Dino Morea urges Aditya Thackeray to bring his open-air gym at Marine Drive promenade under CCTV surveillance after it was vandalised

It was a sense of déjà vu for Dino Morea when he found his recently-launched open-air gym at Marine Drive promenade ransacked earlier this month.

The makeshift fitness station was uprooted just a day after its inauguration following permission issues and was later installed when civic officials realised that it was Yuva Sena chief Aditya Thackeray’s pet project.

With most equipment damaged, Dino sought to attract Jr Thackeray’s attention to step up security around it through social media. On his Twitter handle, the actor has posted: “In Shock, some idiot actually cut the fitness station we put on Marine drive @AUThackeray. Sad, the public luv it &. Whatever problem you have, idiot, don’t ruin something that’s good. Stop this shit, whoever you are. We are really trying to do good for Mumbai (sic).”

To ensure that such incidents do not recur, Dino has now requested Thackeray to help install CCTV cameras around the fitness station to keep an eye on mischief mongers. “Someone actually used a hacksaw to cut one of the steel bars. How ridiculous can people get? I wish there were some kind of street security cameras to catch the vandals. Nevertheless, I hope citizens voluntarily start taking care of the city and stop people from creating nuisance,” the actor told hitlist.
