Wear helmet, Sachin tells woman pillion rider at T'puram
Thiruvananthapuram: Cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar had a word of advice to a woman riding pillion on a motorcycle in the capital city, asking her to wear a helmet.
In a video uploaded by the star on his Facebook page, which has gone viral, Tendulkar is seen asking the young couple to make wearing helmets a habit.
Stopping his car, Tendulkar tells the woman "wear helmet at the back also. Why should only rider be wearing a helmet? you should also be wearing helmet. You can get injured."
In a tweet, he said, "Rider or pillion, both lives matter equally. Please, please make wearing helmets a habit. Just my opinion #HelmetDaalo#RoadSafety".
Tendulkar was here on Thursday to invite Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to the inaugural ISL match between Kerala Blasters and Atletico Kolkatta at Kochi on November 17.
The sports personality was seen travelling in a car on the Pettah-Chaka road in the state capital.
