Actor-director Sudeep, who has played a cop in many of his films, has been roped in by the Bangalore Traffic Police to be the brand ambassador for their campaign for auto drivers. The advertisement which shows Sudeep in an auto driver’s uniform was shot in Bangalore on Sunday.
The picture of Sudeep in an auto driver’s uniform will be used to create awareness among auto drivers about following traffic rules and safety standards. The police believe Sudeep’s popularity will help streamline standards of auto rickshaw and drivers in Bangalore.
By being a part of this campaign, Sudeep has joined the long list of celebrities who have been the ambassadors of Bangalore Traffic Police. Earlier, Dharmasthala Dharmadikari D Veerendra Heggade and ace cricketer Rahul Dravid were roped in as the brand ambassadors.
