Pakistani comedian Akbar Chaudhry mimicked Shashi Tharoor and the Congress leader requested the Pakistani comic to imitate the Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.
The exchange of tweets between the two happened started with Akbar posting a video about Tharoor’s English.
In the video, the comedian pokes fun at the politician by demonstrating how people can prepare a recipe to “speak English like Shashi Tharoor”.
He then demonstrates three steps — making a shake out of an Oxford dictionary and drinking it, injecting one of Tharoor’s interviews in his veins, and later crushing the pages of the dictionary and snorting them.
Tharoor seemed to be impressed by the comedian and requested him to imitate Imran Khan.
I'd love to, however the equivalent video on Khan sb would be on how to win the fancy of beautiful women, and since I am a comedian and on top of that an engineer too therefore thoroughly deficient in relevant experience.— Akbar Chaudry (@AkbarChaudry) February 28, 2021
Thank you so much for sharing this! 🙏
Tharoor’s vocabulary has been a trend on the internet, many a times.
I'm sorry if one of my tweets y'day gave rise to an epidemic of hippopotomonstrosesquipedaliophobia!— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) October 11, 2018
[Don't bother looking it up: it's just a word describing a fear of long words].
But #TheParadoxicalPrimeMinister contains no words longer than Paradoxical! https://t.co/8h0zkcHnb2
My new book, THE PARADOXICAL PRIME MINISTER, is more than just a 400-page exercise in floccinaucinihilipilification. Pre-order it to find out why!https://t.co/yHuCh2GZDM— Shashi Tharoor (@ShashiTharoor) October 10, 2018
