Zoya Factor is the upcoming Bollywood movie starring Dulquer Salmaan and Sonam Kapoor in the lead roles. The film is surely an interesting one at the box office as it is based on a novel. During the shoot of the film, and in a particular scene, Dulquer is seen using a cell phone while driving. The shooting video was posted on the social media and the Mumbai Police came across it and assumed that Dulquer is doing it in real.
Mumbai Police tagged the film’s heroine Sonam Kapoor and said, “Quite a ‘weirdo’ to try such stunts while driving and putting the lives of fellow drivers at risk too! We don’t quite approve of these even in ‘reel’ life. #NotDone” to which Dulquer expressed his displeasure.
Dulquer tweeted, “Would appreciate it if you had checked some facts before tweeting this. In fact @MumbaiPolice helped us with permissions and traffic management during the shoot and were present the whole time. The car was rigged to a low loader truck which was also the camera rig. I couldn’t steer or drive the car even if I wanted to. Also this particular car cannot steer itself.” and even Sonam said, “We weren’t driving we were rigged on a truck.. but I’m glad you guys are concerned.. I hope and I know you show the same interest in regular folk as well! Thanks for taking care! #Reelvsreal @dulQuer”
Later, Mumbai police realized their mistake and apologized. They then tweeted, “For us, No Mumbaikar is ‘regular’ they are all ‘special’! And we are equally concerned about them all. Glad to know your safety wasn’t ‘rigged’. @sonamakapoor”
