Congress leader Shashi Tharoor’s complex English is a phenomenon in itself. His “exasperated farrago” of incomprehensible words and to-the-point accent has baffled us more than once. And not just in India, his love and mastery of English is an acclaimed fact in the neighbouring country too. A Pakistani comedian recently made a hilarious video on how to speak English with Tharoorian perfection and even Tharoor is impressed. The video begins with comedian Akbar Chaudry putting an Oxford dictionary in a blender and making a smoothie, then shows himself on a drip with the label of the same dictionary and finally acting to make a powder of the dictionary and snort it like drugs.
When all of this is done, Chaudary plays audio of Tharoor’s speech and lip-syncs as if he is the one speaking.
Take a look at the hilarious video.
The video has been shared over a thousand times in the past three days and has left the Internet ROFLing. Even Shahshi Tharoor is impressed by the creative mind behind the video and asked Chuadry to make a video on Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan next.
The netizens were left guffawing at this hilarious video and the concoction of Tharoorian English.
