Manoj Bajpai averts major accident with his swift action

Acclaimed actor Manoj Bajpai was recently encountered an unexpected accident when his car almost hit a bike-borne couple, but his presence of mind averted a major accident which could have proved fatal.

Due to the pre-monsoon showers, the streets in Mumbai have become slippery and the ‘Aligarh’ actor was returning home in his car along with his manager. Though, Manoj was driving at a moderate speed, a couple on a speeding bike over took his car and fell ahead after losing balance.

Manoj’s car almost crashed into the couple on the fallen bike, but he quickly pulled the emergency brakes and stopped the car in the nick of time. The actors swift move and presence of mind saved two lives, or at least a major injury to them. Soon after, an ambulance came and took the couple to hospital for initial treatment.  

Recalling the incident, Manoj said, “It was a very bizzare incident and I am just glad that nobody was injured so badly. I was sick for few days, so had gone to the doctor. As my driver wasn’t there, I had opted to drive myself. These days it is a very important to make sure one drives safely, for yourself as well as people around you. I am completely fine and I would like to request everyone this monsoon season please be safe and take care.”
