Pak reporter Chand Nawab’s hilarious ‘Karachi se log’ video up for auction as NFT


Pakistani journalist Chand Nawab shot to fame after his video of reporting at the Karachi railway station before Eid in 2008 went viral on social media.

Now, the video has been put up for auction as an NFT (non-fungible token) on a website called ‘Foundation App’. Its minimum bid is at 20 Ethereum Tokens that amounts close to Rs 46 lakh.

The description said, ‘I’m Chand Nawab, a journalist, and reporter by profession. In 2008, a video of me surfaced on YouTube in which I fumbled while reporting Eid Festival frenzy at a Railway station. While reporting, I was contently interrupted by people, my fumbling and constant irritation made this video viral getting millions of views on YouTube and Facebook. My popularity again surged in 2016 when my viral video inspired Indian filmmaker Kabir Khan to create Nawazuddin Siddiqui’s character in his 2015 blockbuster Bajrangi Bhaijaan. I got fame overnight getting a lot of love and appreciation from India and Pakistan especially from Bollywood star Salman Khan and other cast of Bajrangi Bhaijaan.’
