Okay, the work of art thing was a joke (sort of).
Every now and then we are blessed to see one of our favorite internet personalities, Waseem Hassan Sheikh aka Mr. Axcuse Me, pop up in our newsfeed. However, I must admit it seemed like he was starting to become less entertaining with his videos becoming a little repetitive. His role as ‘Hero’ in the Brio fast food restaurant chain was below par and seemed to show an actor/director/artist in decline. In his defense, it was difficult to follow up to his rendition of Sholay.
But he’s back. Better than ever.
This time, he’s taking on Shahrukh Khan. Remember Mehndi Laga Ke Rakhna from Dil Wale Dulhania Le Jayenge? Of course, you do because EVERYONE has heard it (regardless of if you hate on Bollywood or not). Given the small budget and well, err some other missing factors, Waseem bhai did pick up his game.
Here’s the full video:
And here are some behind the scene shots in case you’re wondering how the magic happens.
Not Just An Actor, But Also a Director
Drama on the set.
Waseem bhai doesn’t look so happy.
All jokes aside, let’s give Waseem Hassan Sheikh some real credit.
It’s not easy being a social media personality in Pakistan.
I have great respect for Taher Shah and Waseem Hassan Sheikh. Sticking to your shit even when big TV channels call you and try to grill you

Also, Waseem Sheikh is well aware of how people view his content and understands that his out of the box antics make him a viral hit (for the most part) whenever he puts something out. So he’s simply owning the attention and using it to his advantage. If you get to meet him in person, you’d be surprised how NOT full of himself he is.
