The Thugs of Hindostan trailer has garnered a lot of praises and become a source of memes flooding the social media. Along with netizens, Mumbai Police, who have probably mastered the art of creating hilarious yet meaningful memes, also gave their own twist to a scene from the trailer.
Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, the stars of the film, have praised the Mumbai Police’s new campaign #Nocityforthugs that they began with a tweet.
On September 29, Mumbai Police tweeted a poster where a still from the actors’ upcoming film Thugs of Hindostan was put on one side and the Mumbai Police team’s image was put on the other.
The caption on the film’s still read, “Dhokha swabhav hai humara (treachery is our nature).”
The caption on Mumbai Police’s photograph read, “Aur bharosa humara (And trust is ours).”
