If you are into International Comedy, you must know the name of American Comedian with Indian Origin: Hasan Minhaj. He is the same man who dared to diss American President Donald Trump in the White House. He is the same man who dared to diss Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia. And now, he has dared to turn to the Great Indian Elections.
In his Netflix original Series ‘Patriot act with Hasan Minhaj’, Hasan explores the modern cultural and political landscape with depth and sincerity. In each weekly episode, he uses his unique comedic voice and storytelling skill to investigate the larger trends shaping the fragmented world. According to Netflix, Minhaj is the first Indian-American host of a weekly comedy show.
Last time when he took the issue of Crown Prince and how he allegedly ordered the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Netflix removed the episode. Still, Minhaj aired the episode on his official YouTube Account.
This time, Minhaj took the Indian General Election to comment on. With 900 million eligible voters, the Indian elections are something that everyone in the world has a watch upon.
In the episode, Hasan compared Indian Prime Narendra Modi with American President Donald Trump. How one leader (Trump) loves to shake hands with others, while the other (Modi) loves to hug everyone he meets, how both the leaders enchant ‘India First’ and ‘America First’ in their speeches.
Minhaj also interviews Congress leader Shashi Tharoor in the interview. Tharoor, being the ‘superstar’ of Netizen, holds good with Minhaj.
At last of his act, while talking about the Indian-Pakistan cricket match, he says, “I have friends on both sides. They are like.. India win... Pakistan win... India win... Pakistan win... And I’m like, No dude, the British won.”
