Tendulkar asks woman pillion rider to wear helmet

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 yesterday to invite Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan to the inaugural ISL match between Kerala Blasters and Atletico Kolkatta at Kochi on November 17.
