Check out the bid price for the real Chand Nawab's viral 'Karachi Se' video

Real Chand Nawab has listed his viral ‘Karachi Se’ video as a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) for sale on the Foundation app.

Almost every Bollywood fan has seen Bajrangi Bhaijaan and remembers its sequences not just because of Salman Khan, but also because of Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s famous performance.

One of the film’s most memorable scenes is when ‘Chand Nawab,’ the figure of a reporter played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, is repeatedly interrupted by passengers while reporting from the Karachi railway station.

People were surprised to learn that Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s portrayal was inspired by a real Pakistani TV journalist, Chand Nawab, who became renowned in 2008 after uploading his BTS of reporting.

The Real Chand Nawab sprang to prominence following the release of Bajrangi Bhaijan on the big screen, and he is currently making headlines once more.

He has made his viral “Karachi Se” video available for purchase as a Non-Fungible Token (NFT) via the Foundation app, a platform that assists digital producers in earning money through their digital artwork. The minimum bid for Chand Nawab’s viral video is 20 Ethereum tokens, or $63,604 (around Rs 10,684,823).

Nawab wrote on the platform, “I’m Chand Nawab, a journalist, and reporter by profession. In 2008, a video of me surfaced on YouTube in which I fumbled while reporting Eid Festival frenzy at a Railway station. While reporting, I was contently interrupted by people, my fumbling and constant irritation made this video viral getting millions of views on YouTube and Facebook.”
