Mumbai: Mumbai Traffic Police brooks no nonsense when it comes to penalising traffic violators- even if they are beloved actors like Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka Sharma.
The two were recently seen in separate incidents without helmets while pillion riding on bikes in the city.
On Sunday, Big B dropped a picture in which he was seen taking a bike ride with a stranger. “Thank you for the ride buddy .. don’t know you .. but you obliged and got me on time to location of work .. faster and in avoidance of the unsolvable traffic jams .. thank you capped , shorts and yellowed T-shirt owner,” he captioned the post. In the picture, neither Amitabh, nor the rider wore helmets.
On the other hand, Anushka Sharma also ditched her hemet while riding a bike with one of her staff members. Several paps shared the video on their social media accounts.
After these photos went viral on social media, Twitterati reached out to Mumbai Police for taking action against the stars. Responding to some of them, the Mumbai Police tweeted, “We have shared this with traffic branch.”
