Earlier today Mumbai Police issued a challan to actor Varun Dhawan for taking a selfie with a fan from his car and warned him to avoid such antics in future.

The official Twitter handle of Mumbai Police shared snapshots of a newspaper article featuring Varun pulling off the selfie stunt on the road. The actor is seen partly out of his car's window and taking a selfie with a female fan who is seen travelling in an auto rickshaw.

"Varun Dhawan these adventures surely work on the silver screen, but certainly not on the roads of Mumbai. You have risked your life, your admirer's and few others.

"We expect better from a responsible Mumbaikar and youth icon like you! An e-challan is on the way to your home. Next time, we will be harsher," the tweet read.

The actor was quick to apologise for his irresponsible behavior and tweeted, "My apologies Our cars weren’t moving since we were at a traffic signal and I didn’t want to hurt the sentiment of a fan but next time I’ll keep safety in mind and won’t encourage this."

Later, Mumbai Police appreciated Varun Dhawan for his prompt reply and spirit. "Quite a galactic coincidence for the photographer to be on the same signal to capture your gesture, in a good intent nevertheless risky. Leaning out even in a stationary vehicle can be distracting for others considering your popularity. Glad you took our message in d right spirit"

Of course, Mumbai Police schooling the Student of the Year was met with appreciation on the platform.

While some simply suggested Mumbai police take action against others for "breaking" laws.

While others wanted police to take action against Dhawan's acting.
