As Bollywood shoots in Mumbai come to a stop, Vanity vans from the sets of Ranveer Singh’s ‘Cirkus’ and Alia Bhatt’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’ are being diverted to the Mumbai police!
As the second wave of COVID-19 has spread like wildfire, resulting in the halting of Bollywood shoots in Mumbai, about a half-dozen vanity is now in service of the cops on the job. Ketan Rawal, the owner of Vanity Van, has fulfilled his role as a good citizen by lending a helping hand to the Mumbai cops on COVID duty. Rawal said, “I have diverted vans from Rohit Shetty’s ‘Cirkus’, Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Gangubai Kathiawadi’, and Anand L Rai’s ‘Raksha Bandhan’ in service of the Mumbai police.”
Thane Police Commissioner recently contacted Rawal who informed him that he would be supplying them with another ten vanity vans for their officers and constables, the same way he offered the vanity vans to women officials last year, who was on field duty and needed to rest, access the washrooms and switch between duty hours.
Since last year, Rawal has also been providing aid to Gujarati theatre artists by providing ration and the like to them, since their plays are not being staged. Once the condition becomes better for shooting, the vanity vans will be sanitized and returned.
