The Mumbai Police on Thursday issued a fine to actor Varun Dhawan for taking a selfie with a fan from his car and warned him to avoid such antics in future.
The actor has issued an apology.
The official Twitter handle of Mumbai Police shared pictures of Dhawan leaning out of his car’s window and taking a selfie with a female fan who is seen travelling in a rickshaw.
Addressing the issue, the police stated: “Varun Dhawan these adventures surely work on the silver screen, but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai. You have risked your life, your admirer’s and few others. We expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar [resident] and youth icon like you!”
They added that an electronic fine has been issued and they would be harsher next time.
Dhawan apologised for his behaviour in response, saying: “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.”
Dhawan was last seen on screen in Judwaa 2 alongside Taapsee Pannu and Jacqueline Fernandez.
