Malayalam actor Manju Warrier seems to have developed a passion for motorcycles after becoming friends with Tamil superstar Ajith Kumar. On Friday, she revealed that she rode home a brand new BMW GS 1250 motorcycle to nurture the newly-mint adventure bike enthusiast in her. She also thanked her Valimai co-star Ajith for giving her the courage to follow her heart.
"A tiny step of courage is always a good place P.S : Got to go a looooong way before I become a good rider, so if you see me fumbling on the roads, please be patient with me Thank you for being an inspiration to many like me #AK #AjithKumar sir," she tweeted while sharing the video of herself taking the delivery of her new motorcycle.
After completing the shoot for Thunivu, Manju went on a cross-country bike tour with Ajith. Last September, she shared photos of her road tip on her Instagram page noting that it was the first time she has travelled "thousands of miles" on a two-wheeler.
"Huge thanks to our Super Star Rider #AjithKumar #AK Sir! Being an avid traveller, I've had the opportunity of travelling throusands of miles on four wheelers. This is the first time I'm doing a tour on a two wheeler. Huge thanks to Adventure Riders India for inviting me over to join this wonderful group of passionate bikers. And it was an honour to be introduced to @suprej and @sardar_sarfaraz_khan of Adventure Riders India by Ajith Sir! Thank you Sir! Lots of love!(sic)," she said earlier.
Ajith's passion for motorsport is no secret. A professional racer, he keeps his passion for adventures alive by frequently going on motorcycle tours. It has become a ritual of sorts for the star to take such tours after finishing shooting for a film.
Manju played Ajith's love interest in Thunivu. Written and directed by H Vinoth, the movie became one the highest-grossing films of Tamil cinema this year.
