At times, some even approach the firangis for a selfie and handshake. Too relatable, right? However, not being racist, it could have happened to you as well if you travelled across India or too fair-skinned.

On similar lines, Jimmy Donaldson aka YouTuber MrBeast shared an incident from his recent India visit. He met a person who wanted to click a picture with him.

Soon after this tweet surfaced on the microblogging website, an Indian Twitterati asked him for his height. The American man replied, "6’4."
