They say ‘Not all superheroes wear capes’, and we, netizens keep getting perfect examples of this time and again. In Mumbai, the real heroes come out amidst heavy Mumbai rains and offer help to those who get stranded.
These real heroes prove that humanity is still alive. These stories reinstill our hearts with hopes and make one believe in generosity and kindness. Recently, our Bollywood director Imtiaz Ali shared one such story on his social media.
It was just another night when Imtiaz Ali had chosen to walk amidst Mumbai rains. He wasn’t looking for any conveyance to go back but there was this one kind auto-driver who came to his rescue. Imtiaz Ali took to his facebook and shared the details of how that auto-driver helped him. He wrote:
“Night walk in the rain! the auto-rickshaw came along and asked if I wanted a ride. I refused, he asked again – it was raining and I was without cover. I had checked my wallet, I smiled at him and said I had no money. He looked at me and asked me to sit in, he would drop me without money. I asked him to carry on and get some other client and do his job. He said it was raining and I would get wet. He asked me to sit in, he would drop me. I sat and he drove.”
However, the auto driver wasn’t aware of the fact that Imtiaz Ali was a director. He got to know that only after a few fans got down off a car and asked him for selfies. He wrote:
“Soon a car stopped the rickshaw – it was a couple who wanted a selfie with me. The autorickshaw guy looked at me. He asked me if I was Imtiaz Ali. He said he would want a selfie with me. I told him I would want a selfie with him as well.”
Imtiaz Ali even shared a selfie he clicked with the auto-driver with this post. Have a look:
On the work front, Imtiaz Ali is busy in directing his next with Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aryan in the lead roles.
