Superstar Amitabh Bachchan unveiled the third edition of Mumbai Police calendar, shot by ace photographer Pravin Talan, at the glittering star-studded event Umang along with Commissioner of Police, Mumbai Mr. Dattatray Padsalgikar and other senior officials of the police force.

From crowd management in massive rallies like Maratha Kranti Morcha to management of religious festivals like Ganpati and Eid, it not only showcases the multi cultural and religious flavor of the city but the humongous task of maintaining law and order at such times.

The fish eye view of the police man on patrol boat taking up the security challenges on the daunting sea or traffic cop braving pouring rains are amongst some of the more unforgettable shots. The calendar as usual has it’s signature shots of warmth and human connect where a policeman on the beach smiles at children making sand houses, or a senior citizen confiding in a smiling policeman.
