Kunal Kemmu rides bike without helmet; Mumbai Police issues actor e-challan

The Mumbai Police has issued an e-challan to Bollywood actor Kunal Kemmu for violating traffic norms by riding a motorcycle without wearing a helmet.

The actor apologised for it and said he does not want to set a wrong example.

The e-challan was issued based on some pictures of the actor riding the two-wheeler while wearing a cap and not a helmet.

"@kunalkemmu You love bikes, we love every citizen's safety. And we wish a regret could avert mishaps! Hope next time the realisation won't be an afterthought! An e-challan has been dispatched," the Mumbai police said today on its official Twitter handle.

Kemmu, who has featured in films like Golmaal Again and Go Goa Gone, apologised on social media, saying that traffic rules should always be followed. "I have seen this picture out there and honestly it's very embarrassing given I love bikes and ride regularly and always with a helmet and some more gear but whether it's a long ride or just next door a helmet should always be worn. Apologies I don't want to set the wrong example (sic)," the actor tweeted.

A couple of years back, the Bombay High Court had made it compulsory for bike riders and those riding pillion to wear a helmet.

In November last year, actor Varun Dhawan had drawn the ire of the Mumbai Police after a daily carried his picture showing him clicking a selfie with a fan from his car while stuck in traffic.

The police had then issued a challan to the Judwaa 2 actor and warned him against repeating the offence.
