Big B Amitabh Bachchan has clarified the viral photo of him riding without a helmet as the passenger on a stranger’s motorbike.
Amitabh Bachchan recently shared a photo of himself riding a pillion on a stranger’s motorbike on his Instagram account. He acknowledged the rider in his post and expressed gratitude for getting him to the shooting site in time. Social media completely exploded with the image. After a tree blocked the road not long after, Anushka Sharma was also spotted riding a bike to evade the gridlock. Amitabh Bachchan and Anushka Sharma were both caught riding bikes without helmets, according to internet users.
Anushka and Big B’s photos without helmets sparked responses from the public, and Mumbai traffic police responded. Mumbai Police tweeted, “We have shared this with traffic branch.” Amitabh Bachchan has since clarified the image, saying that he was actually only shooting on the street and not actually riding somewhere on the bike.
Amitabh Bachchan responded to the comments over not wearing a helmet in his most recent blog post by stating that he was filming on a Mumbai roadway with official clearance.
Amitabh Bachchan continued by saying that he was merely “fooling around” by riding a crew member’s bike, and that they weren’t actually going anywhere, just creating the idea that they were travelling quickly via bike.
