Netizens took no time to troll Indian author Chetan Bhagat for being honoured at Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) as the chief guest at an event and couldn’t believe that he had been chosen to address them.

“Really honoured to be the Chief Guest at ISRO for the recent celebrations of the World Space Week. I can’t believe one of India’s finest organisations chose me to address them. Truly a big moment of my life – my own moon landing! #isro #chetanbhagat #worldspaceweek,” Chetan Bhagat wrote in a post on Monday.

“With losing all communication with Chandrayan-2 Lander Vikram, looks like ISRO has also lost its sense inviting this joker as a Chief Guest. Even he can’t believe it,” wrote another user.
