Mumbai: Actor Rajpal Yadav took to Twitter Thursday to post a note to all selfie lovers. In the letter, he requests people to be cautious and responsible while clicking selfies as "'Your Self' is more important than Your 'Selfie'".
Yadav took to Twitter to express his thoughts through an open letter.
He tweeted: "And caption is just open letter to all selfie lovers read it guys..!! (sic)."
"Don't we all love taking selfies of ourselves at home, at college, at public spaces, at outing points? We don't miss a spot - we click selfies by the edge of seashores and on mountain cliffs. Who cares if the very next second a massive sea wave sweeps us away to death or we make the hugest fall of our life into death. Selfie is the most important thing to us.
Self-love is the most common idea of love and each one of us should love yourself. But, not at the cost of losing our very life.
Selfies are meant to freeze a moment in your life with you in it so you can go back to that time and cherish it. But, a little irresponsibility while taking a selfie can freeze that moment and make it your last one alive."

Describing his role as a 'selfie don' in Shaadi Teri Bajayenge Hum Band, the actor said: "I will be playing the role of one of those people who are obsessed with taking selfies. While I enact someone who is crazy about taking selfies, I feel it is my duty as a responsible adult to let all my viewers know that keep up your love for self but, not at the expense of your own life.
"Go to cliff points, go to beaches and valleys but be safe while you're capturing the special moments of life".
"We have heard several stories in the news about people losing lives while taking selfies. News always brings to us stories about people carelessly taking selfies that ultimately cost them their lives.
Watch out for yourselves while you take memorable selfies."
