The BJP on Thursday registered a resounding victory after it won nearly 350 out of 542 Lok Sabha seats with the help of its alliance. As the counting progressed, the BJP’s lead kept getting wider. As expected, the excitement among India’s TV anchors was palpable, more so in the case of Republic TV founder Arnab Goswami, who forgot the name of BJP’s candidate in Gurdaspur, Sunny Deol. Instead, he referred to him as pornstar Sunny Leone.

Goswami was in conversation with his panelist, Pradeep Bhandari, when he shouted in excitement, “Sunny Leone..Sunny Deol leading with …” Soon the clip went viral leaving Twitterati in splits.

If this was not enough, the pornstar, who’s now become a recognisable face of Bollywood, tweeted, “Leading by How many votes ???? ;)”

Also joining the conversation was a famous condom brand Menforce, which replied to Sunny, ” Hope you’re not tired with all the running that you do in our minds.” It also posted a screenshot, which read, “Dear Arnab, we understand. She’s always in our minds as well. #THENATIONKNOWS.”

Sunny Deol went on to win from Gurdaspur in his debut electoral battle.
