Varun Dhawan Puts on Helmet for Bike Ride Following Amitabh Bachchan, Anushka Sharma Incidents

When he was recently seen riding his bike through Mumbai's busy streets while wearing a helmet, Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan made headlines and garnered fans.

This straightforward act of following safety precautions has drawn a lot of attention, particularly in light of recent occurrences involving well-known figures like Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka Sharma. Varun Dhawan's deliberate choice to put safety first conveys a strong message to his followers and the general public, emphasising the significance of abiding by traffic laws and safeguarding oneself while on the road.

Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka Sharma recently made headlines for riding a motorbike. They were praised for forgoing cars in favour of bicycles, but now they are in difficulty. The two stars could be seen seated on the pillon seats without their helmets. The Mumbai Police has noted this and informed the traffic section of the development.

Two motorbike drivers received fines from the Mumbai Police for not wearing helmets while taking Bollywood actors Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka Sharma on city streets.

“Amitabh and Anushka both have been fined through their riders for bike rides without helmets on Mumbai roads,” a senior police official informed.After facing criticism on social media for not wearing helmets while riding bikes, penalties were imposed in two separate cases involving Bollywood celebrities.

Amitabh Bachchan, known as the Shahenshah of Bollywood, shared a photo of himself riding pillion on a stranger's two-wheeler to reach his shooting location. Anushka Sharma was also spotted riding a bike after encountering a roadblock.

Netizens expressed their dissatisfaction with both incidents, questioning why the celebrities were not wearing helmets. In response, the Mumbai police posted printouts of the penalties imposed on the drivers of the vehicles involved, highlighting the violation of helmet-wearing regulations.

As per the Motor Vehicles Act, riding a two-wheeler without a helmet is considered a violation, and both the rider and the pillion rider are required to wear helmets. In this case, the actor was fined Rs. 1,000 for not wearing a helmet. However, the actress and the actor's personal assistant (the rider) received an e-challan for Rs. 10,500, as they were found to have violated multiple traffic regulations in addition to not wearing helmets.
