Where everything fails, you can be sure that public embarrassment will work. Maybe that’s why the Mumbai Police called out actor Varun Dhawan on Twitter for flouting traffic rules by taking a selfie with a fan. About half an hour ago, Mumbai Police shared a picture on Twitter which shows Varun Dhawan leaning out of his car to click a selfie with a fan sitting in the auto rickshaw next to him. He does not appear to be wearing a seat belt in the photo. Accompanying the picture was a sternly-worded warning for the Judwaa 2 star.
Look at the tweet of Mumbai police

‘We expected better from a responsible Mumbaikar and youth icon like you,’ wrote Mumbai Police, also adding that the actor should expect an ‘e-challan’ or a fine soon.
The Judwaa 2 actor was just obliging a fan but he has actually ended up with a challan. As pointed out by the police, this could have been dangerous and they have advised the Badrinath Ki Dulhania actor to never try such a stunt ever again. The tweet also said that a responsible Mumbaikar like him who is also treated like a youth icon must be setting an example with his actions.
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. https://t.co/MEJk56EksG

Varun replied 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.”
Varun can indulge in all the action scenes on the silver screen but looks like in real life, he will be treated like a regular citizen by the police officials.
