Actor Vivek Anand Oberoi has urged everyone to not do the ‘Kiki challenge‘ as it can claim innocent lives.
The ‘Kiki challenge’ shows a video of people inspired by rapper Drake’s number In my feelings, stepping out of moving cars and dancing.
“The video I had shared earlier turned out to be fake, but what was shown in it is what everyone doing the ‘Kiki Challenge’ is prone to. Please refrain from doing this horrible challenge that can take innocent lives, think about the ones who love you, your life is precious! Say no to Kiki,” Vivek tweeted.

The Delhi Police resorted to putting up the animation of a man dancing on the road, presumably to the Kiki challenge, near an ambulance with its doors open. The Delhi Police also tweeted “Dancing on the roads can open new doors for you.”
Dance on the floors, not on the roads!

The Uttar Pradesh police sent out a warning saying “Dear Parents, whether Kiki loves your child or not, we are sure you do! So please stand by your kids in all the challenges in life except Kiki challenge.”
Police forces in Chandigarh, Bengaluru, Mumbai and Jaipur have also issued advisories against taking up the Kiki challenge.
