The Nagpur Police decided to create awareness in a fun and innovative way – with a meme inspired by Rohit Shetty’s Chennai Express, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Deepika Padukone.
With the coronavirus pandemic rapidly spreading over the country, authorities suggest practicing social distancing to reduce the transmission of the virus.
The Nagpur Police gave a hilarious twist to Shah Rukh’s famous dialogue – “Don’t underestimate the power of a common man.”
Sharing a picture of Shah Rukh and Deepika sitting at opposite ends of a bench, they wrote on Twitter, “Don’t underestimate the power of social distancing.”
Meanwhile, other police departments are also going the meme way to spread awareness about the coronavirus outbreak. Last month, the Delhi Police shared a meme of Daniel Radcliffe as Harry Potter in his invisibility cloak, next to the words, “You might not see us but we are watching you.”
Meanwhile, the number of coronavirus cases in India have crossed 3,577. The virus has claimed the lives of 83 people so far, while 274 have recovered fully.
Currently, India is under a three-week lock down to control the spread of the coronavirus pandemic. It is scheduled to end by April 14.
