He’s playing cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni in an upcoming film. But that’s not the only similarity that actor Sushant Singh Rajput shares with his dear friend Dhoni. The two are also bike enthusiasts, and Sushant tells us that they have similar stories to narrate about how they bought their first bike.
“Dhoni is also extremely passionate about bikes, just like me. I was surprised to know that even he struggled hard to buy his first bike. When two bike lovers start discussing bikes, be sure that it will be a long conversation which we have had many,” says Sushant, who loves vrooming about on his mean machines. “Even though my schedule does not allow me to ride my bike often in Mumbai, I don’t miss a chance to ride it whenever I can,” he adds.

Both Dhoni and Rajput bought their first bike after saving money doing double shifts. While Captain Cool has a good collection of bikes — and so does Rajput — the latter owns a BMW K1300, which he loves more than his car. “Sushant’s first bike was a second-hand Honda CBR, which he bought after working overtime. He wanted to have a bike of his own ever since his college days, so he was very excited when he bought his first,” says a source.
“Rajput confirms: “In my college days, I started taking tuitions to be able to afford a second-hand bike which I was very proud of. Even though I’m very attached to my new bike, the first one will always remain very special.”
