Where there is will, Quickgun Murugan will find a way, saar. The quirky cowboy and his majestic steed will gallantly cross the Bandra Worli Sea Link, with a little help from a four-wheeler friend. Telegu superstar Dr Rajendra Prasad, who plays the role of the desi cowboy had given a formal application to the regulating authorities of the Sea Link, requesting for special permission to ride his horse on the bridge. However, the authorities referred to the law that animals are not allowed on the newly built bridge.

Undeterred by the response of MSRDC, Quickgun came up with a brainwave. According to Plan B, he will hire an open tempo, the horse will ride in the tempo, while Quickgun will ride the horse as the tempo carries them across the Sea Link. It’s a simple case of creative interpretation of the rules without breaking them.

Dr Rajendra Prasad said, “I was disheartened by the response from the authorities. Instead of taking it seriously, they almost made fun of it. But where there is a will, there is a way. As per the rules, I can go on the Sea Link with any four-wheeler after paying the toll and I will take my tempo. My horse and I will be the cargo. It’s a simple solution.”

The character, inspired by SRK’s Rascala act in Om Shanti Om, will be crossing the Sea Link atop an open tempo later this month.
