Nowadays, we cannot guess or predict what could go viral and what may see the dust. Weird, sensible, crazy, whacky, sober; use as many adjectives as you may but they won’t suffice for the videos that go bonkers on the internet. So here I pick 5 videos featuring Bollywood celebs that went viral.
Why This Kolaveri Di Official Video | Dhanush, Anirudh
19 Million Views in 3 Weeks, 6.5 Million Facebook Shares, 10,000 Tweets in a single week, and I guess there’s no point in me mentioning the number of views the video has today. Dhanush, today is a popular household name and ironically needs no introduction, does he? The video was released on 16th November 2011; its been almost 3 years and today Dhanush has already got a classy Bollywood flick under his kitty.
AIB: Alia Bhatt – Genius of the Year | Alia Bhatt
“Annginath trolls aur comments ko madde nazar rakhte hue, ye Social Media, Alia Bhatt ko Genius of the Year karaar karti hai”
I’d rather not discuss why Alia Bhatt is called as the Genius of the Year. And if you really don’t know why; you should actually get trolled on this. It all started on Coffee With Karan and the rest is ‘tragically epic’ I’d say. By no means do I doubt her intelligence but she’s certainly impressed us with her ingenious answers. And even so, being a sporting spirit that she is; she actually is a part of the video that profoundly takes a dig at her IQ. Kudos to Alia for this!
My Name Is Ranveer Ching | Ranveer Singh
It’s been just 4 years since his debut and Ranveer Singh Bhavnani (yes that’s his original name) has already established himself as a class act in Bollywood. Ranveer Singh is seen doing the ManchowRap in this video and yes the video is pure madness. The music video was shot for the Chinese Food Brand, Ching. Ranveer Singh has been signed as Ching’s Brand Ambassador, and here’s one crazy fact- he has penned the Rap himself.
Nayak 2: The Common Man Rises | Alok Nath
He Came, He Spoke, He Conquered and He Quit!!!
This sums up the rise and eventually an impromptu end to Arvind Kejriwal’s reign as the Chief Minister of Delhi. Ironic as it may seem, his reign as the CM was compared with the movie Nayak, starring Anil Kapoor. Kejriwal became a popular muse and the butt of jokes as a reason of his political antics. AIB came up with a crazy video, spoofing Kejriwal. The video features Alok Nath a.k.a Babuji, advising Kejriwal.
Imran Khan Answers Questions About Being Gay | Imran Khan
For Imran Khan, ‘Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na’ happened and after that koi na jaane kya hua. His Bollywood career has been a mixed bag. Delhi Belly had a super-crazy script and may be that saved him. Other than that he has had mediocre success with his roles. However, in this particular video we see him answering questions about gay people. Given the stand-point over homosexuality in India, this was a moral thing to do.
