If you’ve seen Bajrangi Bhaijaan, the Salman Khan hit with the most adorable child actor, you’ll know who Chand Nawab is. Even if your memory is a little foggy, you’ll soon remember who he was and this news will be even more interesting! The real Chand Nawab is here and he’s looking to earn some heavy cash.
Who Is Chand Nawab?
Chand Nawab is a Pakistani reporter/journalist. He made a video in 2008 in which he was trying to report how people were excitedly rushing home from Karachi. The video went viral on Youtube because he was unable to report it due to the clamor of people and their constant interruptions. His annoyance at that is also visible in the video which is why it became so viral, it’s actually really funny.
This being Chand Nawab’s short meeting with fame, he was granted another chance to stardom in 2015.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan version of Chand Nawab
The Salman Khan starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan was released in 2015. It became a huge hit at the box office but here’s the catch. The character that Nawazudin Siddique is based off on is the same viral reporter. Siddique acts as the Pakistani field reporter who doesn’t have a really successful career until later.
They have recreated the scene of Chand Nawab’s viral video in the movie. This gave the OG Chand Nawab even more fame. Many remembered him and started reminiscing about his videos.

Cameraman Kamil Yusuf ke saath, Chand Nawab, Indus News, Karachi,” are the iconic lines. The Pakistani Journalist had no idea at the time that such a simple and routine coverage would become a global hit.
