Big B all for traffic safety
Bollywood megastar Amitabh Bachchan is willing to join hands with Mumbai Traffic Police for a road safety initiative. At the inauguration of the 28th Road Safety Week recently, the actor said: “I want to offer my services to Mumbai Traffic Police. I’ve been saying this for many years that if my face and voice can sell Maggi noodles, why can’t I do something good for the city?”
Earlier, Big B has taken part in social awareness campaigns for Swachh Bharat Mission, Hepatitis B and Gujarat Tourism. He also fronted a polio eradication programme.
Talking about how he deals with those who break traffic rules, Amitabh said: “I often see that even if there is a red signal, people break the rule. If anybody does it in front of me, I wait until it becomes green, catch the car and try to convince him that he has done a wrong. They express regret, but ultimately they ask me for a selfie.”
