The first half of 2020 has been excruciatingly painful but there were some light moments as well. When not grieving for the loss of some magnificent talents, social media enthusiasts were busy tripping over the memes. You remember that time when trailers, songs and teaser of Bollywood films sent Twitter into a frenzy with memes? Well, meme makers are always on a lookout for content and they never fail to bring a smile to our faces, especially when it comes to driving away Monday blues. So, let’s revisit some AMAZING meme topics that made the headlines in the first half of 2020. P.S. Keep the tissues ready in case if you have a laugh attack and tears start spilling.
Ananya Panday – Maine bhi struggle kiya hai
Ananya Panday is a favourite of meme makers. At a round-table conference, the actress had said that she had struggled a lot as well and her father, too, never got a chance to be on Koffee with Karan. Siddhant Chaturvedi’s impromptu reply that was spun into a dig at her was also one of the major reasons that Ananya’s take on struggle was turned into memes. Here are a few of them:

Love Aaj Kal trailer memes
As soon as any trailer, song, teaser, or promo drops on the net, you’ve got to find a relatable line/lines and make a meme out of it. As soon as the trailer of Sara Ali Khan and Kartik Aaryan starrer Love Aaj Kal was released, it sent people into a tripping frenzy with one-liners like “Tum mujhe tang karne lage ho”, “Aana hai to puri tarah aana, warns mat aana” and more that were turned into memes by social-media enthusiasts.

Just an expression can be turned into a meme. Then, how could the most controversial reality TV show, Bigg Boss 13, be left behind? Rashami Desai, Asim Riaz and Shefali Jariwala were turned into memes that will leave you ROFL.
Neha Dhupia – It’s her choice
Neha Dhupia was brutally trolled when she supported a girl who had five boyfriends and was cheating on a guy who slapped her. She said that it’s her choice and that created a meme fest on social media for a couple of days.

Honestly, this was bound to happen one day. What else do you expect when you ruin an AR Rahman classic song for just another failed chartbuster.
