Bad translation can not only lead to confusion but also start a laughter riot, and that’s exactly what happened on Twitter when a bunch of desi folks tried to translate popular Hindi songs into English. Mostly renaming Pakistani singer Atif Aslam’s hit numbers, Twitterati are now hooked to an unusual social media challenge.
It all started when someone shared online that a girl from Islamabad referred the singer’s superhit Aadat song as Habit. As the person admitted that it took him some time to figure out the song, others attempted to change titles and lyrics of his songs into English — and the results are hilarious.

Soon, it inspired other desi fans on Twitter as well. While some were easy to understand at one go, others struggled to guess the correct answer.
