Kolkata Police recently garnered a big round of applause from people after giving a twist to iconic Bengali song ‘Bela Bose’ to spread awareness about COVID-19. They are at it again and this time they’ve selected a track from Satyajit Ray’s iconic movie “Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne.”

“‘Goopy-Bagha’ in fight against Corona!” Kolkata Police tweeted along with the video. “Yet another musical effort by KP personnel at Rabindra Sarobar PS area to enliven another stressful day of fellow citizens with a deftly modified song from the iconic Satyajit Ray movie ‘Goopy Gyne Bagha Byne,’” they added.

Since being shared a day ago, the video has garnered over 22,000 views – and still counting. It has also gathered over 1,500 likes. People applauded the department’s efforts and their comments show how.
