Reacting to the same, Vivek Oberoi gave a quirky response and even lauded the Mumbai Police for their alertness. “Pyaar humein kis mod pe le aaya! Nikle they nayi bike par hum aur hamari jaan, bina helmet ke kat gaya chalaan! 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.”

Viveo was also found violating the pandemic prohibitory orders, “The actor violated the traffic rules for riding without a helmet. He was also found not wearing a mask,” said the police.
