Mumbai Police shortlists Bachchan’s Agneepath scene to share COVID-19 precaution message
Maharashtra Government has been reprimanding the people for getting callous about COVID-19 even when the cases have dwindled. But not many are adhering to the norms and they are coming with ways to preach the same.
Mumbai Police has once again found an interesting way to share an important message. The social media pages of the police department are known and praised for their posts that impart pertinent safety guidelines whether it’s about cybersecurity, road safety or Covid-19 related guidelines. Their recent share is no different.
In a post shared yesterday, Mumbai Police picked a scene from the 1990 film Agneepath, featuring actors Amitabh Bachchan, Rohini Hattangadi and Neelam Kothari, to share a message about washing one’s hands. The Mumbai Police have taken a scene from Agneepath which has Rohini Hattangadi who played Amitabh Bachchan’s mother, berates him for washing hands. It obviously is a hint from his mother about the sins he committed which can never be washed away with soap. But Mumbai Police uses it to say ‘Kabhi Maa se pucha hai woh kya chahti hai.‘
