After a video of a boy getting upset during a haircut was widely shared on social media, the Mumbai Police used the video to spread a social message.
The social media post warning people to wear masks features the line by the boy: “Arey yaar zyada kyun kar rahe ho, matt karoo (why are you doing so much, don’t do it)”
The Mumbai Police tagged the boy’s father, who had originally shared the clip, in their tweet.
Responsible Mumbaikars to people going out without wearing masks:

The video of the angry boy has been widely shared and inspired multiple memes since it was first shared.
Recently, modified videos of the boy that make it seem like he’s lip-syncing to Bollywood songs were also widely shared.
