Telugu films are inspired by cops and their antics. Flying kicks, flying jeeps and airborne motorcycles all around.
This viral video on social media is other way round. Two real cops – Sub Inspector K Bhavana and her husband Ravuri Kishore – went for their pre wedding shoot completely inspired by Telegu films.
Bhavana is currently attached to the Panjagutta police station while Kishore is with the city Armed Reserve. The couple got married in August and their pre wedding shoot is getting viral a month after.
The viral video, which shows the two officers meeting at the police station while on duty and then moving into a dance sequence. They tap their feet, move their body and try every dance step like any leading cast of movies. And the real cops look reel hero-heroine.
People on social media has mixed reactions. While many appreciated the enthusiasm and excitement of ‘would be couple', few objected to their ‘misusing' police properties – uniform, vehicle and police station for film like shooting without seeking proper permission.
The video also drew the attention of Hyderabad Police Commissioner CV Anand, who felt nothing wrong with two police officers using the department's property but advised other officers not to repeat this again without permission.
“I have seen mixed reactions to this. Honestly, they seem to be a little overexcited about their marriage and that's great news, though a little embarrassing,” Anand said in his post on X.
“Policing is a very very tough job, especially for ladies. And she finding a spouse in the department is an occasion for all of us to celebrate. The fact that it's two police officers, I find nothing wrong in them using the police department property and symbols. If they had informed us earlier, we would have definitely given consent for the shoot,” he added.
He further tweeted, “Some of us may feel outraged, but I feel like meeting them and blessing them, though they didn't invite me for their wedding.”
