Actress Aditi Rao Hydari criticised the lack of discipline on the roads in the city. While her opinions would have been seconded by many, the actress’ team forgot to walk the talk when her driver took a shortcut to reach a particular gate of a mall and was stopped by the police.
“Her car was coming from Radisson and took a wrong turn at the Centre Stage Mall T-point. They should have gone straight but the driver took the shortcut. I stopped the car and asked the driver to show his license when people sitting in another car stepped out and told me, ‘Celebrity hain, jaane dijiye, Rs 10,000-20,000 le kar mamla dafa kariye.’ Par maine kaha challan to katna padega aur challan keval Rs 700 ka hai, apko zyada paise kyun dene hain,” Traffic Inspector Dharmendra Yadav told.
Mr Yadav alleged that Ms Hydari walked off with her team after the car was stopped.
“Then they made a call to DLF mall’s management and they also made a request to not stop the car. I think she had to go to gate number 6 and the driver took the wrong turn. While the issue was still being discussed, Aditi Rao Hydari stepped out of the car and walked towards the mall with her team. We have seized the driver’s papers. I didn’t know that she was a celebrity. Main unko nahin pehchanta tha,” Mr Yadav told
