Amitabh Bachchan reacts on his photo on bike after Mumbai Police takes note.
The legendary Indian actor Amitabh Bachchan responded to the allegations of breaking traffic rules after a photo of him went viral in which he was seen riding pillion on a motorbike and neither the rider nor he was wearing the helmet.
Some time back, Amitabh Bachchan posted that image on his Instagram account with the caption, “Thank you for the ride buddy .. don’t know you .. but you obliged and got me on time to location of work .. faster and in avoidance of the unsolvable traffic jams .. thank you capped , shorts and yellowed T – shirt owner”
Some online users tagged Mumbai Police in this regard and now after the matter has been noticed by the traffic police, Big B has revealed that in reality, he wasn’t going anywhere as he was just fooling around at a shooting location.
He wrote on his blog,
“The fact of the matter is that this is on location shoot on the street of Mumbai ..It is Sunday .. formal permission taken for shoot at a lane in Ballard Estate .. permission sought for Sunday because all offices are shut and there is no public or traffic ..One lane in the region BLOCKED off by Police permission for shoot .. the lane barely 30-40 meters ..
The dress I wear is my costume for the film ..And .. I am just fooling around by getting on the bike , of a crew member .. Not even moving anywhere, but giving the impression that I travelled to save time .. 🤣 ..But yes I would do it if there was a problem of punctuality .. and wear helmet and follow all the rules and regulations of the traffic guide lines ..
I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT DOES THIS .. had seen Akshay Kumar do this to get to location on time .. wore helmet etc., on the bike of his Security person .. no one could recognise .. and it was rapid and efficient .. and it worked well ..Thank you all for your concern and your care and love and your spanking me and trolling .. !!!”
Well, it’s great that the legendary actor has come clean on this matter.
