Actor Arshad Warsi has found a hilarious way to learn Punjabi - a language he loves. The Mumbai-born and based actor took to Twitter on Thursday to share a 'hack' of sorts that will leave you in splits if you have even a cursory knowledge of Punjabi or Hindi.
Arshad Warsi shared a picture titled "English to Punjabi made simple". The guide lists 10 English words with a number next to each of them. Each number, when pronounced the way it is in Punjabi, also translates into the English word it is written next to.
Nine, for example, is pronounced "nuu" in Punjabi, which also means "daughter-in-law".
Similarly, 10 is "duss" - which translates to "tell me", and 80 is "assi" - which means "we".
"Finally I can learn the language I love," wrote Mr Warsi, 52, while sharing the guide that has left his followers amused. Take a look at it below:
