John Abraham is someone, who likes to keep his promises, especially to his good friend Akshay Kumar.
According to reports, taking into account the success of their film Housefull 2 at the box office, John has gifted Akshay a high-end motorbike.
Having first worked together seven years ago, in Garam Masala, the two actors have become very good friends. John Abraham had apparently promised Akshay Kumar that if their third film together works well, he would buy him an expensive bike.
We heard that it was during the shooting of their second film, Desi Boyz in London that John discovered Akshay's interests in bikes. "It was after John got his own motorcycle transported from Mumbai to London for the shoot that he learnt about Akshay sharing similar interest in two-wheelers. A few months later, John promised to gift Akshay a bike to celebrate their success (of their third film) together," recalls our source close to the hunky actor.
John 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." About his choice of the present for his buddy, the actor says, "I love motorcycles and so does Akshay. So I thought the best thing for me to gift him is something we both love. So I chose a Harley Davidson."
Describing the bike, John said, "Akshay likes black colour for motorcycles, and I also believe black is beautiful. So I've chosen this colour for his bike."
Interestingly, the registration is pending since Akshay wants a specific license plate number for his bike. John added, "Akshay wants a special number. Hopefully, the procedure will be completed soon, so the bike can be delivered to him."
