Call it an occupational hazard. After donning the khakhi uniform in 11 films, looks like Prithviraj is in cop mode in real-life too

Prithvi also essays a policeman in Aditya Chopra’s Aurangzeb. The actor recently committed quite a gaffe when he screamed at a cop in Chennai.


A source says, “Prithviraj often jokes that he has a cop’s DNA in his system. While shooting for his film, Prithvi walked up to a man who he thought was also playing a cop in the film. He asked him to pull his act together.”

As luck would have it, the man turned out to be the Chennai Traffic Commissioner of Police. Prithvi says, “I thought he wasn’t looking like a cop. Later I learnt his real identity and that he was on a lunch break from his rounds when I spotted him.”
