Bollywood actors Disha Patani and Tiger Shroff were booked by Mumbai Police for not following Covid-19 norms. They were reportedly found roaming "without a valid reason" in Bandra area of the Indian city of Mumbai.

The rumored couple were reportedly found roaming at Mumbai's Bandstand Promenada after 2 p.m, reported Times Now News. Due to the lockdown in Maharashtra that has been extended till June 15, there are restrictions on movement after 2pm, except for essential services. Patani and Shroff were reportedly in their car, driving around their neighborhood when police officials stopped them for checking.

Shroff was sitting at the back of the car, and Disha was placed in the passenger seat. The police reportedly checked their Aadhar card. After completing other formalities, the two left. A source said that the two were driving in their car after a gym session.

"A police team spotted Shroff roaming in the Bandstand area in the evening. When questioned, he couldn't give a satisfactory reply to why he was roaming outside. Police took down his details and registered a case under section 188 (Disobeying the order of public servant) of the IPC," an official said.

The official added that it was a bailable offence and no arrest was made, reported Mid-Day. The Mumbai Police confirmed this development on Twitter. But they didn't mention their names. Instead, they listed Shroff and Patani's films to create awareness among public.

On Thursday, Mumbai Police tweeted, "In the ongoing ‘War’ against the virus, going ‘Malang’ on the streets of Bandra cost dearly to two actors who have been booked under sections 188, 34 IPC by Bandra PStn."

"We request all Mumbaikars to avoid unnecessary ‘Heropanti’ which can compromise on safety against #COVID19."

Meanwhile, Shroff's mother, Ayesha Shroff, reacted strongly, reported The Times of India. "They were heading home and cops were checking Aadhaar cards on the way. No one is interested in 'roaming' at a time like this,” she said.

Ayesha said, “For your information, it is permitted to go out for essentials." She also asked people to focus on the positive initiatives supported by Shroff. "Instead of bringing people down how come no one writes about the free meals he’s providing to front line workers!! That’s coz he himself doesn’t talk about it! So don’t judge till you know. Thank you," the actor's mom added.
