It is well known that traffic situation in Mumbai is bad and people often get stuck in heavy jams in the city, especially while commuting to and from work. Traffic congestion in the city affects all, be it a commoner or a movie star and recently Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan got stuck in traffic while he was on his way to his shoot location.

What Bachchan did next is interesting; he hitched a bike ride from a stranger to navigate the traffic faster. Apparently, the Bollywood actor was travelling in his car which got stuck in “unsolvable traffic jams" of the city. He then took a lift from the owner of a Royal Enfield Himalayan who helped him get through the traffic faster and reach his work location on time.
