Bollywood star hero Aamir Khan has purchased a 150cc Bajaj motorcycle which is made of the scrap metal of INS Vikrant, India’s first aircraft carrier.
The vehicle was handed over to Aamir Khan at his residence in Mumbai by Mr. Rajiv Bajaj, Managing Director of Bajaj Auto.
Aamir Khan was inspired to buy the Bajaj V15 when he learnt that it contains metal from INS Vikrant. It was customized for Aamir, and the initial A is embossed on the fuel tank.
Aamir, who is known for his passion towards national causes, said in a statement, “The V is a special bike, and I wouldn’t compare it with anything else. It has a piece of history ingrained into it. For me, it’s a proud moment to own a piece of metal from INS Vikrant which was the military pride of India for decades.”
INS Vikrant was the first aircraft carrier of the Indian Navy. It was decommissioned in January 1997 after years of distinguished service.
