“Maa flyover is the pride of Kolkata. All of us are proud of it. Though I don’t belong to any political party, I am proud that the flyover was made during Mamata didi’s rule,” said Sandy.

Soon after the video went viral, Kolkata Police had asked him to appear before them as he did not take permission.

“It was my fault as I didn’t know that dancing on the flyover was not allowed. The car driver and the car owner were summoned and fined and they have informed me about the proceedings,” claimed Sandy.

Claiming that he got several positive comments for the video but some even slammed him for the security reason as he was dancing during the rush hours.

Asked whether he got any feedback from any political party to which the influencer replied in negative.

It can be recalled that on September 11, Kolkata’s Maa flyover featured in national newspaper daily advertising Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s and even after the national daily sought an apology, things didn’t stop there. War of words started between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal over the advertisement.
