
Greenko Formula E, expressed her excitement about Kartik Aaryan‘s support for the sport and said, “We are very happy to welcome Kartik as a fan of Formula E and love his description of Formula E as the prince of racing.

FREE PRACTICE 2: Bird Heads The Way Ahead Of Qualifying
As track conditions dramatically improved over the session, Jaguar TCS Racing’s Sam Bird finished Free Practice 2 fastest with a 1m13.631s. Six-tenths of a second separate the top 15 drivers as we get ready for India’s first-ever Formula E qualifying session.
Bird, who currently sits fourth in the Drivers’ standings, skillfully navigated his Jaguar around the 2.835km street circuit but cut a corner on his fastest lap. Track limits have proved to be quite the challenge around the Hyderabad track, with several drivers getting caught out so far this weekend across the chicane. His ultimate time was enough to see him top as his hot streak continues.
The sister Jaguar of Mitch Evans was the first driver of the weekend to break into the 1m14s, as 10 minutes into the session, he set a 1m14.926s. However, it didn’t take long for Cassidy to duck into the 1m13s, with much more lap time available to drivers as track conditions improved.
