Police fine Varun Dhawan for taking 'dangerous selfie' with a fan


Recently, actor Varun Dhawan got into trouble with the Mumbai Police after he obliged a fan with a selfie in the middle of a road.

This is exactly what happened when Varun Dhawan was seen clicking a selfie with a fan sitting in an autorickshaw right next to his vehicle. In its message, they called out the actor for risking his life, his "admirer's and few others". "He took her phone and took the selfie himself".

Meanwhile, there is a divide on a social media as the Dhavan was stuck in a traffic and the auto was not moving at all.

The image in the tweet shows that the vehicle and auto-rickshaw that Varun and his fan were in were stationary, as he explained in his tweet. V expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar & youth icon like U! The police then shared the picture on their Twitter handle and informed Dhawan that an e-challan had been issued in his name.

He is the first Bollywood actor to be censured publicly by the Mumbai police like this. Our cars weren't moving since we were at a traffic signal and I didn't want to hurt the sentiment of a fan.

Mumbai police in a post on Twitter also warned the star that from next time the police would be harsher on him. He is not seen wearing a seat belt in the picture. Unless of course, they're taking seriously what your mum spent most of her time telling you as a child: Don't lean out of the freaking auto. Mumbai Police, who is known for being extremely proactive and witty on social media, responded to the actor's apology in no time, in their usual inimitable style.
