Varun Dhawan on Monday shared an endearing photo on his social media, where he was seen shaking a police officer's hand. Thanking them for fighting on the frontline amid Coronavirus pandemic, Varun with respect and admiration was seen exchanging smiles with the cop in the picture.
But a fan slammed Varun for 'setting a bad example' as he was holding the police officer's hand and violating social distancing. To this, the Kalank actor clarified that it was an old picture clicked 2 months back. Dhawan, however, did address him as an 'Idiot' but concluded his tweet by sending love to him.
