Amid a row of those memes comes the smart and creative one from Mumbai Police which has left netizens in splits.
Mumbai Police, well known for their witty tweets, shared a meme this morning which uses a dialogue from the Gully Boy trailer that was released yesterday. As with all their tweets, this one too contains an important message presented in a hilarious way.
Cops used Alia Bhatt’s dialogue “Mar jayega tu (You will die)” to make an important point about road safety. “When he argues to ride a motorcycle without wearing helmet,” they tweeted. But instead of the viral hashtag of #GullyBoy they altered it to #SillyBoy.
