Aditi Rao Hydari’s car stopped by cops for violating traffic rules


Bollywood actress Aditi Rao, who was in the National Capital Region (NCR) to attend an event at Noida’s DLF Mall, was reportedly stopped by cops after her driver took an illegal shortcut to get to a mall.

The incident took place on Saturday, May 14. The traffic cops have seized the driver’s papers and he even allegedly attempted to use the actress’ celebrity status to be let off, a leading daily reported.  

Narrating the incident to the daily, Traffic Inspector Dharmendra Yadav said, “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?"

"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,” inspector Yadav added.

While the issue was still being discussed, Aditi stepped out of the car and walked towards the mall with her team.

Meanwhile, when Aditi was asked about the incident, she said that the city needs to work on its traffic condition.

"Noida is beautiful, the infrastructure, the malls and the facilities are up to the mark. I hope they do something about the traffic, though. It is really bad. NCR has the biggest roads but there are huge jams. Somehow, commuting is most difficult in Noida. I hope they do something about it. It was quite difficult to reach here today," the 29-year-old actress said.

Aditi, who graduated from Delhi University, moved to Mumbai after she got her Bollywood break with Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra's ‘Delhi 6’. She was last seen in ‘Wazir’ opposite Farhan Akhtar and played the younger version of Tabu’s character in Abhishek Kapoor’s ‘Fitoor’. She will be next seen in Mani Ratnam’s Tamil project Kuruthi Pookkal.
