Varun Dhawan gets E-challan for clicking selfie with fan on Mumbai road

Varun Dhawan
You see, Mumbai Police spares nobody! What seemed like a sweet gesture for Varun Dhawan turned out into a serious issue, eventually leaving him with a strict warning from the Mumbai Police. It so happened that on a regular day, Varun was travelling to work in his car when a female fan spotted him midway and pleaded him for a selfie. A sweetheart that he is, Varun couldn’t resist but oblige to this request and went out of his way to literally bend out of his car window and click a selfie with the fan girl who was seated in an auto-rickshaw on the nearby lane. It even happened to capture this moment, the picture which has been doing the rounds of the internet, ever since. However, Mumbai Police is very disappointed with Varun after seeing this incident.

Taking up to Twitter, Mumbai Police has tweeted Varun’s picture along with a strict warning that reads, “.@Varun_dvn These adventures surely work on D silver screen but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai! U have risked ur life,ur admirer’s & few others. V expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar & youth icon like U! An E-Challan is on d way 2 ur home. Next time, V will B harsher.”

Varun could have ignored this and dealt with the issue privately like how many other celebs prefer doing it. But he decided to issue a public apology instead and ascertain he would never repeat this act again. He replied to Mumbai Police 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.
