There are many things you could imagine a former Pakistani Army chief and president doing, but dancing to Dilli Wali Girlfriend is probably not one of them. Yet, that is exactly what happened.
In a video that has gone viral, Pervez Musharraf can be seen dancing to the hit number from Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starrer, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani. The video was tweeted by senior Pakistani journalist, Hamid Mir. Many who were not pleased by the scene have taken to sharing and commenting on the video.
According to the Indian Express, Musharraf's counsel filed an application with an anti-terrorism court in Islamabad on 13 January, asking for security because he was getting "serious security threats". He asked for security so that he could come out of his self-imposed exile and present himself in the court for an ongoing case.
Here is the short clip that Hamid Mir tweeted:
Do you know who is this man dancing in a night club and where is his pain these days? pic.twitter.com/9R5xVqLTHA— Hamid Mir (@HamidMirGEO) January 21, 2017
The location of the night club where the former dictator was dancing is not confirmed. Pakistani tweeples saw the opportunity and did not let it go.
Some saw the funnier side...
