New Delhi: A video of a Disney themed proposal is doing the rounds on the Internet in which a Hollywood filmmaker is re-animating his girlfriend's favourite movie to propose to her.
As the video went viral it seems that the proposal has found a new fan in Anand Mahindra. The Mahindra Group chairman has liked the thoughtful wedding proposal so much that he says it has given him an inferiority complex.
He shared the video on Twitter and wrote "This clip has been going viral globally. This gent apparently hack-animated a disney movie to propose to his childhood sweetheart... And I thought I had done a good job 40 yrs ago with my proposal. Now I have an inferiority complex!"
Anand Mahindra is married to Anuradha Mahindra, founder of Verve magazine.
Mr Mahindra's tweet was 'liked' over 22,000 times. His tweet went viral, leading to some hilarious jokes, with many asking how he proposed to his wife 40 years ago.
A user said, "40 years back love story ! Twitter friends will read your love story, we had sufficient time, post your love story sir...... Proposal to your wife or hidden loved?...Conditions apply: Tag to your wife...."
"Could you please tweet out ur proposal (i m sure video wouldn't be available then) at least that could serve as a second best option for millennials to propose since hacking movie wouldn't be everybody's cup of tea?" asked one user.
"It just gave me an inferiority complex for the life..." wrote another.
A post read, "Sir...We may not have made this kind of elaborate proposal to our spouses...but our marriages are SOLID...lasted 40 years in your case...and 35 in mine."
Anand Mahindra, who has 7.4 million followers on Twitter is very active on the social media site. He keeps tweeting about the news making the headlines. Last week he praised Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella because of his company's pledge to combat climate change. Microsoft has said it would become 'carbon negative' by 2030.
