Traffic jams in Mumbai are a regular affair during the monsoon and if you are on your way to catch a flight, things can get messy. The latest celebrity to get a taste of the truth is singer and Minister of State for Environment, Forest and Climate Change, Babul Supriyo.

On Tuesday afternoon, Supriyo’s car got stuck in traffic while he was heading for the airport. However, instead of sitting and waiting in his car, the union minister took an auto-rickshaw - the lifeline of thousands of Mumbaikars, and managed to reach the airport on time.

Not only did Supriyo take an auto-rickshaw to reach the airport, it seems like he thoroughly enjoyed his ride. He clicked a video and shared it on Twitter too. During the ride, he recalled his struggling days as a singer in the ‘90s. Further, he also sang the Kishore Kumar hit, “Main hoon ghoda, yeh hai gaadi, meri rickshaw sabse nirali” while enjoying his journey to the airport.

People dropped all sorts of comments on the post. Here’s how they reacted:

Shared on September 17, the video has gathered over 13,000 views - and still counting. Additionally, it also gathered more than 2,000 likes.

What do you think of the video?
