Varun Dhawan was recently fined by the Mumbai police for violating traffic rules. The Judwaa 2 actor was caught taking a selfie with a fan amid traffic. The ‘Badrinath ki Dulhaniya’ actor was seen leaning out of his car to take a selfie with a female fan sitting in an auto rikshaw, next to his car.
An e-challan of Rs 600 was sent to the actor’s registered address with the Regional Transport Office. The Mumbai police posted the picture on their official twitter handle and tagged Varun Dhawan too. In their tweet, the police also mentioned how dangerous it would have been for both Varun and his fan while trying to take a selfie. The tweet also pointed out how Varun’s actions influence his fans, who could hurt themselves while trying to copy him. Since Varun is a youth icon, the police advised Varun to be more responsible and said they would take sterner action if the incidence is repeated in future. Also See – Salman Khan Cars Collection

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
