Panaji: Appreciating Goa DGP Aditya Arya for launching an initiative for `image makeover` of the police force by showcasing Bollywood flick `Singham` to them, actress Pooja Bhatt said she felt proud of the gesture.

"It is something to feel satisfy about. I am basking in glory although I have not produced the film," Bhatt told reporters on the sidelines of a press conference organized yesterday to announce the South Asian Film Festival (SAFF) beginning today.

Bhatt said that the movie was really "a good piece of work" and Ajay Devgn was an "inspiration" to many.

Arya had held a special screening of `Singham`, casting Ajay Devgn as a police protagonist, for the state police force whose image has taken a beating over a period of time owing to the allegations of sexual abuse, drug trade and dereliction of duty.

Screening `Singham` was part of an exercise launched by the top cop, who assumed the charge recently, to inculcate discipline in the force.
