While the existence of a police band in any force is not unusual, mostly offering patriotic songs — the cops from Mumbai had quite an interesting choice. Moving beyond Indian song, the force was seen performing iconic Hollywood music from James Bond films.

Sharing their tribute to Monty Norman’s ‘James Bond Theme’, the law enforcement agency shared a stunning performance by their Police Band Khakhi Studio. From Clarinet to Saxophone, the over 30 members from the force amazed all with their stunning performance.
