This was followed by another tweet. “Where is the police? I think they are all inside the theatre watching #ismartshankar.”
The Cyberabad police retweeted with a witty comment. “Thanks, @RGVzoomin for reporting Traffic Violations. We expect the same responsibility in actually following the Traffic rules yourself. By the way, why only theaters?, Traffic Police see a lot of drama, circus-like below on roads every minute,” the police tweet said tagging the video of Varma and two others on the bike.
The police also posted the Rs 1,335 traffic ticket (challan), issued in the name of B. Dilip Kumar, in whose name the two-wheeler is registered, for violations.
