Congress candidate from Mumbai North Lok Sabha seat Urmila Matondkar on Tuesday posted an adorable picture of herself with her husband Mohsin Akhtar Mir sitting on a two-wheeler smiling.
She captioned the beautiful image saying: "Life is a Joy Ride with you, Mohsin by my side. Moment caught yesterday while visiting one of the booths." [sic]
While the picture reminded many fans of the iconic 'Hamara Bajaj' ad, a lot of them also trolled the actress for not strapping her helmet. One user wrote: "But make sure when you wear helmet, fix the loose ends of straps.", while the other said: "helmet works only when tied firmly!.", and the other commented: "Please lead by example. You should wear the helmet properly. Next time fasten the strap and be a good role model to your supporters" [sic]
