Mumbai: Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan loves fast cars, especially those that burn up the race tracks. Unlike his contemporaries from the film fraternity, who rush to watch Grand Prix races, Abhishek chose to attend Le Mans 24 Hours - one of the oldest and elitist car race event.
He left Tuesday night for the event, to be held Saturday in the scenic town of Le Mans in France.
Abhishek had been planning to attend this 80-year-old annual racing event for some years now.
"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," said Abhishek`s friend.
"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," the friend added.
