The popularity and fan base of Megastar Rajinikanth is unmatched, be it in India or abroad. And an example of the same was recently seen when the Derby Town police in Australia used a Rajinikanth meme for their drunk driving campaign. The Derby Police officials tweeted a post on February 10, 2019 where they talked about a drunk driving case. Their campaign featured none other than megastar Rajinikanth. The breath analyser results of a particular drunk man driving a car were being used by the officials in the tweet.
Sharing a picture of a scene from the actor’s last film ‘2.0’ where Rajinikanth can be seen sitting along with his co-star Amy Jackson, the officials captioned the post as, ‘A male subject to a breath test by Derby Police this morning provided a reading that biologically shouldn’t even be possible. The male had a BAC of 0.341% which is like driving whilst under a surgical anaesthetic or being in a coma. Oh, and he has 2 prior life disqual’s 😉’
Needless to say, it was indeed a treat for the Rajinikanth fans.
Rajinikanth’s film ‘2.0’ was released on November 29, 2018. It also starred Akshay Kumar, Amy Jackson and Sudhanshu Pandey in the lead roles. https://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/entertainment/hindi/bollywood/news/derby-town-police-uses-rajinikanths-meme-in-australia-for-drunk-driving-campaign/articleshow/68018602.cms
