Hrithik Roshan has agreed to join hands with the Delhi Police to help them curb the instances of drunken driving in the capital, by spreading awareness about the subject.
A source close to the actor reveals that Hrithik was approached by the police officials regarding this campaign last week. “This is part of their (Delhi police) initiative on road safety, and Hrithik was more than happy to endorse the idea,” says the source, adding, “Educating people about the ills of driving under influence is their primary concern, but spreading awareness about other means of road safety is also part of their agenda.”

It was a big team, so the security of every member was a big concern. But they were taken care of,” adds the source.
