Bhagwant Mann’s old comic videos resurface as set to become next Punjab CM

Punjab Chief Minister-elect Bhagwant Mann’s former career as a comedian has given the Internet much fodder for memes. As his Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) won a massive victory in Punjab, many old videos resurfaced online.

In the clip, Bhagwant Mann stars as a student whose teacher asks him what he wants to be when he grows up. “If I get enough education, I can become an officer. If not, I can become an MLA or a minister,” he replies in Punjabi. The video then cuts to present-day photos of Mr Mann as a politician, with one picture showing him with party leader Arvind Kejriwal.

IPS officer Rupin Sharma was among those who shared the clip on Twitter, where it has seen a resurgence in popularity today. “Prophetic,” he captioned it while congratulating Mr Mann.

Another one shows him as a contestant on the Laughter Challenge – Joke Sabha, with now-political rival Navjot Singh Sidhu as the judge.

In this particular clip, Mr Mann’s joke about politics and government drew a laugh from Mr Sidhu.
