Sonam Kapoor slams naysayers for trolling Mumbai Police who'd called out Dulquer Salmaan for not being careful on road

Sonam Kapoor lands her 'The Zoya Factor' co-star Dulquer Salmaan in trouble with Mumbai Police..

Latest News

Sonam Kapoor recently posted a video of her 'The Zoya Factor' co-star Dulquer Salmaan using a mobile phone while sitting behind the driver's wheel in a car, and it seems like Mumbai Police did not take it lightly.
Taking to her Instagram stories, Sonam Kapoor posted a video in which her co-actor can be seen apparently driving a car with both his hands busy on his phone, instead of the steering wheel. Sitting next to him, Sonam can be heard saying "Weirdo."

Shortly after the clip was posted, Mumbai Police took to their twitter handle to give a piece of advice to the two. "We agree with you @sonamakapoor! Quite a weirdo to try such stunts while driving and putting the lives of fellow drivers at risk too! We don't quite approve of these even in reel life. #NotDone" the tweet read.

However, Sonam quickly came to Dulquer's rescue and clarified that contrary to what the Mumbai police interpreted, that the actor was not driving the car, in fact, they were "rigged on a truck". "We weren't driving we were rigged on a truck.. but I'm glad you guys are concerned.. I hope and I know you show the same interest in regular folk as well! Thanks for taking care!" she tweeted.

Dulquer too took to his Twitter account and shared his side of the story and a video as well that reveals that the two actors were in fact shooting for their film. Dulquer Salmaan, an established actor of the Malayalam Cinema, will be next seen opposite Sonam in the film The Zoya Factor

Looks like Mumbai Police soon realised their mistake and acknowledged the same. Sonam Kapoor then tweeted:

Soon, the netizens started calling out the Mumbai Police for wrongly accusing the two actors of not being careful while on the road and not checking facts before tweeting about the same. Sonam then asked the naysayers to be thankful to the police as they were just doing their job.

Dulquer made his Bollywood debut in 2018 with Irrfan Khan starrer Karwaan. His acting in the film was well received by the critics and so were his good looks by the ladies! Helmed by Abhishek Sharma, The Zoya Factor is an adaptation of Anuja Chauhan's 2008 novel.

The book revolves around a Rajput girl named Zoya Singh Solanki, an executive in an advertising agency, who meets the Indian Cricket Team as part of a project. Following an interesting turn of events, she ends up becoming a lucky charm for the team during the 2011 Cricket World Cup.
