Actor Vivek Oberoi has been booked for riding a motorcycle without a mask on Valentines Day. His romantic ride on Valentines Day with wife Priyanka Alva did not end positively as the actor was fined by the traffic police for not wearing a helmet and an FIR was also filed against him for riding without a mask.
However, the actor reacted to this in the most fun way possible. Vivek Oberoi tweeted, “Pyaar humein kis mod pe le aaya! Nikle they nayi bike par hum aur hamari jaan, bina helmet ke kat gaya chalaan! (Love brought us to an unexpected place. My love and I went for a ride on our new bike but without a helmet, we got fined) Riding without a helmet? Mumbai police will do a checkmate! Thank u @MumbaiPolice for making me realise that safety is always most important. Be safe, Wear a helmet & a mask.”

According to news agency PTI, an FIR was registered against the actor at Juhu Police Station. The FIR was registered under IPC sections 188 (Disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) and 269 (Negligent act likely to spread infection of disease dangerous to life) along with provisions of the Maharashtra COVID -19 Precautionary Measures 2020 and the Motor Vehicles Act, the official said. Under both IPC sections 188 and 269, an offender can be punished with up to six months in jail or fine or both.
Vivek Oberoi was last seen on the screen playing the role of Narendra Modi in his biopic Prime Minister Narendra Modi. The movie was heavily criticized and was also a flop at the box office.
As the state of Maharashtra is witnessing an unprecedented surge in the number of novel coronavirus cases, the authorities have decided to ramp up the protective measures and the norms to keep battling the situation.
