Exclusive: Akshay Kumar works for Mumbai Traffic Police in social message video film shot on Sealink today

It would be funny if it was not so ironic. Akshay Kumar was shooting a social message for the Traffic Control Branch of the Mumbai Police on the Bandra-Worli Sealink this afternoon. And the Bollywood superstar got trolled by angry motorists who though he was shooting a film and causing traffic jams.

From afar, it does look like Akshay is shooting the climax of his cop universe March 2020 release Sooryavanshi for filmmaker Rohit Shetty. But far from that, the actor turned out in crisp khaki to play the Traffic cop for the Mumbai Police. For which motorists impatiently took to social media to condemn the traffic jams on the Sealink.

You remember last year, too, Akshay had done three video ad campaigns for the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (India) in which he plays a delightfully comic Traffic constable and his message is “Yeh Road Kisike Baap Ka Nahi He!” to errant and arrogant motorists? The videos were hugely popular and got the ministry’s aggressive message across very effectively.

It is a continuation of that Road Safety Awareness Campaign that got Akshay to don the khaki and step onto the Sealink to monitor Mumbai’s traffic for another video ad film. Akshay was both funny and sarcastic in the earlier campaign as he encouraged motorists to follow traffic rules. Let’s see what he does this time. The Sooryavanshi shoot, meanwhile, is over. Akshay plays the Anti-Terrorist Squad chief Veer Sooryavanshi in it. Not a Traffic Police officer.
