Even Federal Minister Asad Umar has jumped the #PawriHoRaiHai bandwagon. Asad Umar was seen recreating the viral video with Instagram influencer Dananeer Mobeen on an episode of Jashan-e-Cricket.
The Federal Minister and the Instagram influencer both appeared as guests on Geo News sports show, Jashan-e-Cricket hosted by Shahzad Iqbal. Former Pakistan fast bowler Sikander Bakht was also a guest on the show.
It started off when Dananeer created yet another rendition of her meme video;
“Ye mai hun, ye Shahzad bhai hain, ye Jashan-e-Cricket ka set hai, aur ye hamari cricket ki pawri hori hai, [This is me, this is Shahzad bhai, this is the set of Jashan-e-Cricket, and this is our cricket party]”
Asad Umar was quick to offer his own rendition of the meme saying;
“Ye mai hu, ye Geo ka set hai aur ye hamari pawri hori hai, [This is me, this is the set of Geo, and this is us partying]”
So what was an Instagram model doing on the sets of a sports talks show? Apparently, Dananeer is very fond of cricket, like the average Pakistani. She revealed that she has been playing the sport with her cousins since her childhood, even revealing that;
“I never accept it when I get dismissed, …. I liked to bat rather than to bowl.”
After several Pakistani celebs, now a politician and federal minister of state has created a version of the meme.
This viral meme also blew up across the border, with Indian corporations using #PawriHoRaiHai to make adverts and public service messages.
