Falak Shabir sings ‘Mauka Mauka’, Instagram video goes viral

Lahore (NUT-DESK)

Singer Falak Shabir made fun of the Indian cricket team by singing the “Mauka Mauka” (opportunity) after Pakistan handed a record-setting defeat to them in the T20 World Cup.

He shared a video of him performing the song in front of an audience on his picture and video-sharing social media application Instagram profile. He said that the Indian side did not give mauka but Pakistan took it by itself instead.

After singing the song, he chants Pakistan Zindabad (Long Live Pakistan).

The video went viral and has at least 1.3 million views and 0.25 million likes.

Star Sports had launched the “Mauka Mauka” campaign before Pakistan played India in the ICC Cricket World Cup in 2015 in Australia. It made fun of the Green Shirts due to the fact that it had never beaten the Men in Blue in a World Cup game.

Its video sees a Pakistan fan witnessing Pakistan’s defeat in World Cup competitions from 1992 to 2011 while hoping to light fireworks when his team would break the jinx.

The video was later being used to humiliate all the teams that India would be facing in that edition.

However, the campaign took a hit when Pakistan handed a humiliating 10-wicket defeat to India at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium last Sunday.

Babar Azam-led side, winning the toss and electing to bowl, restricted Virat Kohli’s men to 151-7 in their allotted 20 overs thanks to Shaheen Shah Afridi’s match-winning three-wicket haul.

Star Sports, on its Facebook page, shared a clip of the Mauka Mauka all smiles and finally lighting those fireworks.

“Well Played Pakistan,” the caption read.
