A third comment can be read as "So much of fake excitement for useless PR. Every one of them must have gone back to straight face and into their mobile after the cut. Also it was not the cast it was the marketing team Also they must have gotten permission from the police to shoot it. So the inconvenience is not because of them... They are not that smart."
