Masks are mandatory in India

Masks are mandatory in public places across India. There are separate rules for people driving alone in the car in different states but in most cases, the mask is mandatory even if the person is travelling alone in the vehicle. Masks are also mandatory for the people who are on two-wheelers. The government keeps on changing the rules as per the requirement and spreading the COVID-19 across India. While the authorities are trying their best to ensure that everyone follows the rules and brings down the number of COVID-19 cases even further, there are still many who break the rules.

The government is also closely monitoring new COVID-19 outbreaks in at least six states in India. It also includes Maharashtra. As the number of COVID-19 cases is going up, the authorities are taking strict actions against the people who are not following the rules. Post the video, Mumbai Police handle on social media did write a few banter for Vivek Oberoi and maybe that is why Vivek decided to reply to them using the new meme. Nonetheless, Vivek Oberoi is a biker by heart and he loves to go around the town riding on his expensive machines. In his younger days, he used to be spotted on motorcycles most of the times and even used to reach important events on motorcycles.
