Mumbai Police tries to teach Sonam, Dulquer Salmaan, albeit wrongly
Mumbai Police have often been lauded for their quick-witted tweets giving out civic lessons with references to whatever is trending. But, today they were in a pickle. They posted a video of actors Sonam Kapoor and Dulquer Salmaan and slammed them for absent-mindedly driving a car. However, both Sonam and Dulquer explained that they were actually "rigged on a truck." Oops!
Sonam calls Dulquer 'weirdo', Mumbai Police agrees
The video shared by the Mumbai Police showed Dulquer on the driver's seat of a moving car, but his hands weren't on the steering wheel. Instead, he's seen using his mobile phone and in the background, Sonam calls him 'weirdo' jokingly. Mumbai Police then called out to the duo saying Dulquer is indeed a 'weirdo' for trying out such stunts.
'We don't quite approve of these even in 'reel' life'
Sonam clarifies, Dulquer lashes out saying 'should have checked facts'
Soon, after the news reached Sonam, she decided to clear the air. She responded to Mumbai Police's tweet saying they weren't driving but were being rigged by a truck, but she was "glad" they were "concerned." Dulquer, however, responded a little angrily, saying Mumbai Police should have "checked some facts before tweeting this." The clip was from their upcoming film The Zoya Factor.
Thanks for taking care: Sonam to Mumbai Police
Dulquer posts video of shoot with the hashtag #notawierdo
And, Mumbai Police comes with a final cheeky reply
Netizens join the farce, troll both Mumbai Police and Sonam
