It’s been a month since the government demonetised Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes and the picture that’s emerging from the ground is quite grim. Since the common people cannot do much to undo the after-effects of demonetisation, most of them have indulged themselves in the debates online. People have flooded the internet with memes, hilarious statuses and videos and are trying to extract as much joy as they can from the situation. Since the internet has the ability to make or break anyone’s reputation, we have seen several people trying their luck on it but what’s interesting is that we have also seen common people becoming overnight heroes because of it. Sonam Gupta going viral on social media after demonetisation is just one of the example. From cafes offering free alcohol to everybody named Sonam Gupta to becoming one of the most trending people on Google in 2016, the name gave a huge reason for people to a good laugh about. After Sonam Gupta, it’s Shyam Rangeela who stole the limelight and it seems like he’s here to stay.

Shyam Rangeela became the overnight hero when he posted an 8-second video, mimicking PM Narendra Modi talking about Sonam Gupta. We don’t know what part of it people liked the most – Shyam Rangeela mimicking PM Modi or Shyam Rangeela mimicking PM Modi and talking about Sonam Gupta but we now know for a fact he went viral and got some 5,82,715 views on YouTube soon after he posted the video online. And now, it seems that he has decided to fix the limelight on himself permanently with another hilarious video of him mimicking not just PM Modi but also other politicians and Bollywood heroes. In the video provided, he is seen mimicking Rahul Gandhi, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Baba Ramdev and Paresh Rawal in a hypothetical situation where these personalities are standing in a queue and no, the mimicry is not as unreal as the situation he has put them in. Check it out.

Is this the best way to get instant fame? May be. But it sure is one of the cheapest.
