Count on Ajith Kumar to do the unthinkable in his inimitable style. The actor, whose Arrambam is to hit the screen in a few weeks’ time, undertook a bike journey from Chennai to Bangalore on his brand new BMW 1000 RR. The bike reportedly costs around Rs.24 lakhs. Ajith reportedly had put on a racing suit so as not to get recognized by his fans as it would have distracted his joy ride from Chennai to Bangalore.
Lover of racing bikes and cars and a racer as well, Ajith had always believed that his image as a star should not hamper his personal activities. Ajith is usually spotted in races abroad or in India , else spending his time by flying small aircraft and choppers at Acharapakkam.
Ajith tested his new bike on road, going around the city with his face covered in helmet. Feeling satisfied, he wanted to visit Bangalore by riding on the bike. Clad in race suit and helmet, Ajith and a couple of his friends traveled in separate bikes via Athur and Salem to Bangalore.
The trio stopped at a Road side Tea shop near Kumbakonam , and had Tea and snacks. Fans of the star, who were surprised to find their matinee idol on a bike and in their city, mobbed him and sought autographs. Politely obliging their requests, Ajith also had himself photographed with some of the fans and then left for Bangalore.
