No actor probably had the same name for the characters as much as Amitabh Bachchan has been synonymous with Vijay. Out of over 20 films where the superstar’s character was named Vijay, numerous of them featured him in the role of a police inspector. The ‘Sholay’ star turned Vijay once again, this time for a noble initiative of the Mumbai Police to ‘be alert, be responsible, be safe’ against terrorism and other criminal activities.
In a video, Big B is at his quirky best as he alerts a passenger in the BEST bus how he was not just a police inspector Vijay on the big screen, but even outside it with the help of his ears, eyes and the mind.
He says, “Mumbai will only be safe if each and every Mumbaikar stays alert” as he teases the passenger over using his phone excessively while asking him to call 100 and inform about the suspicious bag.
Bachchan says in the video, “Become the eyes and ears of Mumbai Police. Become a cop. And help us in keeping this beautiful city safe.”

Last month, Big B had also shot a video for Mumbai Police’s Quick Response Team.
From urging citizens to not cross the railways tracks to lending his backing to special initiatives for CISF and CRPF jawans in recent times, the actor is known to lend his support to various issues of city and national interests.

Recently, even Akshay Kumar had shot for a special video as traffic police officer.
