Maha Metro, with an intention to promote the importance of following traffic rules has launched an unique and interesting campaign in Nagpur. As part of the campaign, Maha Metro has given the task to a few actors to play mythological characters such Yamraj, Chitagupt, Bhima, Lord Krishna, etc. on the road and urge traffic violators to follow traffic rules.
