American comedian Hasan Minhaj left people across the world laughing when he tweeted a hilarious conversation he had with his father about getting a million followers on Instagram. The 33-year-old, who recently hit a million followers on Instagram, tweeted about how his father trolled him for having fewer followers than Bollywood actor Shah Rukh Khan.
In the message, Minhaj wrote: “Hit 1 million followers dad! Hope you’re proud,” along with a screenshot of his official Instagram account showing the statistic.
However, his father’s prompt reply was: “That’s 17 million less than Shah Rukh Khan.”
Minhaj tweeted the conversation with the caption: “So lucky to have family in my life.”
