It’s an era of social media where anything can get viral in no time.
Now, recently a spoof post broke the internet which stated that Prince Harry of the British Royal family mentioned popular Punjabi singer Daler Mehndi as ‘Spare’ in his latest biography.
The post claimed that Prince Harry turned to the Indian musician in his darkest hours. Published by @qualiteaposts, the post said as follows: “Prince Harry reveals music artist he listened to in his lowest moments in new book ‘Spare’. “In the times I felt alone and separated from my family, I always took time to myself to sit back and listen to Daler Mehndi. His lyrics resonated with me and got me through a lot.” Also Read : CM Bhagwant Mann Plans Film City In Punjab, Says, “I’m Here To Connect The Punjabi Cinema Industry & Bollywood
Well, this wasn’t all as what was even more amusing was the fact that Daler Mehndi actually fell for the spoof and innocently uploaded a screenshot of it on Twitter with the caption, “I am grateful to the blessings of Guru Nanak, my parents, and my dad, I created a unique Pop Folk Ethnic Music Style. Love you, Prince Harry! God Bless you, in gratitude that my music helped you. @TeamSussex”. Also Read : Street Talk: Is Love Really Blind?
