Kunal Kemmu skips helmet. Mumbai Police shows him who's boss!
Actor Kunal Kemmu, known for 'Go Goa Gone,' 'Golmaal' and 'Kalyug,' has been fined Rs. 500 by Mumbai Police for not wearing a helmet while riding a bike. Interestingly, it was Kunal who first tweeted an apology after noticing his photo being circulated online. "We wish a regret could avert mishaps!" Mumbai Police tweeted an hour later, saying an e-challan had been issued!
The tweet that gained massive attention
Devoted fans question Mumbai Police's actions
Though Mumbai Police were applauded for their impartial attitude, netizens criticized them for punishing only celebs but not others indulging in similar acts. They also demanded proof that he was violating a rule. It was an MV Agusta Brutale superbike that belongs to brother-in-law Saif Ali Khan, and maybe he was just posing, they said.
But Mumbai Police puts its foot down
Kemmu gets challan but wins hearts
Despite the challan, Kemmu won fans over with his humility, rarely seen in Bollywood celebrities. "Simply loved your honesty for this," said @animeshbhatta01. "For this tweet only one word...RESPECT," posted @1248PLC. "It's very good to see you accepting your mistake," commented @palajay36.
Earlier, it was Varun Dhawan who earned Mumbai Police's wrath
Kunal acknowledged having received the challan, the payment of which is yet to be done. But he is not the first actor who got reprimanded by Mumbai Police. In November last year, actor Varun Dhawan got chided when he leaned halfway out of his car window without wearing a seat belt and clicked a selfie with a fan. He too apologized.
