Recently a Swedish Youtuber namely PewDiePie went on to dig Indian Television and Cinemas and made a video namely ‘You India You Lose’. He showed some scenes from the Indian television and films and also had a good laugh over it. Though he had a good time mocking at it what took us by is something else. In the video at exactly 6:12 he shows a scene from Rajnikanth’s film, a Tamil SCI-fi adventure namely Enthiran (Robot). Does that mean he cannot differentiate between a bollywood film and a Tamil film. And most importantly He doesn’t know who Rajnikanth is? He is seen saying How is this a movie and did they make it in a Gmod.
