Warning bikers against performing stunts on the city roads, the Mumbai Police have tweeted a clip from Hollywood star Tom Cruise's just-released movie 'Mission Impossible- Fallout". The 12-second clip shows Cruise riding a bike in style without wearing a helmet and colliding with a car while looking back. "Not an impossible mission for us to penalise you if you are spotted trying these stunts on the road of Mumbai! That's the job. No hard feelings," the tweet said while warning the stunt bikers who might feel tempted to replicate Cruise's reel swag on the streets.

Spots like Marine Drive, Bandra Reclamation stretch that starts after the sealink towards the Western Express Highway, Bandra, Govandi are favourites of stunt-bikers who drive recklessly, sometimes during night traffic. Stunt biking generally takes a break during monsoon. Mumbai Police have also urged bikers to wear helmets and avoid rash driving with the hash tags "safety is possible" and "Say no to rash driving."

"Lol @MumbaiPolice Tom cruise still survives that, because there are no manholes, unlike India, because the government doesn't take the initiative to fix them. That's why people don't pay tax," writes @TanishqDesai777.
