He commented on the Mumbai Police post by writing, “Sheher ke saare ‘Vicky Donor’. Please Mumbai Police ki Dhyan Se Suno, Aur Bahar Jaane ki ‘Bewakoofiyan’ na karo you will find enough time to meet your ‘Pyari Bindu’. Abhi time nahin hai ki hum ‘Nautanki Saala’ bane aur risk le. Filhaal Shubh Mangal Aur Zyada Saavdhan Raho! Apki Samajhdaari aapko Covid jaisi buri ‘Bala’ se bachaayegi. Jai Hind ”
