Dayanand also told the audience a real story of a home fitted with a sub-standard door lock that easily fell apart with a slight nudge, and hence, stressed the fact it’s a homeowner’s responsibility to ensure the quality door locks and safety products are installed at homes.

Dayanand Shetty, a Television star from the renowned series CID, said, “Playing an on-screen law enforcement officer has given me a firmer understanding of the importance of safety for ourselves and our families. I appreciate the initiative from Godrej Locks and I am excited to be a part of ‘Har Ghar Surakshit’. People need to be made more aware of security threats and be made aware of the ways they can improve their security for making India safer.”
