Extra Actors of a Hrithik Film Mistaken As ‘Suspected Terrorists’
The Mumbai Police registered a case against two people on Wednesday, 29 May, on suspicion of being terrorists. But it turned out the two men were supporting cast members of a Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff film, who were dressed for their part for the film. The police had registered a case against them under Section 188 of Indian Penal Code (IPC) for creating panic and disrupting peace.
The two individuals identified as Balram Ginwala (23) and Arbaaz Khan (20) were dressed like bombers with bullet vests around them, reported India Today.
The police were notified about their whereabouts in Palghar, Mumbai and after an hour-long search operation, the case was registered. However after the film’s production unit produced authentic documents of the two artists, it was confirmed that they were a part of the film’s cast.
Mumbai police also felicitated Anil Mahajan, a bank watchman and ex-BSF personnnel who had alerted the police about this.
With TV9 Gujurati tweeting about this rather ironical situation, Twitter users went all out and made light of the situation.
