In the video, both were seen without necessary protective gears. Since then Vivek has been receiving a lot of criticism on social media, as the actor didn’t just flout traffic rules but also ignored safety precautions during an ongoing pandemic.
On February 19, a FIR was lodged against the actor in Mumbai’s Juhu police station, for not wearing a mask. The Santacruz Division generated Rs 500 e-challan against Oberoi. The challan was issued on Friday at 7.02 pm by Assistant Inspector Nandkishore Jadhav.
On Saturday, PM Narendra Modi actor tweeted his reaction to the fine imposed on him. He acknowledged his mistake and said, “Pyaar humein kis mod pe le aaya! Nikle they nayi bike par hum aur hamari jaan, bina helmet ke kat gaya chalaan! Riding without a helmet? Mumbai police will do a checkmate! Thank u @mumbaipolice for making me realise that safety is always most important. Be safe, Wear a helmet & a mask.”
