An Indian TV journalist reporting from Ukraine on the country’s ongoing war with Russia has gone viral on social media. The reporter’s theatrical reportage has drawn in a plethora of memes and remixes on Twitter, with many editing popular Bollywood songs into the viral footage. In the piece, she was reporting from war-torn Ukraine and could be seen presenting the news with some dramatic gesticulations. Now, from raps to “Illegal Weapon 2.0”, all sorts of remixes and edits have been made out of the situation.

Live TV gaffes are not rare by any stretch of the imagination. Case in point: a panelist on a live TV debate once broke into a dance after it appeared that she could not get a chance to speak. The panelist in question is environmental activist Roshni Ali, who was speaking on the channel during a debate on firecracker ban on Diwali. The segment saw a heated debate break out over the matter, where Ali, not being given a chance to speak amid the ruckus, broke out into sudden dance moves. The old clip goes viral on Twitter every now and then. Ali had in 2020 filed a PIL in the Calcutta High Court, seeking a ban on firecrackers amidst the pandemic, Times of India had reported. In the video, she can be seen making a case for a ban on firecrackers before the debate grows heated.
