In the morning, Gandhi was trolled on Twitter for allegedly saying Steve Jobs was from Microsoft. Many on the internet called him Chatur of 3 Idiots. Some even compared him to Alia Bhatt while sharing the short video of his speech.

Twitter mocked Gandhi for saying ".One day you're going to run this country, run the institutions, you will be the Steve Jobs of Microsofts.. the Facebooks of this country."

The video of his speech is going viral on the internet and is a pure delight for netizens. Watch the short clip:
