Now, Dhawan has reacted to the video going viral after Pant's accident.
"First of all, I am happy that Rishabh survived the accident and is recovering well. I keep talking to him. I had seen him drive once and I told him to drive carefully when he interviewed me. I didn't even remember that, but somehow that went viral on social media. I had given him genuine advice, from the heart, asking him to drive carefully," Dhawan said on Aaj Tak.
"When you are 20-21, everyone has that enthusiasm. Rishabh Pant is not the only one who has driven rashly. I also did it when I was of that age. Many other youngsters would have done the same. It's important to rein in that adrenaline. I gave him advice a bit late, but yes I did give it to him."
