The commissioner had recently shared a post making a hilarious reference to 1990’s Bollywood comedy caper Andaz Apna Apna. The police department had played around with one of the popular dialogues of the film to urge their followers to wear masks in public. They shared a still from the film featuring actor Paresh Rawal in his double-role characters and one of them wearing a mask.
The text on the image reads, “Teja main hu, mask idhar hai’ (I am Teja, here’s the mask). Another popular dialogue of the film was used as the caption of the post, “Smart Boy!’, used with the witty hashtag “#MaskApnaApna”.
