Mumbai: In order to perfect Imran Khan’s riding skills on reel, filmmaker Vishal Bhardwaj has gifted a brand new bike to him for their next film, Maatru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola. The bike is a Royal Enfield 500 cc and is estimated to be around R 2 lakh.

It is learnt that Imran's character in the film is required to ride a heavy-duty motorcycle in several scenes. Our source associated with Bhardwaj's film says, "Vishal arranged to acquire a brand new Royal Enfield 500 cc motorcycle for Imran, so he can perfect his riding skills for his role."

Imran apparently was very busy promoting his recent film and did not get a chance to improve his riding skills then. The source adds, "Imran had been pre-occupied with the promotions of Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu.

And soon after its release, he had to start shooting for Maatru Ki Bijli Ka Mandola. So he had not got any time to enjoy his film's success, forget acquainting himself with riding a motorcycle."

The actor confirms practicing his skills on the bike. He says, "I was learning how to ride the Bullet in the middle of the shoot."
