Mid-day on Thursday had featured two pictures of actor Varun Dhawan and a fan together on a busy Mumbai road. The official handle of Mumbai Police tweeted, "These adventures surely work on the silver screen, but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai!"
But "with great power comes great responsibility" and the Mumbai police just gave the actor a reminder of this saying.
Replying to the Mumbai Police's post, Varun apologised for the offence and posted, "My apologies".
The actor extended his apologies on Twitter to Mumbai police and said that the cars were stationary at a traffic signal when the photos were clicked. You have risked your life and that of your admirers and few others. In the first of the two pictures, she is seen taking a picture of Varun, seated in his vehicle, from her autorikshaw.
"We expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar and youth icon like you!"
The actor was seen clicking a selfie with a woman in an auto while he was being driven in his vehicle.
Varun Dhawan is the current heartthrob and is known for obliging to his fans' demands.
Varun is now shooting for Shoojit Sircar's October and will be seen opposite Anushka Sharma in Sui Dhaaga and Remo D'Souza's ABCD 3. An e-challan has been sent to the actor's home and he got off lightly this time, Varun was told.
The "Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania" star responded back with a honest aplogy and said that he would keep safety in mind and never encourage this.
Mumbai Police's stern tweet to the Judwaa 2 star is winning social media for its absolutely un-starstruck tone. "Next time, we will be harsher", the tweet read. The actor is now busy with his upcoming films October and Sui Dhaaga.
