After seeing the actor’s and his cycling friends pictures on social media without wearing any masks, netizens questioned Arya’s lack of awareness in following the rules.
The actor, who has represented India in cycle riding, went on an 80 km cycle ride on Saturday morning with his group of friends including Ghajinikanth director Santhosh P Jayakumar. Arya also posted pictures in which none of them were seen wearing masks or maintaining social distance while posing for photos. While a few of them appreciated Arya’s dedication towards fitness many questioned the actor’s lack of awareness in following social distancing norms.
“We had to take off our masks while posing for pictures and while riding the cycle as it would suffocate our lungs. We haven’t flouted the norms otherwise,” Arya told DT Next. Arya will be seen in Teddy along with his wife Sayyeshaa and also has Salpetta Parambarai that will be helmed by Pa Ranjith.
