An analyst fell off his chair during a live debate on a Pakistani news channel recently. A video clip of the slip has gone viral on social media.
The incident occurred on September 16 on GTV, during a debate on the Kashmir issue.
The video shows Mazhar Barlas fall off his chair abruptly in the middle of a panel discussion, leaving everyone shocked. It was the news anchor's reaction, though, that triggered a flurry of reactions - he was seen biting his tongue to express his shock.
Watch the video below:
The incident left Twitter in splits.

However, a few also criticised the anchor for his reaction. "The moment when a senior analyst fell off to the ground after his chair collapsed during a show on GTV... reaction of the host is very pathetic and can't be appreciated anyway," one Twitter user wrote.
