Actor Jackie Shroff’s recent Twitter post, ‘Lucknow’s Traffic Control’, created quite a buzz. The 10-second video, posted on his social media handle @bindasbhidu on Monday morning, shows him managing the state capital’s traffic!

The actor was in Lucknow on Sunday and in the evening, he travelled to Old city, opposite the Clock Tower, for shooting for Sanjay Dutt-starrer ‘Prasthaanam’.

At one point, his car got stuck in a traffic jam. The actor quietly stepped out and helped clear the jam in a polite manner, sporting a smile. Someone inside his car shot the video.

Later, speaking to Hindustan Times, Jackie said, “More than myself, now I am (actor) Tiger Shroff’s father, so his and my fans do get excited (on seeing me). When you tell people to clear the way, they do it easily…bidu!”

Till Monday evening, the video had received over 32,000 views, 261 retweets, 1,700 likes and 95 comments.

In several comments, people also took potshots at Lucknow Police’s traffic management, saying that it went for a toss in busy localities during rush hour.
