FIR filed against Vivek Oberoi for riding bike without mask on Valentine's Day


On the eve of Valentine’s Day, the actor-producer decided to treat his wife, Priyanka Alva, to a rather exciting surprise. Teasing her, he introduced her to his “new girlfriend”. Much to her surprise, he took her for a joyride on his new bike at midnight on the empty streets of Mumbai. At a petrol station, Vivek also greeted and met his fans and clicked selfies with them. 

However, this did not go down very well Netizens as they slammed the actor. He has been receiving backlash on social media because he didn't just flout traffic rules, the actor also ignored safety precautions during an ongoing pandemic by not wearing a mask. Netizens said that Vivek's action "sends a wrong message to the youth hence he should be fined for the same." Mumbai Police took action against the actor and an E-Challan was generated against him by the Santacruz division.
