Gopi was seen acting out his signature move from the 1994 Malayalam film Commissioner very enthusiastically. Perhaps too enthusiastically. Watch from 2:25 onwards below.
The incident took place on Sunday during Gopi’s road show in the city. Police had permitted the BJP candidate to campaign in the first half of the Corporation road, while the second half was allotted to LDF.
It’s not clear how this started, but according to Mathrubhumi, Gopi’s action was a response to LDF workers. The workers reportedly taunted Gopi with the ‘shit’ action to which he responded in kind.
However, Manorama reports it began with Gopi, who enacted the well-known move on the request of BJP workers which prompted LDF workers to give it back in kind. The exchange took place minutes before campaigning was due to end in Kerala, the report said.
All the Lok Sabha seats in Kerala go to polls on Tuesday in the third phase of the elections.
