Sidharth Malhotra has a message for Delhiites: Have fun but drive responsibly. The actor who was shooting for his new film, Aiyaary at India Gate, took part in the road safety campaign by Delhi Traffic Police to raise awareness about anti-drunken driving and anti-stunt riding. “Delhi is my home town. This is a great step. It is going to be helpful for everyone. Anyone can be involved in road accident. Drunk and stunt driving must be avoided. It’s not just about us, it’s about our family and friends as well,” he said.

The actor also advised Delhiites to be stress free while driving. “Listen to Bollywood songs to reduce stress. Go and roam around but be responsible. You can easily call a cab and travel,” said the actor.

AK Singh, DCP, Traffic Police, said that as a youth icon, the actor can connect with people. “Youngsters often indulge in stunt biking and drunken driving, which is dangerous. We want Sidharth to spread this message.”

Students from various schools of Delhi also participated in the event and supported the cause. “We have a road safety club run by Delhi Traffic Police. It covers more than 100 schools. Several students who are a part of our initiatives joined us today. They all turned up at a very short notice and I would like to thank them,” said Singh.
