In an unprecedented incident, former Editor-in-Chief of Time Now, Arnab Goswami, who is infamous for being a loud motormouth during debates, kept silent for 40 seconds. Prior to the launch of his new media venture, Arnab met veteran Bollywood actor Anupam Kher and decided to play a mannequin challenge. And most unexpectedly, the man who is reputed for being the loudest in the room, kept silent for 40 seconds.
Describing the incident in a humourous tone, Anupam Kher tweeted, “‘Anything Is Possible’!!! We at @actorprepares managed to keep #ArnabGoswami still & quiet 4 sometime. #MannequinChallengeWithArnab. #JaiHo.”
