After Bollywood celebrities, Indian soldiers have also joined the ‘Pawri Horai Hai’ trend. A video circulating on Twitter shows an Indian soldier saying, “Yeh hum hain, yeh hamari gun hai aur hum patrolling kar rahe hain” [this is us, this is our gun and we’re patrolling].
The trend started after an influencer, Dananeer Mobeen, shared a video clip partying with her friends in front of a car. In the video, she was heard saying: “Yeh hamari car hai, yeh hum hain, aur yeh hamari pawri ho rai hai” (This is our car, this is us, and this is our party).
Soon after the video went viral, ‘Pawri Ho Rai Hai’ became a major meme trend in Pakistan and also across the border. Many celebrities from Pakistan and India recreated the ‘Pawri Horai Hai’ meme.
The original video has crossed six million views on Instagram and Dananeer’s followers have also reached one million on Instagram.
