John Abraham gifts his favorite bike to Sanjay Gupta
Bollywood mach man John Abraham has a decided weakness for machines, especially fast ones on two wheels. In fact, in his earliest hitDhoom, he was seen zooming past the cops in the fastest motorcycle of the time, a Suzuki Hayabusa. His prized mechanical possession includes a number of powerful motorcycles, an all black Lamborghini Gallardo LP-560-4, Audi’s Q7 luxury SUV and a specially tuned Maruti Gypsy. So, it is no wonder that he chose a mean monster in the form of a bike to gift to his friend Sanjay Gupta who has directed his latest film Shootout at Wadala. This is not the first time that John Abraham has shown his appreciation with a machine. He had gifted a Harley Davidson to his costar Akshay Kumar to celebrate the success of their film Housefull 2.
"I promised Sanjay when we started shooting for ` Shootout at Wadala ` that if movie will be hit, then I will gift a bike. No, No, I am just kidding. I promised him because he was very fond of this bike and I know I will be gifting him this bike, I was just finding a right moment to gift him and I thought after movie` release, I should gift him," said John.
Sanjay Gupta was full of praise for the generous gift. He tweeted "I am now a very proud owner of The Yamaha VMax Motorcycle thanks to my hero John Abraham. Can't wait to go on a really long ride on my new beauty. Thank you John. This is the best gift ever. The sweet bike of success :-)"
When asked how he plans to celebrate his new gift, Gupta said, "I will first take it home and show it to my kids because my younger son is very fond of bikes. This bike is a big inspiration for me because a genuine biker knows its value. And I will take one promise from John, that after the next film also, he will gift me one more bike."
John was full of lavish praise of his director. While giving his gift, Abraham stated, “Sanjay Gupta is the best director for me. He is amazing. He is outstanding. He gave me my life and he re-introduced me as Manya Surve. I am very, very indebted to him.”
“It’s big relief for me and at the same time, like I say,
there is no good or bad actor and there is no good or bad director,” he added.
