Riz Ahmed Starts Hilarious Mogambo Challenge
The British-Pakistani rapper turned actor, Riz Ahmed is all set for his Marvel venture Venom. And while promoting the upcoming film, Riz Ahmed challenged his costar Tom Hardy for his latest Mogambo challenge. But with Tom Hardy doing the iconic Bollywood Mogambo dialogue, one thing is pretty definite. If there is ever a Hollywood remake of the popular Bollywood movie Mr. India, Tom Hardy would be the perfect villain.

Previously, Riz Ahmed was invited to the famous Jimmy Kimmel Live. And there, he addressed a lot many things from his upcoming album to his work experience with Tom Hardy. Not just that, but Ahmed was also open about his roots and rap career. Riz Ahmed has always been fairly vocal about his traditional roots. In fact, his BBC miniseries Englistan also attempts to discover the same topic. This time, Riz Ahmed is using his Asian roots to release a solo rap song named Mogambo. He claimed that his rap song is inspired by Bollywood’s super villain from 1987’s Mr India.
Apart from his rap song, Ahmed also challenged Jimmy Kimmel to imitate the famous catchphrase. To everybody’s huge surprise, Jimmy Kimmel was not unfamiliar with the iconic dialogue. While narrating the real phrase ‘Mogambo Khush Hua’, Kimmel really nailed it. And also, Riz challenged Tom Hardy to take up the Mogambo challenge as well. Fans were most than just delighted to see Hardy do a perfect impression.
Riz Ahmed’s solo rap album drops on October 3rd. But he has been promoting it all over social media. Riz Ahmed shared the videos of Kimmel and Hardy rising to his challenge. And asked his fans to do their own Mogambo impressions, and then upload them online.
It seems that Riz Ahmed and his new Mogambo challenge are the latest things taking over the internet.
