This Thackeray has about 200 followers. And he’s burning up the Net! Meet Bal Keshav Thackeray, the man who’s mocking the real Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray on Twitter. His account name is ‘fakebalthakre’, location: ‘Matoshree, Mumbai’, and his bio reads: ‘Hinduhridaysamrat, Shivsenapramukh, editor Saamna, Cartoonist... fan of Hitler.’
Some of his recent posts include “Sena tiger afraid of only one thing — movies starring the Tusshar Kapoor”, “This is the real world, fellows. You are f***ed. Jai Maharashtra!” He also follows the two people the real Thakeray wouldn’t approve of: actor Shah Rukh Khan and filmmaker Karan Johar.
That’s not all. Joining fakebalthakre on Twitter is Fakerajthackre! And the latest salvo from the latter to the former? “This old man is going senile.” Beat that!
