Earlier, the Nagpur Police shared a screengrab of a scene from the film Chennai Express to encourage social distancing on social media in one such post that was widely shared online. Modifying the caption instead of the original dialogue from the film that says, “don't underestimate the power of a common man", police wrote social distancing on the picture where actor Shahrukh Khan and Deepika Padukone can be seen sitting 2 metres apart on the bench. Twitter users found the post “funny” and lauded the Nagpur Police for the apt example from the stills of a Bollywood flick.
