It seems like prime minister Anwar Ibrahim’s fame has spread beyond Malaysia after he was featured in India’s reality show ‘Who Wants To Be A Millionaire’.
‘Which country elected Anwar Ibrahim?’
A snippet of the game show was recently posted by @kingmshahrul1 on TikTok, where it showed the contestant answering a series of questions from Indian actor and TV host Amitabh Bachchan.
One of the questions which got every Malaysian’s ears perked up was this: “Which country elected Anwar Ibrahim as its Prime Minister on 2022?”
With 640,000 rupees (RM34,194.42) on the line, senior project manager Nipun Rajan remained calm and chose ‘Malaysia’ from the question board.
Needless to say, he successfully passed to the next round and won the money.
