After turning down Hollywood, ZaidAliT gets noticed by Bollywood!

Bollywood actress Sonakshi Sinha seems to be a ZaidAliT fan

Web Desk April 02, 2015

After turning down a Hollywood film in early January, Pakistani-Canadian YouTube sensation Zaid Ali recently came to the notice of Dabangg actress Sonakshi Sinha, who couldn't help but tweet about how one of his videos had her in splits.

The actress's amusement was evident from her tweet on Tuesday.

The 19-year-old Zaid Ali, who is more commonly known by his internet handle ZaidAliT, became famous with his comic YouTube videos which regularly poke fun at topics close to the heart of billions of desis all around the world. His Facebook page, where he regularly uploads his videos, has a whopping two million likes.

In 2010 blockbuster Dabangg, then-debutante Sonakshi told Salman, "Thappar se darr nahi lagta saab, pyar se lagta hai." The line quickly passed into the annals of classic Bollywood dialogues.

In a video released early this year, Zaid demonstrates the horrific consequences of repeating this dialogue at home with one's mother.

Watch the video that had Sonakshi Sinha split her sides with laughter:

Last month, Zaid arrived in Lahore to connect with his roots. The young comedian apparently had an amazing time roaming around the city, sightseeing and sampling Lahore's famous food streets.

Syed | 7 years ago | Reply Zaid Ali is a great talent, with great observation and great delivery skills. I think he should go to big screen where ever he gets an opportunity. Go Zaid... makes people laugh.. doing a good community service.
