Assam Police, during the last 24 hours, is in a total Bollywood mode to educate people on Fake News and password protection.

The Assam Police on Thursday afternoon made every Twitterati laugh with an innovative meme to create awareness about Fake News.

On Thursday, at 2.10 pm, the Assam Police posted the meme with two photos of Bollywood star Ayushmann Khurrana.

The photos were from Ayushmann’s 2019 film Bala were used to educate people against fake news.

In the film Bala, Ayushmann had played the role of a bald man, and had tried a number of remedies to cure his premature hair loss.

In the meme, Assam Police portrayed bald Ayushmann’s picture as “news”, and the other photo with a wig as “fake news”.

The meme drew attention of the Twitterati because of the lines added to it: “Hair lies the difference! Don’t be fooled”.

For wider view, the tweet, with hash-tags #KnowTheDifference and #AmazonFilmfareAwards, was tagged to Filmfare Awards and Ayushmann Khurrana.

The Filmfare Award handle @Filmfare also forwarded the Assam Police tweet to Ayushmann with a comment, “What say @ayushmann?”

The Assam Police probably tagged the tweet to Filmfare Awards because the mega event is scheduled to be held on January 15 in Guwahati.

On Wednesday afternoon, the Assam Police had tweeted on online safety and password protection with a meme on Riteish Deshmukh in Dhamaal.

“Your security when you set your password to password,” the words on the meme read.

The tweet was tagged to Riteish Deshmukh and Javeed Jaffri, with the ad-copy: “A weak password, even with a big W, is very easy to guess”.
