A friend in need is a friend indeed. And John Abraham with his recent deed has just proved how good a friend he was to Akshay Kumar. John bailed the Khiladi Kumar out at a media conference by lending him his mean machine.Akshay was all set to address the media at Filmcity Studios for his upcoming reality show Khatron Ke Khiladi. While it was planned that the actor will make his entry in a car, at the last minute, Kumar changed his mind and wanted to enter riding his bike instead.However, his bike, not too happy with the renewed plans, decided to throw up a few mechanical problems. Troubled, Akki called up his friend and Desi Boyz co-star John Abraham.
Now, John, we all know has a penchant for two wheelers. Out of his assortment, he happily sent one for his friend instantly. This, it may be recalled, is the same John who had once said to the media, "I love motorcycles, I am married to them and I have had a honeymoon period with them. I don't let anyone sit on my bikes or touch them."In fact, even his girlfriend (now, ex-girlfriend), Bipasha Basu was not allowed to damage his bikes. "Bipasha doesn't like sitting on my bike because I am very passionate and possessive about my bike.
When she sits, I keep saying 'I hope you don't leave a scratch on the bike and all that', so that's why she prefers a car to sitting behind me in a bike," John had told reporters in Delhi during an event, way back in 2009. But for a friend like Akshay, John did not seem to think even twice.A source from the unit said, "It was a well rehearsed act. Akshay was supposed to recite the Gayatri Mantra and then make his grand entry in a car. However, in the afternoon, he decided that he would make his entry in a bike instead.So, he called his staff and asked them to send his bike to Filmcity. He was informed that there was some technical issue with his bike. So, Akshay was stuck and didn't know what to do. That's when he decided to call his buddy John Abraham. John immediately agreed and in no time the bike was with him."When contacted John Abraham said, "Yes Akshay did call me and I sent my bike. I immediately asked my man Friday Chiru to pick up the bike from Bandra and give it to Akshay at Filmcity."So, John did finally, part with his bike. For once. Wonder what his ex Bipasha has to say to that.
