So here are a few times when Bollywood and (mostly) its fandom decided to take the humourous, scratch that, hilarious route and rage all over Twitter. Supporting evidence below…
- Celebrity Target #1: Priyanka Chopra
- Celebrity Target #2: Sonam Kapoor
- Celebrity Target #3: Rishi Kapoor
- Celebrity Target #4: Anushka Sharma
- Celebrity Target #5: Shekhar Suman
- Celebrity Target #6: Adnan Sami
Celebrity Target #1: Priyanka Chopra
In her most recent appearance at the Met Gala 2017, PC donned what seemed to be one of the longest trench trails ever seen (only to ditch it later for an after party) and Twitter totally lost it with its tweets and manips. From the trail being called Quan’Tent’ico to some serious puns on the #SwachhBharat campaign, it was the malai on chai comparison that killed it for us!
Celebrity Target #2: Sonam Kapoor
Sonam’s ridiculously good fashion moments wouldn’t be the same if they didn’t make for some ridiculously good memes later. Her Ralph & Russo outfit at Cannes did just that and more, when fans all over Twitter got creative with their tweets and trolls and gave us some of the best desi memes to ROFL over. ‘Raita fail gaya’ and ‘wearing a rumali roti at Cannes’ aren’t things you hear daily.
Celebrity Target #3: Rishi Kapoor
This troll was a classic case of “The Joke’s On You!” by Rishi Kapoor. When a random follower compared a picture of Rishi Kapoor in the 70s to one of Alia Bhatt’s current pictures, a delightful comic feud began. While Alia only laughed it off, Rishi took it to the next level and uploaded a split screen as proof that the two of them were indeed doppelgängers. Case in point, RK!
Celebrity Target #4: Anushka Sharma
Much has been spoken about Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s on again, off again dating episodes. So it was when Virat Kohli came out as the man of the match after an intense #IndvsPak feud (the one where Virat bowed down to Sachin Tendulkar sitting in the bleachers) that Twitterati took it upon themselves to personally thank Anushka Sharma (not!) for giving Virat Kohli back…
Celebrity Target #5: Shekhar Suman
This one hit tad below the belt with Shekhar’s ill choice of words and expression. Of course, he later claimed that it wasn’t meant to be a dig at anyone, which most people assumed to be for the Fashion actress Kangana Ranaut, but it was too late by then as the tweets continued to stream in. Well, certainly can’t say the reactions were uncalled for, Shekhar.
Celebrity Target #6: Adnan Sami
Now this one’s just beyond our jurisdiction. We know the man meant well when he showed support for India (his newly acquired citizenship) by uninstalling Snapchat, but of course he got (unrequired) heat from the other side for it. But can’t say much there, for there are all kinds of people in the world and you just can’t win ‘em all!
