Mumbai: Bollywood and its relationship with hit-and-run seems to be going pretty strong, unfortunately. This time actor Dalip Tahil was arrested by the Khar police for allegedly drunk driving after he rammed his car into an autorickshaw and injuring its passengers.
The incident took place near China Garden restaurant on CD Road in Khar. The police also said that after the incident Tahil tried to flee the scene with the victims reporting seeing the car trying to flee towards Santacruz.
