Shahid Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra visit Jaihind College to promote 'Teri Meri Kahaani' at Churchgate
Abhishek has a secret passion. Besides wife Aishwarya and daughter Aaradhya, that is. Abhishek loves fast cars, especially those that burn up the race tracks. Unlike his contemporaries from the film fraternity who rush to the Grand Prix races every year, Abhishek has chosen to attend a far more elitist race event.
He left on Tuesday night for the 24 Hours Of Le Mans car racing event to be held on 16th June in the scenic town of Le Mans in France.
Apparently, Abhishek had been planning to attend this 80-year old annual racing event for some years now.
"But he never got around to it until now. Every year something or the other would come up putting a roadblock in the way of his secret fantasy. This year Abhishek was determined to make it, come what may. He virtually stayed awake nights to complete the dubbing of Bol Bachchan so that he would get time off for a few days before he returns for the promotion of the film," says a friend of Abhishek's.
Interestingly, Le Mans is the only car racing event in the world where the cars are on the tracks uninterrupted for 24 hours.
"Abhishek will be glued non-stop to the tracks for 24 hours. He's as excited as a schoolboy about realizing one of his secret dreams."
Abhishek left on Tuesday night. He returns at the end of the week.
Akshay Kumar turns back to television to promote his new film Khatta Meetha. He plays Sachin Tichkule in Sasural Genda Phool and takes care of the roads of Chandni Chowk in Delhi.
