Netflix asks 'name this superhero' with B-Town villain pic; netizens name Batman, Deadpool

Indian cinema has witnessed some iconic villains in its history. From Gabbar in Sholay, Mogambo from Mr India in the ‘70s and ‘80s to Langda Tyagi in Omkara or Singham's Jayant Shikre in recent years, the characters have a fan following of its own. While these characters were outright wicked, another villain with similar intentions, but on a comical note, also enjoys a cult status.

We’re talking about Crime Master Gogo from Andaz Apna Apna. Shakti Kapoor’s portrayal of the character is popular even today and it’s hardly a surprise to spot a meme or one of his iconic lines on a meme anytime. But ‘superhero’ is a term that has not been associated with the comic figure much.

However, Netflix recently posted a snap of  Crime Master Gogo, and asked fans to guess the 'superhero.' Shakti Kapoor is dressed like a superhero with a cape and gloves, a look that he carries throughout the film, in the photo. The character is so popular that not many had a problem is giving the right answer.

However, many netizens did not answer it as Crime Master Gogo, but termed it as popular international superheroes Deadpool, Batman and Superman. One had a very valid connection, how both had similar attires, sarcasm, and were 'highly skilled, wisecracking individuals.' Some even named Doctor Strange and Black Widow. 

Here are the responses 

Be it posting his iconic dialogues or sharing his daughter’s Shraddha Kapoor’s take, there were some other funny responses. 

There could be a reason why Netflix posted the meme. The classic starring Aamir Khan, Salman Khan, Karisma Kapoor, Raveena Tandon and Paresh Rawal is available on the streaming platform. Even after over 25 years, the Rajkumar Santoshi directorial can be a fun watch over the weekend.
