The social media handles of Mumbai Police have got their game right on point as they never fail to impress the followers with creative posts. In the latest Instagram post, Mumbai Police has used 'Felix Felicis’ reference from Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince in order to highlight the importance of wearing masks amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

Referring to the famous scene from the Harry Potter film, that features Harry Potter and the Potions Master Professor Horace Slughorn, Mumbai Police has reminded people to wear masks. In the scene, Professor Slughorn gives a Felix Felicis (also called Liquid Luck) to Potter. However, Mumbai Police has used an edited image in which the Professor is seen giving a mask to Potter instead. The professor himself is also seen donning a mask in the viral image.

The picture has been captioned as, "A little bit of 'Felix Felicis' and mask by your side to ensure you stay safe from Corona". The Marathi lines in the caption mean, “The mask is not only ‘lucky’ but also effective in protecting you! The ‘magic’ of the mask is very simple, learn”.
