A new Sonu Sood video is going viral on the internet. He was riding a Yamaha FZ-X on mountain roads shirtless.
Bollywood actors are often seen performing crazy stunts in movies. In contrast, many things are shown in Indian movies which people don’t even pay attention to. This includes the lead actors driving bikes without helmets. While there is a warning for smoking and alcohol drinking, no such warning is shown for safe driving. Now, a new video has surfaced which shows the actor Sonu Sood driving on mountain roads. He can be seen driving a Yamaha FX-X 150cc motorcycle without a helmet. In some shots, he is not even wearing a shirt.

As you can see in the above video, Sonu Sood is riding a Yamaha FX-X 150cc bike in a hilly area. He was accompanied by several riders as they navigated through small water streams and rough roads. The popular actor also interacted with fans. While the clip shows the MTV Roadies host without a helmet, he can be seen holding a helmet during his stop. It is quite likely that he especially took off the helmet for shots used in this clip. Additionally, the popular actor decided to drive shirtless to showcase his fit body and six-pack abs.
Sonu Sood shared this video with the caption ‘FATEH’. The upcoming film is produced by the Dabanng actor himself in association with Zee Studios. Apparently, the team wrapped the shooting before taking a trip around the tough mountain terrains. It is quite ironic that Sonu Sood rode his Yamaha FX-X Street bike without a helmet because he was recently seen catching helmetless youngsters on the streets of Mumbai along with Maharashtra Additional Director General of Police (ADGP).
Safety Gear For Riding Bikes
It is to be noted that one should not compromise on safety gear even during recreational drives. While driving on normal roads without helmets is not safe, it is even more dangerous on unpredictable mountainous terrains. Hence, it is important to call out Sonu Sood’s helmet negligence. Safety is extremely important while riding bikes through tough terrains. Alongside a good-quality helmet, one should also wear gloves, a jacket, and kneepads to avoid any injuries in case of falls. Even riding in shorts (like Sonu Sood) is not recommended.

Sonu Sood is one of the most popular actors in India. He is also known for his philanthropic efforts during the COVID times. The Bollywood actor has been promoting a healthy lifestyle with his millions of fans via social media. With such a fan following, it is quite irresponsible of him to promote unsafe driving practices. On the one hand, Sonu Sood was seen offering helmets to Mumbai youngsters and now, he is himself not wearing a helmet in his Instagram video. Actors should be more careful about the things they promote consciously or subconsciously.
