This Actor Jumped A Traffic Signal And Here’s What Happened Next

Breaking traffic rules can prove fatal. This Bollywood star jumped a traffic signal and here’s how the Mumbai Police dealt with him

Mumbai Police is keeping a keen eye on traffic rule offenders. And, on September 16, Sonu Sood was at the receiving end. The actor jumped a signal in Oshiwara and policemen in the area promptly caught hold of him. He was asked to pay a challan of Rs 500, which the actor did without an argument. Sonu also went ahead to click a selfie with the policeman concerned as a ‘Thank You’ gesture.

You may recall, in March, Kunal Kemmu received an e-challan for riding a Ducati Monster sportsbike without a helmet. However, he apologised for the mistake before getting slammed on social media. He wrote on Twitter, “I have seen this picture out there and honestly it’s very embarrassing given I love bikes and ride regularly and always with a helmet and some more gear but whether it’s a long ride or just next door a helmet should always be worn.apologies I don’t want to set the wrong example!”

However, despite an apology, Mumbai Police despatched an e-challan to the actor. The wrote, “You love bikes, we love every citizen’s safety. And we wish a regret could avert mishaps! Hope next time the realisation won’t be an afterthought! An e-challan has been dispatched.”

In November 2017, Varun Dhawan too got an earful from the Mumbai Police after a leading daily published a picture of him sitting in the front seat of a car and clicking a selfie with a fan in a rickshaw. The city police took to Twitter to thrash Varun for the act and wrote, .@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. The actor received an e-challan for the careless act.

Varun later apologised and said, “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.”
