By and large, it’s a man thing to own a powerful two wheeler, unmindful of the fact that he could be owning some of the latest high end four wheelers. Many of our Kollywood celebrities own a powerful bike which they sometimes ride on the Chennai roads, albeit completely covering themselves with protective gear including helmets. This works for their safety and also ensures that fans don't identify them and form crowds. Arya, Dhanush and Jayam Ravi are some of the prominent Tamil stars who own a swanky two wheeler.
Now, Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi has also joined this list. He is fond of vintage bikes and he owns a collection of them at home. We are not sure if he uses them on the Chennai streets though! Recently, he bought an expensive BMW G3 10 GS bike which costs around 4 lakhs rupees. This is the latest addition to the fleet he already has at home, which includes a 1974 model Jawa, a Yamaha RX 100 and a Triumph Bonneville Classic.
The interesting feature about his recent possession is that the Rummy actor has managed to get a special number plate that denotes his year of birth - which is 1979. His number plate for the new bike reads TN01 BH 1979. Sources close to the actor tell us, “Yes, Vijay Sethupathi was very keen to have his year of birth as the number plate and he got it too, after paying the extra cost for it.” Happy riding Sethupathi!
