Shah Rukh’s 20-second-long video features him saying: “Party ka mahaul hai, khoob party karo. Majnu banke laila ke saath naacho, Lekin sharaab peeke gaadi mat chalao. (Live up the party mood. Dance with your beloved, but don’t drink and drive.”

Celebration jamm ke karna lekin bhool ke bhi don’t drink and drive. Nahin toh suna hai na, kanoon ke haath lambe hote hai. (Everyone knows of the reach of law yet people mess with it. But this year don’t do so. Celebrate with full energy but don’t make the mistake drink-driving. You must have heard of the immense reach of law.)”
