Rajkummar Rao, who will next be seen as Gujarati entrepreneur Raghu Mehta in his upcoming film Made In China, took promotional duties to a whole new level. The actor shared a hilarious Instagram video of himself selling a pen to Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio on Sunday. No kidding!
In the video captioned “When Raghu Bhai met Leo Bhai. #MadeInChina” that Rajkummar shared on Saturday, he gives a hilarious spin to Dicaprio’s final scene from the movie ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’,where Leonardo can be seen asking a man to sell him off a pen.
Adding a twist in the scene, Rajkummar enters with the clip convincing the Hollywood actor in Hindi: “Leo Bhai kem chho! Arre Leo Bhai, ye jo pen hai, ye pen aapki kahani hai par ye jo refill hai, wo aapka hero hai. Aap pen ko nahi refill ko becho. Sell hero, you will feel like the king of the world.”
The clip ends with Leonardo DiCaprio applauding the skills of Raghu Mehta. Rajkummar Rao’s unique post is stealing the show on the Internet as over one lakh Instagram users have watched the video till now.
