Last evening, comedian Kunal Kamra and filmmaker Anurag Kashyap came up with an innovatove idea for crediting Arnab Goswami for all the great work he is doing in the field of journalism.
Birthday boy @anuragkashyap72 & me went to the @republic’s office to give Arnab an excellence in journalism award... Republic security said bina permission ke allowed nahi hai...— Kunal Kamra (@kunalkamra88) September 10, 2020
They went to Republic TV's office with actual framed chappals, with Arnab's name written below. This was supposed to be an award for 'excellence in journalism'.
Now, of course they were denied entry inside the studio but it did get #chapalforarnab trending on Twitter. Here are some of the reactions:
For excellence in journalism. This is for you Arnab. #chapalforarnab— Berojgar Priyanshu Kumar (@Priyans17689248) September 11, 2020
He deserves chapal from every aspiring journalist who wants to unravel the truth but after watching such journalists who just try to overshadow the main topic with baseless debates. @RealArnab7 go learn something from @RAVISHkumar001 . And 2 chapal meri trf se #chapalforarnab— Deepanshi Arora (@Dips_the_pooh) September 11, 2020
I have no chappal even for such substandard to gift Arnab #chapalforarnab— Zeeshan (@Zeesuking) September 11, 2020
