After 11 years, Jhoom by Ali Zafar is making ripples on both sides of the border. Leading Bollywood actors have used it in their Instagram reels, and now the lyrics are being used in physics exams
A video of an 11th grader choosing a somewhat entertaining yet disappointing approach to taking his physics board exam is going viral. He answered ever with question with a line from Ali Zafar’s song Jhoom.
The disgruntled teacher who felt utterly let down created the video. Here is how the singer responded to the video after it was shared.
‘This viral video was posted on the WhatsApp app. I request my students not to look for physics in my songs, even though physics is everywhere, including in the lyrics of this song. But then respect the teaching and teachers while studying,’ tweeted Teefa in trouble actor.
یہ وائرل وڈیو وٹسُ ایپ میں موسول ہوئی۔ میری طالب علموں سے التجا ہے کہ میرے گیتوں میں physics نہ تلاش کریں اگرچہ دیکھا جائے تو physics تو اس گانے کے اشعار سمیت ہر جگہ ہی موجود ہے۔ لیکن پھر پڑھائ کے وقت پڑھائی اور اساتذہ کا احترام کریں۔ 😇 pic.twitter.com/vjl4Mbo5Pw
