Maharashtra Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray recently took the decision to reopen Cinema halls from October 22. With that, Rohit Shetty and Akshay took no time to announce the release of their long-delayed film Sooryavanshi. The actor took to Twitter and shared the good news along with a BTS picture featuring Ranveer Singh and Ajay Devgn. However, IPS officer RK Vij made a comment in a photo that grabbed Khiladi Kumar’s attention.
The much-awaited cop drama will be the first Bollywood film to get released in Maharashtra’s cinema, 18 months after the theatres were shut in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic
Thanking Maharashtra CM, Akshay Kumar shared a behind the scene photo from the sets of Sooryavanshi, along with Ajay Devgn, Rohit Shetty and Ranveer Singh having a conversation in police uniforms. IPS officer RK Vij commented on the photo, pointing out a mistake and wrote, “इंस्पेक्टर साहेब बैठे हैं (तन कर) और एस पी साहब खड़े, ऐसे नही होता है जनाब (The Inspector is sitting while the SP is standing, this does not happen).”
इंस्पेक्टर साहेब बैठे हैं (तन कर) और एस पी साहब खड़े, ऐसे नही होता है जनाब 😊 https://t.co/iIvElW9pxC

(Sir, this is a Behind-the-scenes photo. For us artists, as soon as the camera is turned on, protocol returns.) Regards forever to our great police forces. Hope you like the film when you watch it.”
जनाब ये तो Behind the Scenes फ़ोटो है। हम कलाकार लोगों के लिए जैसे ही कैमरा ऑन हुआ, एकदम protocol वापस 😊
