In a video that has gone viral, a police officer from Madhya Pradesh can be seen yelling an iconic dialogue from the cult movie, Sholay, while patrolling in the Jhabua district.
KL Dangi is the police officer in-charge of Kalyanpura police station in Jhabua district of Madhya Pradesh. In the clip that has been widely circulated on social media, Dangi can be seen standing near a police car as he patrols the district. He can then be heard saying a slightly tweaked version of the aforementioned dialogue which went on to achieve cult status after Sholay's release in theatres.

In the 1975 movie, legendary actor Amzad Khan, who played the role of Gabbar immortalised the dialogue when he said that mothers in nearby villages use his name to scare their kids while putting them to sleep. In the recent viral video, Dangi says, "Kalyanpura se 50-50 km ki duri par jab bachcha rotaa hai to maa kehti hai chup ho ja beta nahi to Dangi aa jayega."
