The star had drawn flak for riding bike without one in his upcoming movie ‘Papanasam’.
With the compulsory helmet rule coming into force on July 1, actor Kamal Haasan urged two-wheeler riders to wear a helmet and drive safe.
At a press interaction few weeks earlier, Kamal Haasan was criticised for not wearing a helmet in a sequence in Papanasam where the actor is seen riding a two-wheeler with three other characters on the same bike.
Referring to criticism, the actor said, “Please wear a helmet while riding a two-wheeler. The argument usually is that we actors don’t wear helmet in the movies. The stunts performed on a pipe at a circus cannot be performed on the pipes at home,” he said.
