Bollywood actor Ayushmann Khurrana has replied to the COVID-19 meme inspired by his upcoming film, "Gulabo Sitabo", which has been shared by Mumbai Police. Mumbai Police on their official account tweeted a still from the film, featuring Ayushamann with his co-star Amitabh Bachchan. The caption, in Marathi, read: "Home is yours, land is yours, choice is yours, but for going out, permission is ours, for your safety. The safest place to stay away from Coronavirus is your haveli. Do not go out without any reason. Stay safe"
Ayushmann replied to the tweet: "Agdi barobar @DGPMaharashtra Police Gharat Surakshik, baher sadhya nahi (absolutely true Maharashtra Police, home/staying indoors is safe, outside isn't)."
This is not the first time Mumbai Police has used a reference from a Bollywood film to create awareness.
Previously they have tweeted with stills and dialogues from films like "Main Hoon Na" and "Stree" among many others
Gulabo Sitabo will stream online on Amazon Prime Video on June 12. Talking about the decision to release the film digitally, filmmaker Shoojit Sircar, in an earlier interview said, "We had made the film and it was supposed to release in April. Normally when my film is ready, I have a very bad habit -- I have to serve it to the audience right then. So that was there and then this crisis (COVID-19 pandemic) came upon us".
