As we all know India’s mauka mauka adds have backfired to the extent that at its mere mention the blue jersey’s hang their heads in shame (Lolzzz)! Nevertheless have we ever wondered who this Mauka Mauka guy potraying Pakistan really is? Is he really a Pakistani or another crazy Pakistani hater Indian! Here are some of the fun facts related to this man!
- For starters, he’s not Pakistani. He’s an Indian.
In fact his name is Vishal Malhotra and he is from Delhi (most likely a Punjabi)
- He’s not an uncle like he portrays in the ads.
He’s 25 years old.
- He worked with Shahrukh Khan in a Lux add
- He also got a chance to work with Sunny Leone in Ragini MMS 2 (many would kill for that)
- He has featured in a SonyLiv.com Boss ad, KFC’s Hot and Saucy adds and Priya Gold Biscuits ad (a bit lucky for a 25 year old one must admit)
- This guy in fact is an engineer who previously worked for Accenture
- After a year, he quit his job at Accenture and enrolled himself at Balaji acting school, Mumbai (one must always follow his passion! Respect for this guy)
- The Mauka Mauka TVC was initially a one-off assignment for Vishal.
He did not feature in the second TVC. The ad makers called him back for the third one only after the first one went viral.
- Hard to believe but he used to be overweight. He shed 40 kgs before joining the film industry
- After the Mauka Mauka fame, he poses for as many as 80 selfies a day (cashing in on his shameful fame)
And finally my favourite
- He has made India a global laughing stock (LoLz! plzzzzz)
