Recently, 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.”
