Bollywood actor Abhishek Bachchan has expressed his desire to become brand ambassador for government programmes.
Abhishek was here today for the closing ceremony of the ‘Road Safety programme’ of Thane city police.
When asked whether he will become a brand ambassador for government programmes like his father megastar Amitabh Bachchan, he said, “If the government makes a request to me, then I will gladly become”.
Amitabh had accepted the proposal of Maharashtra Forest Minister Sudhir Mungantiwar to be the tiger ambassador of the state.
While addressing the gathering, the “All Is Well” star urged citizens to strictly follow traffic rules.
“Do not not copy my riding in the movie ‘Dhoom’, instead follow my role as a police officer (in the film),” he added.
“One should not drink and drive and should avoid using the cell phones while driving,” the 39-year-old actor said.
Reacting to the recent Pathankot terror attack, he said all citizens should be alert all the times.
Thane Police Commissioner Param Bir Singh, actor Satish Kaushik, actress Preeti Jhangiani and Thane Guardian Minister Eknath Shinde were present on the occasion.
