“Party karne waalon ki hai yahi kahani” A comment on the political ineptitude across parties.
“Bajaate raho, sabki bajaate raho” Where YoYo encourages whistle blowers.
“Baby, baby, baby, baby ka hai birthday bash.” How to make even Justin Bieber’s lyrics sound intelligent.
“Hygiene wala natak shatak mujhse na hota’’ A protect against Swatch Bharat Tax.
