Actor Aamir Khan became a proud owner of a 150cc motorcycle which contains the metal of India’s first aircraft carrier INS Vikrant. 

The Dhoom 3 star, 50, known for his passion towards social and national causes, was inspired to buy the V15 when he learnt that the Bajaj V contains metal from INS Vikrant. “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,” Aamir said in a statement.
