The Mumbai Police, famous for its amusing tweets, has utilised the well-known song from the newly-released movie Qala to convey a message regarding the importance of consent. The police have asked the public to educate themselves on the significance of understanding consent.
In an Instagram post shared a few hours ago, the Mumbai Police shared a small clip from the song “Ghodey Pe Sawar” of the movie “Qala” with a caption in Marathi that, when translated to English, reads as “You don’t need “art” to understand the “no” of the person in front of you!” One hashtag, #ConsentMatters, was also shared in the post.
In the video clip, the actress Triptii Dimri is seen singing the lyrics of the song, which are “Koi kaisey unhey yeh samjhaaye Sajaniya ke mann mein abhi inkaar hai.”
When the line is complete, the Mumbai police play a message that reads, “It doesn’t take ‘Qala’ to understand consent.”
