Twitter Can’t Digest Nirav Modi’s Costly Ostrich Leather Jacket

PNB scam accused businessman Nirav Modi, who is wanted by Indian agencies, was spotted in London according to a media report. An extradition request against the jeweller is pending since last September before the UK authorities.

In this video tweeted out by UK’s The Telegraph, the reporter can be heard asking questions to which Nirav Modi consistently replies, “no comment.”

What has however caught everyone’s attention is the ostrich leather jacket, which costs at least 10,000 pounds as per the report, that Nirav Modi was sporting in the video.

Twitter users cannot get over the fact that ‘the man who ran away with billions is just walking around the streets of London’ in a highly expensive ostrich leatherjacket.

‘Never Heard of Ostrich Leather’

Many Twitter users confessed they had never even heard of ostrich leather before they heard of Modi sporting it.

People expressed their shock over a fugitive, who is accused in a Rs 14,000-crore fraud case, comfortably strolling around London wearing a highly expensive ostrich leather jacket.

‘Why Does It Look Like Sh*t?’

Some users have taken this opportunity to fashion-police Modi’s apparel choices.

Some users have also expressed ‘sympathy’ at the difficulty Nirav Modi, wearing a 10,000 pound jacket, had in hailing a cab. “These cabbies are like Mumbai autos,” writes a user.

‘I am Nirav Modi’

Another Twitter user has called Modi an “ageing 1970s Bollywood extra who has hung around studios long enough to pick up two words from superstars cornered by Filmfare gossipists: "No comment".”
