Even as Arvind Kejriwal is poised to take on the very somber role Delhi's chief minister, the Aam Aadmi Party chief proved that he can take a joke by appearing in an online fake interview with a fake Times Now anchor Arnab Goswami, produced by the The Viral Fever Media Labs.
Lampooning Goswami's manner of shouting down the guests on his show, the online video is called "Barely Speaking With Arnub."
"Arvind Kejriwal, a man, who based his moustache, hairstyle and entire political career on the Anil Kapoor film Nayak," says the anchor.
Arnub then asks him, "When you go out in public dressed like this, are you trying to say that the Aam Aadmi has a bad dressing sense?"
But Kejriwal hits back: "My political opponents criticise me for my political statements, you are criticising me for my fashion statement, my wife keeps on criticising me for my blank bank statement."
The video also flashes snippets of information like "Kejriwal is so revolutionary that he only takes showers from water cannons."
On the morning of counting day, Kejriwal encouraged his Twitter followers to watch the video - can't ignore Delhi's next chief.
