Going bonkers over costly gifts
In the video clip, one presenter says, “Ek shaadi hui hai, jisme itne taufe, itne taufe….., “Shaadi samajh aa gayi aapko, ab zaraa taufe sune,” before prompting co-anchor Abdullah to shed more light on the same.
She says that Suniel Shetty gifted his daughter Rs 5 crore apartment to which her co-presenter corrects and says it’s actually Rs 50 crore.
Abdullah says “Salman Khan has gifted his friend’s daughter an Audi car”. The woman anchor quotes it Rs 64 lakh, to which the former interrupts again and corrects its price at Rs 1 crore 64 lakh.
Abdullah also gets upset at one point and says, “Aap kyun kam kar rahe hai paise har cheez ka.”
Then, they list out numerous gifts received by the couple from various B-Town celeb including Jackie Shroff, Arjun Kapoor and Virat Kohli.
The duo can also be heard comparing prices of these gifts to their own currency and how their citizens can’t afford such luxury.
Remember, Pakistan is in deep economic mess and battling many challenges at home, including soaring prices of basic essentials & high inflation.
