Guneet Monga’s “Period. End of Sentence” is being celebrated across the country for winning the Oscar in the Best Documentary Short Subject category.
Taking the celebrations a notch ahead, Mumbai Police, in their own familiar style, have used the Oscar winner to create awareness about citizen safety across the city.
The city police has always adopted innovative and appealing methods and taken an extra step to convey the message effectively to ensure the safety of its citizens through various awareness campaigns, both offline and online.
In their latest tweet, using the film’s poster, they share their love for the city.
“If cities were given an Oscar, Mumbai would have bagged some of the trophies definitely! #LoveTheCityWeServe #IfCitiesWonOscars.”
