An influencer from Kolkata made headlines earlier this week when he illegally parked his car on the Maa Flyover in Kolkata to shoot a dance video. Sandy Saha, an acclaimed influencer, shared a video of himself dancing on the flyover to address the episode wherein a purported image of the Kolkata flyover was featured in an Uttar Pradesh government advertisement.
After the incident, a case was filed by the Kolkata Police on Tuesday as Sandy Saha was asked to appear at the Kolkata Police headquarters.
Saha took to Facebook to share a video of him dancing on the Maa Flyover as it rained heavily. The clip shows him dancing to the 1999 song Main Aai Hoon UP Bihar Lootne from the film Shool.

Sandy Saha’s video, since being shared online, has gone crazy viral with over 1.4 million views and several comments.
Saha, along with the driver of the car is now facing legal trouble as the Kolkata Police has filed a case on its own initiative and issued a notice to the owner of the vehicle on Tuesday morning. The traffic control room in Lalbazar identified the owner of the vehicle after watching the CCTV footage of the flyover along with the video posted by Sandy Saha on social media.
The Maa Flyover has been at the centre of controversy since earlier this month after a purported image of the Kolkata flyover was featured in an Uttar Pradesh government advertisement to project the economic progress of the state under its Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
The advert, titled ‘Transforming Uttar Pradesh under Yogi Adityanath’, featured a picture of the Maa Flyover painted in blue-and-white colours synonymous with the TMC government, along with high-rises and industries juxtaposed below a cut-out of Yogi Adityanath.
