Recently, the trend of people dancing inside metro trains, railway platforms and other public places has seen a sharp rise. Despite facing flat online and repeated reminders from the authorities, the content creators don’t seem to be stopping any time soon. Recently, a social media influencer landed in trouble after the police took action on her viral video where she was seen dancing inside the Mumbai Railway Station.
The influencer named Seema Kanojiya was forced to issue a public apology by the police after her video violated railway norms. Ms Kanojiya took to her Instagram handle and shared the video of her apology, which shows her standing in the middle between two police officers. In the clip, you can see her accepting that it was wrong and illegal to dance on a railway platform. She also urged other Youtubers and creators to avoid making such videos in public places and further apologized to the viewers.
”Do not make video or reels at railway platforms and inside trains. Passengers are facing problems and it is offensive. I am sorry for making rolls at the railway platform at Andheri and CSMT,” she wrote. Ms Kanojia also enclosed a written apology which she submitted to the police.
Here is the video:
”The video that I had made at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (CST) went viral and got 70-80 million views. It was unethical and an insult as I should not make such videos on public platforms. All Youtubers and Instagram influencers should avoid making such videos and I apologize for causing inconvenience to passengers,” she said.
The video in question, which was shared on December 4, showed her jumping off a train and dancing to a Bollywood song on the crowded railway platform. She even bumped into two passengers on the platform and disturbed others. Earlier, Central Railway had reacted to the video saying that an investigation is underway and asked people to refrain from doing the same.
