When the controversy around Ae Dil Hai Mushkil and Fawad Khan’s presence in it broke out, there were innumerable opinions floating around whether the demand of him leaving the country was right or wrong. While there are millions of fans of Khan in the country who found the demand unreasonable, there were many who spewed hatred against him. But here we have comedian Daniel Fernandes who has a valid reason for hating the actor. He can’t afford to like him, he says in his stand up comedy act, because well, Karan Johar had to pay Rs 5 crore for smooth release of his film!
“I have legit reasons for hating Fawad Khan. Number one, I cannot afford to like Fawad Khan. I don’t have Rs 5 crores on me, only 4.5. Secondly, Fawad was born in Pakistan, I was born in India. What choice do I have? Hate is our default setting right? There hasn’t been a software upgrade since 1947. And third reason, nobody should be that good looking! He just looks too good. You have to hate that guy,” he says.
The comedian is also very jealous of the chaiwala who’s photo went viral on social media because he has blue eyes and Fernandes doesn’t. He gets modelling contracts and Fernandes?! Not sure. But amid the laughter, he makes a very important point that why does a chaiwala or vegetable seller being good looking surprise us so much? It’s not birth right of the financially-fit to look good, isn’t it?
