The trailer of the film Shakuntala Devi has been creating loops on social media after its release on Wednesday. The trailer of the biopic, based on a mathematician’s life, also worked as a motivation for Mumbai and Nagpur police to build public awareness posts on cybersafety.
The police departments shared the posts on their respective Twitter handles to guide residents on having powerful passwords. They have shared a still from the film where Vidya Balan, who plays the mathematician, says, “Jab amazing ho sakti hu, toh normal kyu banu (Why should I be normal, when I can be amazing).” While Mumbai Police used a translated version of the dialogue, the Nagpur Police used it as it is.
Moreover, the police departments have also shared a similar message on cybersecurity that advises people to keep strong passwords.
Take a look at both posts:

Shared on Thursday, the posts saw many netizens praising the police departments for their creativity.
Here’s How The Twitterati Reacted On The Posts:
I have been using @googlechrome‘s password feature which:
1. Generates unique & difficult passwords for each account that I am creating
2. Encrypts & saves these passwords to my Google account
4. Automatically logins using them on sites & apps
I think everyone should use it.
