‘Weirdo’ Video: Mumbai Police faces criticism for wrongly shaming Sonam Kapoor, Dulquer Salman in public


The Mumbai Police is known for not sparing even celebrities on Twitter when it comes to rule violations. However, its decision to use social media to pull up actors Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salman has backfired. This was after Mumbai Police slammed Sonam by posting a video of Dulquer seemingly using his mobile phone while sitting behind the steering wheel when the car appeared to be in motion. Dulquer appeared to drive the car without holding the steering wheel while using the mobile phone. Sonam was heard saying in the video, “Weirdo.”

The tweet by Mumbai Police read, “We agree with you @sonamakapoor ! 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 sought to remind the Mumbai Police that the car wasn’t moving and, instead, they were simply r’rigged’ on a truck. She wrote, “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!”

This did not convince the cops as they replied, “For us, No Mumbaikar is ‘regular’ they are all ‘special’! And we are equally concerned about them all. Glad to know your safety wasn’t ‘rigged’.”

Dulquer Salaman then attached a longer version of the video that showed their car being rigged. He also wrote, “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. #notawierdo”

This prompted their fans to troll Mumbai Police. But Sonam urged her fans to spare the cops they were simply doing their job.
