Fans of Shehnaaz Gill stormed the Minister Irani’s comment section thanking her for sharing Shehnaaz’s video. Other people praised the minister in the comment section of the video calling her savage, cool and funny.
For the unversed, a few days ago, a Pakistani influencer Dananeer Mobeen shared a video of herself which went viral. In the video, she can be seen introducing the viewers to herself, her car and her friends who are enjoying a party.
In the video, Dananeer says, “Yeh humaari car hai, ye hum hai, aur yeh humari pawri ho rahi hai (This is my car, this is me and this is us partying).”
However, the video went super viral on this side of the border as well specifically due to her unique-yet-funny pronunciation of the word party as ‘pawri’.
Later, music composer Yashraj Mukhate, famous for his hilarious dialogue remixes, now released a video of Dananeer’s dialogue where he has converted her dialogue into a song. Yashraj’s video spread like a wildfire on Indian social media garnering 4.3 million times on Instagram.
This video was that much loved by netizens that the pronunciation of the party aka “pawri” is now being compared to the students studying English honors.
