Amidst Nupur Sharma controversy, Qatar Airways CEO’s spoof video went viral, people got caught in the affair
vasudev’s video went viral
In the ongoing campaign to boycott Qatar Airways on Twitter, suddenly a person named Vasudev caught everyone’s attention. This young man made a video and appealed to the people to boycott Qatar Airways. Vasudev said that this Qatar is the same country which had given citizenship to MF Hussain, who made obscene paintings of Hindu gods and goddesses. Today that country is giving knowledge to India on the statement of Nupur Sharma. Qatar has started expelling the Indian people there, so we also need to boycott this country. From the pronunciation of Vasudev to the background and then the wrong spelling of Boycott caught everyone’s attention.
Qatar boycott appeal
A few hours later, in response to Vasudev, a spoofed video came and it took hold. In this viral video, Vasudev is being urged to withdraw the boycott of Qatar. This video is making people laugh a lot. It is shown in this video that an Al Jazeera journalist is interviewing the CEO of Qatar Airways. In the interview, the journalist was asked what came to your mind after hearing this news? In response, the CEO says that, as soon as he received the video of the boycott, he canceled all his meetings and flew straight to Qatar. Because Vasudev, our largest shareholder, decided to boycott our airlines from the rooftop headquarters of his house. When Vasudev was doing this, there was a power cut in his neighborhood and he made this devastating video.
it’s going viral
CEO further says that Vasudev is our largest shareholder with total investment of Rs 634 50 paise. After their boycott we do not know how to conduct our operations, so we have stopped all our flights. We request Vasudev to withdraw the boycott call. The CEO says that, “This is a special kind of boycott because it starts with the spelling ‘Bycott’. The CEO also offers Vasudev to withdraw the boycott. He says, Vasudev, we will give you a ticket to make a Tiktok video. We are ready to give the entire plane. Apart from this, we will also give you two liters of petrol free of cost. Once you are back from the railway track, please consider our offer and withdraw the boycott.”
Video from June 2017
Actually this video of Qatar CEO giving interview to Al Jazeera journalist is from June 2017. This interview was taken after Saudi Arabia broke all ties with Qatar, accusing it of having links with terrorists. Countries like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, UAE, Bahrain also closed their airspace for Qatar flights. This decision was difficult for Qatar Airways. He was in Mexico during this decision. Where he returned to his country after hearing this news. In this interview, the journalists of Al Jazeera were asking questions in this regard. Obviously this spoof video has been executed brilliantly. That’s why while sharing this video, Kangana Ranaut also forgot that this video is not real.
Even Kangana could not understand the game
Sharing this video, Kangana wrote in her Instagram story, ‘This foolish man (Akbar Al Bakr) is not ashamed to bully and make fun of a poor man (Vasudev). Vasudev may be poor and unimportant to a rich man like you, but still he has the right to express his sorrow, pain and despair in any way he wants. Remember that there is a world beyond this world, where we are all equal.’
However, after some time, perhaps Kangana came to know about the reality of this video, so she immediately deleted her post. But by then the mistake had already been made. There is no dearth of people on social media looking for the fault of a celebrity. Many people had gone viral by taking a screen shot of his post.
