Yesterday Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani starrer Baaghi 2 hit screens to some great occupancy rate, forcing trade analysts to believe that it is going to be the next smashing hit. The film’s lead pair left no stone unturned to promote their much awaited film that would give fans a glimpse of the rumoured couple’s on screen chemistry. The duo was a part of a number of TV shows, and also gave a few interviews ahead of the film’s release. However, during one of these interviews, little did Tiger know that he would end up having an Alia Bhatt moment. Well, Tiger was asked to name the President of India during one of the interviews. He first didn’t have an answer to that question, and later, after putting in some thought, he gave the wrong answer.
The incident took place when Tiger and Disha were interacting with a popular Hindi news channel when the actor was asked to name the President of the country. Tiger first said, “Oh God! This is a tough one” and then took some time to think, only to say, “Mukherjee..Mr Mukherjee”. Needless to say, everyone was shocked. Disha, on the other hand, seemed more informed. When the question was passed onto her, she replied, “Ram Nath Kovind”.
This episode definitely reminded the viewers of Alia Bhatt’s episode of Karan Johar’s popular chat show, Koffee with Karan in 2012, when during a rapid fire round she was asked who the President of India was (back in the day) and at that moment, the actress ended up replying, “Prithviraj Chauhan”. She was accompanied with her Student of the Year co-stars Varun Dhawan and Sidharth Malhotra. What followed thereafter, were innumerable Alia Bhatt jokes , trolls and memes, taking a dig at her general knowledge and intelligence. However, the sport that she is, she ended the matter by making a spoof of herself titled, Genius of the Year with AIB.
Incidentally, Tiger Shroff will be starring in the sequel of Student of the Year. In the meantime, Baaghi 2 has opened to some phenomenal response at the ticket windows. The makers have also announced the third installment of the Baaghi franchise and all eyes are now on who will be the leading actress of the film.
