From playing ‘jal tarang’ to ‘twisting balloons’, The Great Khali amazes his fans on his birthday with a new video
Imagine the iconic wrestling champion of India, ‘wrestling’ with a spoon and some bowls of water! Indeed, an unusual sight. Something is clearly up with The Great Khali and his fans have been left wondering what has come over him. In his latest Insta reel, Khali is seen creating music with water (well, almost) with his version of the jaltarang. Watch here how the towering personality that once dominated the wrestling arena, yes, our very own Great Khali himself, delicately strikes the ceramic bowls of water with the beater sticks. Now that’s one sight you never thought you’ll see. And he isn’t giving us much to go by; all he says is “Pichle kuch dino se ek naya ehsaas, ekdum nayi feeling arahi hai. Socha nayi tune try kar lu.” This has caused quite a stir in the world of Khali fandom and followers, with everyone wondering “Khali ko kya hua hai? Aakhir Khali kya kha ke aaya hai?
Perhaps he’s trying out newer interests, a welcome break from wrestling maybe? Or is he exploring alternate career options – well, we just cannot stop wondering and nor can his 2.1Mn followers on Instagram. One shocked fan asked, “Khali paaji aap aur jaltarang – ye kya ho raha hai?” while another commented, “Sir Wrestlemania se seedhe soor aur sangeet?”. So far, his video has got 345K + views, 45K + likes and 750+ comments. After all, it must be something very unique that has inspired Khali to move from WWE to DoReMi.
While we are still reeling in amazement, there comes another ‘twist’ in the new Khali saga. In yet another Insta reel we see him try his hands at, hold your breath – balloon modelling! Yes, you heard that right, the poster boy of wrestling who once effortlessly smacked down his opponents in the ring, is seen struggling with a balloon as he tries to twist and curl it. Not sure what is more endearing – watching him fidget with the balloon or see him getting startled as it bursts in his hands. Watch it for yourself here.
Looks like his fans are going gaga-over this video as well, with people sending him birthday wishes and dropping comments like, “Love your balloon skills sir. Can’t wait for 31st BOOM”, “Hi sir, love your style. Can’t wait for 31st” and more. In less than an hour the 45K+ views, 8K+ likes and 200+ comments
