Indian politician Shashi Tharoor is enjoying and reacts to Pakistani comedian Akbar Chaudhry’s hilarious video to take on his impeccable oratory skills. He now wants the comic to do his next skit on Prime Minister Imran Khan!
Tharoor is widely known for his eloquence. The congress leader uses an expansive vocabulary during his speeches and interviews. Moreover, this is something that Chaudhry latched on to for his comic take.
In the video, Chaudhry pokes fun at the Indian politician by demonstrating to his followers how they too can “speak English like Shashi Tharoor”.
In the first step, we see him making a milkshake out of the Oxford Dictionary and drinking it. Then in the second, the comedian ‘injects’ a video of Tharoor’s interview directly in his veins while also taking a drip from a dictionary.
But wait… it does not end there. In the third step, Chaudhry crushes a dictionary and snorts it. So, if you follow these steps, you are likely to speak like Tharoor. At least according to the comedian, LOL!
In case you are wondering what the results were, it was nothing but perfection.
Here is the video, enjoy!
Soon after posting it on social media, the video went viral, especially in India. Now, Shashi Tharoor is a fan and has a request for the Pakistani comedian as he reacts to the video. Taking to Twitter, he posted, “Next one on Imran Khan please!?”
Speaking to Geo TV, the comedian revealed that his friends from across the border have told him that the video is a hit on Indian WhatsApp groups.
When asked about the inspiration behind the video, Chaudhry said he had done a video on “How to Speak English Like a Burger” in the past and the response he got was “very good”.
The comedian said when the video went viral the idea was floating in his head to do similar stuff. He shared that close to two weeks ago, he had come across a tweet saying that this year’s English exam for the Civil Superior Services (CSS) was set by Tharoor. So, it gave him the idea!
The comedian, who is part of the improvisational comedy group ‘Lol Waalay’, said that he had been hopeful that his effort would reach Tharoor.
“Obviously, I didn’t believe it would happen, but somehow lots of people tagged him [Tharoor] in it and he replied,” said Chaudhry.
Another Pakistani to have crossed the border was the pawri girl who became such a hit that the famous Indian music producer Yashraj Mukhate made a remix of it!
