Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan star together in The Zoya Factor.

If you flout traffic rules in Mumbai, the entire wrath of the police comes cascading down on you whether you are a celeb or ‘regular folk’. Varun Dhawan is a star who knows this well and now The Zoya Factor cast -- Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan-- got a taste of it too. The Mumbai Police called him out for engaging in unsafe driving, after Sonam shared a video of what appeared like Dulquer using his phone while driving.

Sonam, however corrected the police on the social media and mentioned that the car was actually being towed by a truck. She tweeted in his defence, “We weren’t driving we were rigged on a truck.. but I’m glad you guys are concerned.. I hope and I know you show the same interest in regular folk as well! Thanks for taking care! #Reelvsreal @dulQuer.”

 

The Mumbai Police deleted the video but replied, “We agree with you @sonamakapoor ! Quite a ‘weirdo’ to try such stunts while driving and putting the lives of fellow drivers at risk too! We don’t quite approve of these even in ‘reel’ life. #NotDone.” In another tweet, they wrote, ”For us, No Mumbaikar is ‘regular’ they are all ‘special’! And we are equally concerned about them all. Glad to know your safety wasn’t ‘rigged’. @sonamakapoor.”



Salmaan later justified his side of the story, “Would appreciate it if you had checked some facts before tweeting this. In fact @MumbaiPolice helped us with permissions and traffic management during the shoot and were present the whole time. In my next tweet attaching the video I was shooting. #notawierdo.”

 

He added, “@MumbaiPolice The car was rigged to a low loader truck which was also the camera rig. I couldn’t steer or drive the car even if I wanted to. Also this particular car cannot steer itself.” He also shared a video captured by him to justify his side of the story.
