Bollywood greats urge revellers to stay safe
Two Bollywood stars have recorded crime prevention and fire safety messages to help keep people safe during a major religious festival.
Dharmendra Deol and son Sunny recorded an online message each while filming their latest movie, Yamla Pagla Deewana 2 (Mad Madder Maddest 2) in Leicester.
They made the recordings to support this year's Diwali Safety Campaign, organised by Leicestershire Police, Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service and Leicester City Council.
Chief Superintendent Rob Nixon, commander of policing in the city, said: "We are honoured these two leading Bollywood actors have taken the time to record video messages in support of our campaign. I understand that Sunny Deol has links with both the city and county as his wife is from Rutland, and his children were both born in Leicester.

"We are proud Leicester hosts one of the largest Diwali celebrations outside of India and we look forward to the lights switch-on this weekend.
"However, while we want everyone to enjoy this special time of the year with family and friends, we also want them to take a few simple safety measures.
"We hope these messages will encourage people to follow the advice."
Assistant Chief Fire and Rescue Officer Steve Lunn said: "We have looked for champions of the community to help us to spread our messages to the biggest audience possible, and who better to help us than two of Bollywood's action legends."
