From politicians, movie stars to cricketers, the “Pawri ho rhi hai” trend was a hit with almost everyone who watched the video. And the latest to join the viral trend is Delhi Police, who shared an on-trend tweet after raiding a restaurant serving hookah in the city.
In a series of tweets, the official handle of Delhi Additional Deputy Commissioner of Police posted a picture of seized Hookah, which have been banned by the Delhi government, along with a caption that read, “Yehe Hum hain.. Yehe Hooke Hain.. Aur ab Pawri nahi ho rahi hai (This is us, these are hookahs and the now no party is going on).”
Seizing 24 hookahs from the restaurant-bar located in Rajouri Garden, they concluded the tweet with a warning that read, “Some Pawris are not only injurious to health they are illegal too.”

Later, netizens also borrowed the pawri girl’s catchy line and came up with their own “pawri” memes and jokes.
