New Delhi, Jan 29: Delhi Police hopes to cash in actor-director Farhan Akthar in an advertisment to educate people on crime against women.

"Now we are planning an audio-visual campaign with the actor on the issue. Talks are on," said Rajan Bhagat, Delhi Police spokesperson.

Farhan earlier had appeared in a newspaper campaign that featured him appealing to Delhiites to help violence end against women.

"Make Delhi safer for Delhi. Are you man enough to join me? Don't sit back and allow violence against women. Fight it. Report it. Call Women's Helpline 1091," he had said in the advertisment.

Earlier in Dec, cricketer Virendar Sehwag was roped in by the Delhi police urging people to wear helmets and follow traffic rules.

"Celebrities are being roped in to popularise our initiatives. We are trying get more personalities to promote such causes and help curb crime," a senior police official said.

Former cricketers Kapil Dev, Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi, Bishen Singh Bedi, Atul Wassan and Kirti Azad were the prominent faces that figured in the Traffic police's programmes.
