The clip with the dialogue can be seen in the movie’s trailer which was unveiled on September 9.
Quick to catch on this, the Maharashtra Police tweeted: “Seven years imprisonment with fine under IPC Section 393 #ColoursOfLaw #TheSkyIsPink @priyankachopra @FarOutAkhtar.”
Priyanka retorted with a tweet that read: “Oops caught red-handed time to activate Plan B @FarOutAkhtar! #TheSkyIsPink.”
To which Farhan wrote: “Hahaha never planning heists on camera again @priyankachopra #TheSkyIsPinkTrailer.”
The series of playful mock threat tweets didn’t end here. The cops replied to Farhan’s tweet post and wrote: “A heist planned anywhere shall be punished with rigorous imprisonment for a term which may extend to 10 years and shall also be liable to fine, under Section 399. The best plan is always not to have such plans in ‘real’ life. #ReelvsReal.”
