Mumbai police called out Bollywood ‘youth icon’ Varun Dhawan for flouting traffic rules by posing for a selfie with a fan while stuck in traffic.
The police shared a picture on social media in which Varun can be seen leaning out of his car to click a selfie with a fan, who was sitting in a rickshaw parked next to his car. The Judwaa 2 actor does not seem to be wearing seat belt in the picture.
In a tweet, Mumbai police shared: “We expected better from a responsible Mumbaikar and youth icon like you,’ wrote Mumbai Police, also adding that the actor should expect an ‘e-challan’ or a fine soon.”
Reacting to this, Varun issued an apology. He wrote: “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.”
The Mumbai police then posted: “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”
