It was only yesterday when two incidents were reported where common citizens had to bear the brunt of the VIP culture. While people are still debating on the issue looks like Mumbai Police has set the right example.

A publication had posted an image of the Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan taking a selfie with a fan on Mumbai roads, following which Mumbai Police warned the actor on Twitter. The cops also told him to expect a challan anytime soon and warned him against any such irresponsible move in the future.


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 harsherMumbai Police twitter handle read.

The picture shows Varun Dhawan without a seatbelt leaning out of his car to take a selfie with a fan who was sitting in the auto.

Their tweet has already been retweeted over 5,000 times now. Later, Dhawan responded to the tweet with an apology

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”

While everyone is applauding the action taken by Mumbai Police few Twitterati have some new suggestions to offer.

On a serious note, the gesture by Mumbai Police really sets an example for those who believe they are above the law. Kudos cops!
