Comedian Gursimran Khamba got his photograph used for catfishing on a matrimonial website Image: Facebook
Comedian Gursimran Khamba aka Khamba recently faced the problem that has until now only been faced by mostly women. Yep, most of us have had our photographs on social media 'stolen' and used in the thief's fake profile. And, no, it's not flattering in the least. Khamba's image was used by unsuspecting parents of some dude who wanted to put up a matrimonial ad.
Yep, catfishing on a matrimonial website is the most Indian thing ever. Unfazed, the comedian took to his Instagram to serve a massive clapback. Check it out!
PSA: Kissi launde ke gharwaale meri photos lagaa ke matrimonial websites pe daal rahe hain. Agar koi Saini naam ka marketing professional who has done his BBA (chee) dikhe toh please report kar dijiye kyunki woh mein nahi hoon. Meine apne gharwaalon se check kar liya hai they are not secretly ashamed of my career. Uncle aunty agar aap padh rahi hain toh theek hai maybe aapke bete ka scene nahi ban raha but atleast meri height 5"9 toh mat boliye ek hi cheez hai mere paas which is 6 foot ka hona woh bhi cheen liya aapne oopar se BBA karvaa diya.
He threw major shade at the dude's marketing credentials (because, duh, why not?) and even took offence to his height being listed as 5'9 rather than 6 feet. His post opened a floodgate of catfishing stories in the comments section with a user sharing, "Once my chacha added some gori bandi on facebook and when time came to exchange pics he used to send rahul gandhi's pics...."
Oh well! Meanwhile, other very observant fans noted that Khamba has nothing to say about the earnings mentioned in the fake profile with "Why does he not say anything about the exaggerated annual package? Or is it really not exaggerated?" It seems that no one is free from catfishing. Lock your profiles, y'all.
