A video of journalist Anuj Singhal has gone viral on social media where he is seen comparing the nightlife of Mumbai and Gurgaon (Gurugram). He is seen making derogatory remarks about Mumbai's nightlife, leading to netizens trolling him for insulting the city and attempting to praise the other. While many slammed Singhal and expressed that they would block his profile, a few stood by his side and cheered for Gurgaon. However, his abusive way of comparing the two cities drew flak. WATCH VIDEO:

Recording a reel at midnight from Gurgaon, Singhal is seen praising the nightlife of the region at the cost of insulting that of Mumbai. In the clip, he mentions that the people of 'Bombay' must feel ashamed as Gurgaon has a much better nightlife. Stooping down to the next level, he insulted the financial capital with abusive slang and called the "Nightlife of Mumbai is Ja*d (Messed up or worthless)."

"Sharam karo Bombay walo. Gurgaon mein aajao. Sab kuch yahi pe hai. Asli nightlife Gurgaon mein hai," he said while expressing that he wished to shift there. He also termed the city "the nightlife capital" and captioned the post "I love Gurgaon" on Instagram.

Netizens react

The Mumbai vs Gurgaon nightlife reel triggered netizens who slammed Singhal and alleged him to be drunk. Firstly, people noted that talking ill about a city while praising another doesn't suit a reputed professional and then claimed him to be intoxicated while filming the reel and making such remarks.

X users shared the video to troll him and turned the content into "meme material." As he insulted Mumbai and its nightlife and also mentioned his desire to shift to Gurgaon, people reacted by saying: "Good riddance for Mumbai." Only a few people stood by his side and commented, "Love from Gurgaon, sir."

Meanwhile, many even corrected him and said, "Not Bombay, it's Mumbai. Inko kaafi chadd gayi hai (He is too drunk)."

Mumbai vs Gurgaon nightlife debate

While people from Delhi and Mumbai have always been fractious over which city offered a better nightlife, the national capital's neighbour Gurgram has been a formidable entrant into the debating scene over the years.

Several Delhiites hit Gugraon late into the night as the city offers ahaata system (Buy Your Own Booze) allows people to bring in their own liquor to these restaurants which offer a relaxing environment, delicious food, and entertaining music in the form of Ghazal or DJ nights.

Mumbai on the other hand has always had an upper hand in offering plethora of bars, pubs, restaurants open late into the night that give you the best services. Also, the buzzing nightlife is considered to be safe for all, negligible drunk brawls and has strongly held on to its reputation as a people’s city. However, the liquor rates are higher as compared to Delhi or Gurgaon but ordering food at these places is definitely cheaper.
