Actor Varun Dhawan got himself into trouble after leaning out of his car to click a selfie with a fan who was travelling in an autorickshaw on a busy street. Acting quickly, the Mumbai police booked him for violating traffic rules.

The issue came to light when a daily published a picture of Dhawan going about his stunt with the fan. The police then shared the picture on their Twitter handle and informed Dhawan that an e-challan had been issued in his name. 

The swift action against a celebrity was applauded by Twitter users and the post went viral in no time. Dhawan, on his part, apologized for his act. In an official statement, he said, “My apologies. Our cars weren’t moving since we were at a traffic signal and I didn’t want to hurt the sentiments of a fan, but next time I’ll keep safety in mind and won’t encourage this.” 

Replying to this statement, the police put the actor in a further quandary by questioning the presence of a photographer on the street to capture the moment.
