As the New Year approaches, Delhi Police issues a stern warning, urging citizens to refrain from emulating celebrations depicted in the movie “Animal.” The active advisory cautions against adopting the film’s style for New Year revelries, emphasizing the potential risks associated with such actions. This proactive measure aims to ensure public safety and discourage any attempts to replicate cinematic scenarios that might lead to untoward incidents during the festive transition into the new year.
Delhi Police issued Warning for New Year
The Delhi Police social media team creatively promotes New Year’s Eve safety, utilising titles like Ranbir Kapoor’s “Animal,” Vicky Kaushal’s “Sam Bahadur,” and Sidharth Malhotra’s upcoming web series “Indian Police Force.” This inventive approach actively engages citizens, employing popular Hindi film and show names to convey essential reminders on celebrating the occasion responsibly. The initiative aims to blend entertainment and awareness, ensuring a widespread and effective communication strategy for a secure and enjoyable New Year’s celebration.
The tweet read, “New Year’s Eve par ‘Mast Mein Rehne Ka’ lekin ‘Zara Hatke Zara Bachke’. Agar ‘Animal’ ban kar ‘Bawaal’ ya ‘Non Stop Dhamaal’ machaaya toh kahi aisa na ho ki 2024 ka pehla din ‘The Great Indian Family’ ke bajaaye ‘Indian Police Force’ ke saath manana pade.”

Loosely translated, it means “enjoy New Year’s Eve responsibly, or you might find yourself welcoming 2024 with the police instead of your family. Stay mindful to ensure a safe celebration.
The caption of this new year wish read “
SAM BAHADURi isi mein hai ki safety ko BHAGWAN BHAROSE mat rakho.. after all, aap bhi KISI KA BHAI, KISI KI JAAN ho! #NewYear #NewYearEve #NewYear2024.”
Earlier Delhi Police used to wish New year like this on the social media platform X. Look at this new year wish from 2018.
