It wouldn’t have been a surprise if all the four placards had Kabir Singh dialogues on them. https://t.co/ezDAfjRl0z

Amid several appreciative comments, one user highlighted the problem of ‘potholes & traffic’ and asked the Mumbai Police to focus on it. “With due respect to the need of addressing the other concerns you mentioned, misogyny seems to be a lesser problem in the nature of comparison you have drawn. Exactly the reason why #LetsNotNormaliseMisogyny needs to be reiterated as many times and in as many ways,” Mumbai Police replied.
