Johny Lever is considered among the best comedians of Hindi cinema, and matching up to him in the same frame might not have been an easy task for many. However, his daughter Jamie Lever showed she can do that, as she lived up to his comic timing. The duo made a hilarious TikTok video of a popular scene of Lever Sr’s Awara Paagal Deewana, that went viral and left netizens in splits.
In the original scene, Lever, whose character name is Chota Chatri, meets Paresh Rawal and Aftab Shivdasani’s characters, and Rawal calls ‘Chota Chatri’ as ‘Tadpatri’ leading to a funny moment. The other two actors of the scene were also extremely impressed by the recreation.
Paresh Rawal laughed at the video, calling ‘Johny bhai’ his ‘favourite’ and one of the finest human beings. Even Lever Jr got praise from the veteran, being called ‘hugely talented bundle of joy’.
