Pakistani reporter Chaand Nawab — who became an internet sensation for his viral video — has inspired a scene in the Bollywood Eid hit Bajrangi Bhaijaan. And no one could have done justice to the role other than Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

The dynamic actor played the role of the said journalist who made a million attempts at speaking extemporaneously and pulled off the rendition video in the most hilarious way.

Those who have seen movies of Nawazuddin Siddiqui will agree that the actor has a knack of playing the most eccentric roles effortlessly. After watching Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Nawaz’s performance will stay long after you leave the theatre.

Here’s the funny scene from the movie inspired from a video that had gone viral on YouTube after Chaand Nawab of Indus News tried really hard to report amidst the hustle and bustle of the railway station:

 

The urgency, desperation, time constraint and helplessness of a reporter could not have been captured in a more apt way.

The laughter fits would not curb as you get to witness the train leaving the platform and Nawaz yaps his lines to finish his commentary before the train leaves. He takes multiple takes to get done with it but each time someone video-bombs him.

You will develop comical sympathies for the maundering journalist and the pains he has to go through to get the right shot.

    @Noddy:
    are u serious?? they completely ripoff the real life scene of chand nawab at station frame by frame , even the dialogues are same . producers of the movie must pay to chand nawab for taking inspiration from real life incident of poor man! if bollywood cant produce some thing original then at least they should have some ethics to pay to the person from whom they are benefiting.!

    @Nomi I absolutely understand, and I have nothing against Chand.
    I am just stating Legal grounds, until and unless there is no patent/format of entertainment registered anywhere, one cant claim any rights, or appeal against any recreation of the same.
    The production houses have their own legal teams, and they play their cards right.
    Thats all I am sayingRecommend
