The latest video of a man mispronouncing the name of the Remdesivir medication as ‘Remo D’Souza’ that Remo recently shared has the internet in splits. It showed a man, talking to a news reporter about the prices of medicines. “Cipla company ka injection Remo D’Souza,” the man had said, with the sentence being repeated on loop for comic effect.

On his post, Remo’s friend Terence Lewis commented on how Dance India Dance participants would innocently pronounce their names uniquely. Bharti Singh, Gaurav Gera, Salman Yusuf Khan, Jay Bhanushali also reacted on this video. Reacting to this viral video, Remo told Times Of India, “At first, I couldn’t believe what I heard. Then, I showed it to my wife Lizelle and she could not help laughing.” He added, “Let me tell you that I am not good at pronunciations. The name Remdesivir has been confusing me since many days; I just was not able to pronounce it. This man has given me a new name that I can call it by. In fact, I find it easier to call the antiviral medication instead by my name.”
