Mumbai Police Briefs Sonam Kapoor And Dulquer Salmaan Over Road-Safety But Things Mess Up
We are all aware of the badass nature of the Mumbai Police and their bang-on twitter game. It seems this time they might have got it a tab-bit wrong. Thinking what went wrong this time?
Please allow us to answer that- Mumbai Police called out to Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan on their twitter handle after a scene from an upcoming film which features the two actors caught their attention. But, it soon turned out that the Mumbai Police had got too much swayed away by their online reputation that they forgot to cross-check things this time.
The clip that caught Mumbai Police’s attention showed Salmaan in the driver’s seat of a moving car, but apparently, his hands were off the steering wheel. What he is seen instead of doing is, using his mobile phone while the car is still moving. This is a clip from their forthcoming, ‘The Zoya Factor’ shows Salmaan playing with his phone while Kapoor calls him a ‘weirdo’ in the background.
Mumbai Police’s official twitter handle read, “We agree with you @sonamkapoor! Quite a ‘weirdo’ to try such stunts while driving and putting the lives of fellow drivers at risk too! We don’t quite approve of these even in ‘reel’ life. #NotDone”
It’s the Mumbai Police’s official tweet so you know it will spread pretty and soon a lot of people were talking about it. So, Sonam Kapoor had to step in to clear the air- “We weren’t driving we were rigged on a truck… but I’m glad you guys are concerned…” she wrote in her explanation. “I hope and I know you show the same interest in regular folk as well! Thanks for taking care! #Reelvsreal,” and she tagged her co-star from the film.
Dulquer Salmaan also responded to the tweet, “Would appreciate it if you had checked some facts before tweeting this. In fact, @MumbaiPolice helped us with permissions and traffic management during the shoot and were present the whole time. In my next tweet attaching the video I was shooting.” He later posted a video of how the steering wheel keeps moving on its own.
As a reply, Mumbai Police posted two tweets to both Salmaan and Sonam, saying that they were glad the safety wasn’t rigged. The tweet also said how every Mumbaikar is special for them and Mumbai Police is equally concerned for everyone.
