Varun Dhawan recently got into a dose of ‘Dishoom’ with the Mumbai Police. While it may not be a physical one, he still had to pay a price for it. An image of the actor leaning out of his car, in usual Mumbai traffic, to take a selfie with a fan got him into trouble with the authorities. Mumbai Police called out the actor for breaching traffic rules and lectured him on social media via their Twitter handle.
.@Varun_dvn These adventures surely work on D silver screen but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai! U have risked ur life,ur admirer’s & few others. V expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar & youth icon like U! An E-Challan is on d way 2 ur home. Next time, V will B harsher pic.twitter.com/YmdytxspGY— Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) November 23, 2017
The Badrinath Ki Dulhania hero had to pay a price for obliging the fan who was sitting in an auto-rickshaw and Varun ended up with a e-challan. It is also obvious from the image that Varun, sitting in the front passenger seat of the car is not wearing his seat-belt.Embarrassed by the fault, Varun offered an apology in a matter of minutes. Both Tweets have be shared over a few thousand times already.
My apologies 🙏 Our cars weren’t moving since we were at a traffic signal and I didn’t want to hurt the sentiment of a fan but next time I’ll keep safety in mind and won’t encourage this. https://t.co/MEJk56EksG— Varun Dhawan (@Varun_dvn) November 23, 2017
Quite a galactic coincidence for the photographer to be on the same signal to capture your gesture, in a good intent nevertheless risky. Leaning out even in a stationary vehicle can be distracting for others considering your popularity. Glad you took our message in d right spirit https://t.co/jKqosfH6V3— Mumbai Police (@MumbaiPolice) November 23, 2017
The Mumbai Police were glad that Shahid took the message in the right spirit even as they wondered how a photographer was present at the time of the selfie. On a serious note, Mumbai Police are right on their part. This act could has been dangerous and hence the cops have advised the Judwaa 2 actor to behave like a responsible youth icon and never try such a stunt ever again.Action scenes might look cool on the silver screen, but when it comes to real life, a celebrity will be treated just like a regular citizen.
