Despite all the controversies over its content involving toxic masculinity, Kabir Singh sprung a surprise at the box office, turning out to be a blockbuster. While its record of being the highest-grossing film of this year was only recently broken by Hrithik Roshan-Tiger Shroff-starrer War, it seems the impact that the movie created is still fresh in the minds of viewers. A Twitter user recently created an interesting meme to showcase the possessive nature of the character of Kabir Singh for his girlfriend Preeti and even the actor, who played Preeti, Kiara Advani felt it was one of the ‘best memes.’
There are some things in the world that might not be too expensive, but people often misplace or those that even get stolen. While umbrellas used to be well-known for that, of late, it the mobile charger. A netizen had an interesting way to highlight the importance of a mobile charger, and its susceptibility to get lost or stolen, by sharing a snap of the charger and writing ‘Preeti’ on it. The person then quipped, “Ab koi mera charger touch nahi karega.” (Now, no one will touch my charger)
For the uninitiated, in the movie Kabir Singh, the lead character played by Shahid Kapoor is extremely possessive of his love interest Preeti. In one of the scenes, he is seen hurling abuses and going furiously all the way on his bike to bash the person, when he hears that someone had ‘touched’ her. Kiara put the meme on her on Instagram stories and wrote, "Hahahah one of the best ones."
