The dishy dude had committed to do something for his Housefull 2 co-star almost a year ago, but he didn’t forget about it!
John Abraham presented his Housefull 2 co-star and good friend Akshay Kumar with a black Harley Davidson superbike. The Khiladi actor is yet to take the fancy wheels out on Indian tarmac. Reason: he is waiting for a specific number plate for his new love.
John’s act of affection for Akki isn’t sudden and surprising. It all started on the sets of one of their films together, Desi Boyz. The model-turned-actor – who is obsessed with Harleys, Yamahas and Hayabusas – transported one of his own fancy two-wheelers all the way to London to use in a few scenes for Rohit Dhawan’s comedy. As soon as his co-star Akshay set eyes on the mean machine, he fell in love with it.
A few weeks after the film’s London schedule, John promised his co-star that if both their films together – Desi Boyz and Housefull 2 – raked in big bucks at the box office, he would present his buddy with a bike. The model-turned-actor, whose first hit film (Garam Masala) was with Akshay confirmed the news and said, “Since the first time we worked together, Akshay has always been a strong support. He loved the motorcycle, so it’s my way of showing my love and respect for him.”
