Fake Friendly Fridays is a section where we pick a famous personality and throw fake questions at him/her and in return, we receive fake answers. Why should you not take it seriously? Because it is fake.

If you still didn’t get it: This is a fake interview written purely on the basis of the author’s imagination of how the actual interview would have been if we got the chance to interview these famous (some, for all the wrong reasons) personalities in real life. In short, just have a good laugh!

Words can’t define this man’s ability to play with words. How methodically ironic could this situation possibly be? And who is this man, you ask? None other than our very own, Shashi Tharoor!

In this exclusive edition of Fake Friendly Fridays, we’re ecstatic to share some really interesting details about the man himself, Mr. Tharoor as he unravels the mysteries of the cosmic nirvana that is his life in a FAKE INTERVIEW with us.

So without further ado, read on:

ED: “We welcome you, sir, to this week’s exclusive Fake Friendly Fridays. How do you do?”

Shashi Tharoor: “I’m cock-a-hoop about this opportunity, young fellow. I feel rather stupendous today and I can’t wait to get started!”

ED: “Wait… Cock-a-what? Uh, never mind. So tell us a little about your childhood, Mr. Tharoor?”

Shashi Tharoor: “Well, my childhood was rather gleefully spent, as I dove into the depths of the most priceless collection of therapeutic exhibits of syllables known to mankind, the tactfully leather-jacketed edition of English comprehensions by Wren And Martin. The amalgamation of vocabulary and its articulation is the reason why I still manage to replicate my youthful exuberance.”

ED: “Yaar seedha bol do ke padhtey bohot they.”

Shashi Tharoor: “It’s okay. Life ek exasperating faargo hi toh hai, bro. Just chill.”

ED: *Rips apart Thesaurus* “So Mr. Tharoor, what brought you to politics?”

Shashi Tharoor: “Well, the quintessential lifestyle of an average Joe was rather nonsensical to me and I craved the idea of a profound approach to unravel the truth behind the dogmatic narratives which have entrenched themselves within the society. So I thought to my self that there was no better way to do that, other than politics.”

Shashi Tharoor

ED: “Hey, Ram!”

Shashi Tharoor: “No, no. Not Ram. My name’s Shashi.”

*Interviewer has tears in his eyes*

ED: “Okay, Mr. Tharoor. Why don’t we talk about your life philosophy and how you manage to stay so vibrant?”

Shashi Tharoor: “Well, I abide by a rather simple philosophy which goes like this:

Ben Affleck ne direct kari Argo hai

Life ek exasperating farrago hai!

^These lines just keep me going as I intricately draw my pathways to successfully tackle the conundrums of life and manage to avoid the humdrum cacophonies and muffled screams of my haters thanks to my success because YOLO, my boy!”

ED: “So what’s the point of the Argo reference?”

Shashi Tharoor: “Oh, that’s just a rhyming scheme. Lulz.”

*Interviewer’s tears intensify*

ED: “Moving on, how would you describe your relationship with Mr. Arnab Goswami, who has been rather charged up for running a potentially dangerous channel?”

Shashi Tharoor: “That man is a vile exemplification of the corroding journalistic standards which have become a norm in the status quo and needs to be ejected from the institutions which he has shackled under his guard to let journalism be free and unbiased.”

ED: “So what advice would you give to today’s rather polarizing millennial generation?”

Shashi Tharoor: “Simple advice:

Pyaar mohabbat dhokha hai,

Padh lo beta mauka hai!”

*Interviewer goes into a state of limbo*

Annnnd that’s a wrap, ladies and gentlemen! That was a rather exhilarating session with one of the most talented men and esteemed politicians in the country, EXCEPT THAT IT WAS A FAKE INTERVIEW!
