Love her or hate her but you just cannot ignore Dhinchak Pooja.
She's given us Indians an introduction to the genre of cringe-pop with songs like Selfie Maine Le Li Aaj, Swag Wali Topi and Daaru. And if you've been following her career, you probably already know about her new song Dilon Ka Shooter.
The video shows her driving across the streets of Delhi on her scooter, which she claims shoots hearts with its aesthetic. While that might be debatable, what she actually got into soup for was not wearing a helmet while driving her scooty in the video.
A concerned citizen complained to the Delhi Traffic Police about a woman driving through the area of Surajmal Vihar singing loud songs:
Delhi Traffic Police gave a reply to Mohit Singh asking for further details:
Thanks,kindly tweet with date,time and exact place so that necessary action can be taken.— Delhi Traffic Police (@dtptraffic) 27 June 2017
After learning of all the details, Delhi Traffic Police assured Mohit of a strict action:
Thanks,action will be taken.— Delhi Traffic Police (@dtptraffic) 27 June 2017
This is certainly a funny fiasco, however, it cannot be ignored that Dhinchak Pooja should have definitely taken more care.
With her rising fame, she needs to make sure to not promote unsafe behaviour.
At the same time, Dilon Ka Shooter has already gotten quite a few reviews on Twitter:
Be careful of all that life changing advice you casually throw around:
Someone's "Don't worry about the society, be yourself" is the reason why we have people like Dhinchak Pooja today.— Rishabh Bhandari (@jokebazz) 25 June 2017
Yes, that is exactly the purpose of cring-pop:

You don't have an option when your hearing abilities are at risk, do you?

Nonetheless, we're proud of Delhi Traffic Police for taking note of the complaint and hopefully, Dhinchak Pooja will be more careful next time!
