If you thought that the buzz over singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran will be over now that he has flown out of India, then you are mistaken. He is back in the news and no, it is not about yet another meme that has been circulated about his expressions at Farah Khan’s Bollywood bash hosted for him after his concert. This time, it is a video clip that has been doing the rounds on the internet that has brought Ed Sheeran in the news. In the video, the singer can be seen singing the track ‘Chalo Ayodhya Chalein’ and it is just hilarious. While we know that it is a fake video and it is not really the singer himself singing this, it nonetheless makes for an interesting watch and has gone viral.
The short video clip has been taken from Sheeran’s recent concert in Mumbai. And a mischief-maker has simply changed the audio of the clip and replaced it with Ayodhya anthem that appeals to the Hindus of the country to come together and help in constructing the Ram Temple in Ayodhya. Watching Ed singing, or rather where he appears to be singing, lyrics like “tel laga lo dabur ka, naam mita do babar ka” is just too funny for words.

The release of this doctored video clip has also led to a string of similar videos being posted online, where the audio has been switched. Here are some of the hilarious ones shared by the Twitterati:

The dispute over Ayodhya is an age-old political, historical and socio-religious debate in India between Hindus and Muslims and is centred on a plot of land in the city of Ayodhya, located in Faizabad district, Uttar Pradesh. Coming back to these videos, in all of them, the audio has been juxtaposed with a completely unrelated video and the result as you can see is hilarious. Let us know your thoughts on these!
