Bollywood filmmaker Rohit Shetty has been trending on Twitter after news of gangster Vikas Dubey’s encounter was likened to his storylines.
Rohit was the subject of memes as Twitter users poked fun at the filmmaker.
Reportedly, Indian police shot dead one of the nation’s most notorious gangsters a day after he was arrested.

As news of the Dubey’s extrajudicial killing surfaced, Twitter users felt that it was something straight from Rohit Shetty’s films.
The filmmaker is known for his action films which usually feature cars that topple over.
Fans on the popular social media site told Rohit Shetty that Uttar Pradesh officers have provided him with a readymade script.
