The Mumbai Police has publicly lambasted Varun Dhawan on Twitter and fined him for reaching out to a fan and taking a selfie while sitting in his auto. You have risked your life, your admirer's [life] and a few others.

Varun Dhawan was in for a surprise today (Thursday) when the Mumbai Police slapped him with an e-challan for flouting traffic rules. As Per Media Reports Varun who was roaming in city had his auto stopped during a traffic signal where an excited fan asked him for a selfie together. "We expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar and a youth icon like you!" The Mumbai Police did too and was quick to issue an e-challan to Varun.

Mumbai Police replied to Varun Dhawan in their true inimitable style. "My apologies, Our cars weren't moving since we were at a traffic signal", adding that he did not want to "hurt the sentiment of a fan" and promised to be careful next time. The fan was obviously thrilled and mid-day photographer Satej Shinde, who, serendipitously, found himself at the same traffic signal snapped the moment. "...but next time I'll keep safety in mind and won't encourage this", he tweeted.

But "with great power comes great responsibility" and the Mumbai police just gave the actor a reminder of this saying.

Even Varun Dhawan has accepted his mistake and said apologies to the Mumbai Police. The Judwaa 2 actor does not seem to be wearing seat belt in the picture.

Varun will next be seen in Shoojit Sircar's "October" and Sharat Katariya's "Sui Dhaaga" alongside Anushka Sharma.
