Actor Dulquer Salmaan and Sonam Kapoor were called out by Mumbai Police last week for engaging in unsafe driving, after the actress shared a video of what appeared like Dulquer using his phone while driving. The Twitter page for the force tweeted to the actors calling out their carelessness in a now deleted tweet. Sonam however, corrected the police, stating the car was actually being towed by a truck. “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.”

Mumbai Police however, 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.” It was Salmaan's turn to justify the video. He tweeted, “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. #notaweirdo”

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.”
