Railroad officials say video shared by actor on social media sends wrong message to country
India’s Northern Railway on Wednesday accused Bollywood actor Sonu Soud of being on the footboard of a moving train, calling it “dangerous”.
Northern Railway called him a role model for the people of India and said the videos he shared on social media would send the wrong message to the country.
“Dear @SonuSood, you are a role model for millions of people in your country and around the world. Navigating stairs on trains is dangerous.This kind of video can send the wrong message to your fans. Don’t do this! Enjoy! Have a smooth and safe journey,” Northern Railway tweeted.
The tweet, which came after Sood uploaded a video clip of the train journey on Dec. 13, shows him grabbing a pole and sitting on the footboard of the door as the train appears to be moving fast. can see the
Mumbai Railway Police also warned him that it was dangerous and asked him not to actually do this stunt.
“@SonuSood traveling on a footboard could be a source of ‘entertainment’ in movies rather than in real life. Let’s follow all safety guidelines and promise ‘Happy New Year’ to everyone,” GRP Mumbai tweeted.
