Film industry has been serving as the best provider of fodder for internet meme makers. First it was Anushka Sharma who became a national phenomenon on the social media after her Sui Dhaaga look was converted into viral memes and now it’s the turn for Jalebi poster. The poster of Mahesh Bhatt’s romantic drama was dropped a couple of days ago and it has already found itself as the subject of internet memes. Starring Rhea Chakraborty and Varun Mitra, Jalebi poster has the actress hanging out of the emergency window of a train’s sleep coach to kiss her love interest Varun.
Here are some hilarious memes carved out of Jalebi poster that are doing rounds on the internet.
Many accused Bollywood of copying the iconic image from the Korean war which shows a soldier kissing his sweetheart hanging out of a train window. We can say, the resemblance is uncanny and unmissable.
