Pakistani reporter Chand Nawab puts his viral ‘Karachi se’ video up for auction, the bid price is shocking
Pakistani reporter Chand Nawab, popularly known for botching his lines, recently put his viral “Karachi Se” video up for sale as a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) on the Foundation app.
In Salman Khan’s superhit film Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui character was inspired by the real Chand Nawab. Neither the name nor the profession was changed. However, where in the real video where Chand could be seen repeatedly goofing up a seemingly straightforward take in a railway station, in the film Nawaz’s shot was fixated at a Karachi paan shop, reporting for Urdu channel 92 News. In the movie’s scene the actor is showcased to be trying to tell his audience what makes the city’s paan so popular.
The similarity remains as the reel Chand struggles with his lines, as always, but the clincher is when he tries to put the paan in his mouth at the end of his piece to camera.
The real reporter is once again in news as he decided to put is viral ‘Karachi se’ video for auction on NFT, which is a platform that helps digital creators earn money through their digital artwork. The minimum bid price Nawab has set for the viral video is 20 Ethereum tokens or $63,604.20 (around Rs 46,74,700).
