ISL 2017/18: Mehtab Hossain does a hilarious rendition of viral actress Priya Prakash Varrier; watch video
What's the story?
India's latest heartthrob Priya Prakash Varrier has become a bona fide superstar thanks to a flick of her eyebrows, and it appears that the teenaged actor has a few of our favourite footballers smitten too.
Jamshedpur FC star Mehtab Hossain is the player in question, who hilariously attempted to recreate the classic moment in a bus journey with his fellow teammates. The video was captured by one of the team's players and Mehtab clearly enjoyed himself while re-enacting the viral video. Jamshedpur FC shared the candid moment on Twitter and fans can't seem to get enough of it.
In case you didn't know...
Priya Prakash Varrier has become a raging sensation on social media and has the whole nation talking about her. Jamshedpur FC too in just their first season in the Indian Super League (ISL) have endeared themselves to fans of the game.
The heart of the matter
The video shared by the club's official Twitter account is full of pretty much all the ingredients from Varrier's original viral video. It has the music, the eyebrow flick and even the imaginary gunshot kiss. It is safe to say that this was pretty well thought out by the Jamshedpur FC squad.
With the team currently in high spirits and their performances top notch, the management wouldn't mind a little bit of healthy banter between the boys.
Jamshedpur FC will now look to consolidate their position in the ISL top four as they play a tricky tie against Chennaiyin FC on Sunday. A win would take them one step closer to a semifinal finish.
This was indeed one of the funniest things we've seen in the entire ISL season so far and it shows that players are human too and find humour in what most of today's youth clearly finds funny too.
