Mumbai(EMS). Actors Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka Sharma have had to deal with riding a bike without a helmet. After receiving complaints from social media users, Mumbai Police has started action against them. Significantly, both were recently seen riding different bikes without helmets. Amitabh took a lift from a fan to reach his place of work on Monday, while Anushka Sharma rode a bike with her bodyguard to reach the shooting location early after the road jam. In both the situations neither Amitabh and Anushka were wearing helmets and neither was the person riding the bike.
On his Instagram account, Amitabh Bachchan thanked an unknown person for helping him get out of the jam and reach the shoot on time. In the picture, Amitabh is seen sitting on the back of a motorcycle. Many in the film fraternity praised Bachchan’s decision to accompany the bike rider, while some social media users asked why both Bachchan and the bike rider were not wearing helmets.
One person wrote, ‘Where is the helmet sir’. Another tagged the Mumbai Police and wrote, ‘Both the rider and the previous rider are without helmets. Mumbai Police please take note!’ To this the Mumbai Police immediately reacted and said, ‘We have shared the matter with the traffic branch.’ Similarly, when a video of Anushka Sharma riding a bike surfaced on social media, a user tagged Mumbai Police and wrote, ‘Mumbai Police no helmet?’ In response, the Mumbai Police informed that the traffic police has been informed about the same. The official Twitter handle of the Mumbai Traffic Police was also tagged in both the tweets.
