Popular on social media websites like Twitter, Mobile Police time and again releases creative campaigns to promote road safety. Something of this similar sort happened recently when Mumbai Police and actress Sonam Kapoor exchanged some tweets, gaining a lot of traction in the social media.

It all started when Sonam Kapoor shared a video on Twitter showing The Zoya Factor actor Dulquer Salmaan sitting in the driver’s seat of a moving car, but his hands aren’t on the steering wheel. He’s instead seen using his mobile phone while the car seems to be moving. Kapoor can be heard calling him a ‘weirdo’ in the background.

The Mumbai Police then replied to Sonam’s video. The caption read: “We agree with you Sonam Kapoor. 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.”
Sonam, however, corrected the Mumbai Police and mentioned that the car was actually being towed by a truck. She tweeted, “We weren’t driving we were rigged on a truck.. but I’m glad you guys are concerned.. I hope and I know you show the same interest in regular folk as well! Thanks for taking care! #Reelvsreal @dulQuer.”
Sonam, later, requests her fans to not to troll the Mumbai Police.
