Pratik Gandhi says 'police caught me by shoulder, almost pushed me in some random marble warehouse' during 'VIP movement' in Mumbai


Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, was in Mumbai on Sunday to receive the first Lata Deenanath Mangeshkar award. Due to his visit, the Mumbai Police upped the security. They even requested citizens to avoid taking the Mumbai Western Express Highway from Santacruz to Sion. However, Pratik Gandhi, who headed out to work on Sunday, faced inconvenience due to the 'VIP movement'.

The actor expressed his concern on Twitter and accused the police of manhandling him. Sharing his experience, Pratik tweeted, "Mumbai WEH is jammed coz of “VIP” movement, I started walking on the roads to reach the shoot location and Police caught me by shoulder and almost pushed me in some random marble warehouse to wait till without any discussion."
