Aamir Khan may be regarded as the industry’s perfectionist Khan. While the actor known for choosing his films selectively, has featured in films riding bikes, he never owned one himself. However, this has now changed. In fact Aamir has recently got himself a new special edition bike from Bajaj.
Apparently the 51 year old actor’s latest acquisition is the Bajaj ‘V’ series bike has been developed from the metal of the Indian Naval Services aircraft carrier INS Vikrant. Interestingly, we hear that Aamir Khan, who has always been an ardent fan of the ship, booked his edition of the bike when the same was announced a couple of months back and delivery of the same was done on Friday. Apart from the fact that the bike is a limited edition, Aamir Khan has further had the bike customized with the letter ‘A’ embossed on it.
As for the ship, the aircraft carrier INS Vikrant played an important role in enforcing the naval blockade during the 1971 Indo-Pak war. Decommissioned from the naval services in 1997 the carrier was later converted into a museum till 2012. Later in 2014 the Supreme Court had passed an order to scrap the ship which was later used for its metal in the bikes.
