A stand-up comedian's video on how to speak like Shashi Tharoor has gone crazy viral. And, netizens are enjoying it a lot. The video was shared on Twitter by comedian Akbar Chaudry, a Pakistani comedian, and in it, he hilariously talks about ways one can try and speak like the Thiruvananthapuram MP.
Akbar shared the video with the caption, "How to speak English like @ShashiTharoor #ShashiTharoor #Defenestrate #Farrago #Floccinaucinihilipilification (sic)." He showed three steps in which one can perfectly master Shashi Tharoor's impeccable English, and the clip is a must-watch.

The video begins with Akbar throwing a copy of Oxford Dictionary into a juicer and then drinking the mixture. Then, he sits on a sofa with two drips connected to his arms - one connected to a laptop playing Tharoor's video and another to a saline bottle marked Oxford Dictionary. The last step shows him putting the dictionary into a pestle and mortar to grind it into a mixture and then snorting the powder.
As soon as he finishes the steps, the scene shifts, and Akbar starts speaking like Shashi Tharoor. The funny part is that he is actually lip-syncing to the politician's viral speeches. For the uninitiated, Shashi Tharoor is known for his impeccable fluency in the English language and often dropping big words that people have never heard in their lives like Farrago or Floccinaucinihilipilification.
SHASHI THAROOR REACTS
Akbar's video went crazy viral and managed to garner more than 211.3k views and several thousand likes. Even Shashi Tharoor enjoyed the clip a lot and retweeted the post. However, he also had a special request. He tweeted, "Next one on @ImranKhanPTI please!?> @AkbarChaudry (sic)," with laughter and praying emoticon.February 27, 2021
Shashi Tharoor's tweet also garnered several likes. His followers appreciated him for taking things lightly.
