Local slangs are not just mere words but emotions and can help you be a part of a new community. Vir Saini's "How to speak in Mumbai" series takes us through the most popular local slangs of Mumbai in a humorous way.  

For an outsider in Mumbai, the first thing to learn is the local slang and you can't avoid it. Slangs of Mumbai are like the city itself – a whirlwind of emotions served with a generous sprinkle of wit, used not only to communicate but connect as they pulsate the raw energy and fervor unique to the city. 

When you say "Bhavnao ko samjho" in a conversation, you're not just communicating; you're inviting others to understand. Calling your friends "bro" is fine but it doesn't have the same catch as "Bhidu". Some slangs are more than words, they can be a way for you to immerse yourself in a completely new culture. From "bindaas" to "jhakaas," these words are like secret handshakes, making you feel the vibrant spirit of Mumbai. For an outsider, it could be tough to understand and hence Vir Saini shares a short Reel series called "How to speak Mumbai". Through these short episodes, he teaches us some famous slangs and where to use them layered with a humorous touch. It's interesting to see and might make you want to learn some slang too. So, the next time you hear someone say "Ae bhai, tension mat le," remember, it's not just a phrase; it's a sign that's asking you to connect with a new linguistic culture.
