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.
Amitabh Bachchan has always shared a close bond with the city police and was all praises for the families of the policemen who sacrifice their personal time so that police can serve the city. The efforts of the policemen have been well documented in the calendar.
This time the much-awaited calendar by Pravin Talan has more realistic photographs taken through out the year, covering the herculean tasks of Mumbai Police across various seasons and festivals, making it one of the most enriched and liveliest calendars yet.
Pravin Talan’s work has always been regarded as original, soulful and creative. Talking about the calendar he says,” capturing the spirit of Mumbai in the shadows of police was a roller coaster ride in spite of all the jostling at mass gatherings or getting all drenched in pouring rains.”
Pravin Talan has made it a mission to photograph men and women in uniform and in past four years photographed almost every Indian Defence and Central Armed Police Force that includes Army, Navy, Coast Guard, NSG, BSF, CISF and CRPF. He has been bringing out Mumbai Police calendar since past three years and for his enormous talent and selfless service to the force, Amitabh Bachchan felicitated him on behalf of Mumbai Police by presenting him a memento on the prestigious stage of Umang.
