In today’s meme-dominating online world, you can judge the volume of impact of any event going by the number of memes, jokes and spoofs it manages to generate and inspire across social media sites. The more the number of memes on a particular event, the more widespread the impact.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s unexpected announcement demonetising old Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency notes is one such thing. Once Netizens had got over the initial stupefying shock, social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram and Facebook were flooded with sarcastic quips, jokes and memes. The past week has been equal measures levity and serious contemplation over whether this move will in fact prove beneficial in the long run.
Adding to the numbers of the former category is a latest spoof on the already controversial film Ae Dil Hai Mushkil.
In this hilarious video titled Ae Bill Hai Mushkil, the creator has drawn an uncanny parallel between the movie plot and the love-hate affair India is currently experiencing with the Rs 1,000 and Rs 2,000 bills. In this video, Ranbir Kapoor plays the common man, while Anushka Sharma plays the Rs 1,000 bill, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan the Rs 2,000 note.
