Social media laughs at Aamir’s tears
When actor Aamir Khan broke down while watching two recent films, Salman Khan-starrer Bajrangi Bhaijaan and Imran Khan and Kangana Ranaut’s Katti Batti, little did he know that his tears would become fodder for online jokes.
As news of the 50-year-old’s emotional outbursts at the premiere of his nephew Imran’s film made way to the social media, several people made fun of him. “Air Hostess: Sir, would you like to have anything? Tea? Coffee? Juice?; Aamir Khan: Tissues (sic),” wrote one user. Another user decided to make fun of Aamir’s 2000 film, Mela. “Aamir Khan cries every time he watchs a better movie than Mela (sic),” the user wrote. Another user posted a famous quote to make fun of him. “Aamir Khan hates walking in the rain because nobody can see him crying,” the user wrote. A photo posted by one user shows Aamir in a swimming pool, and has been captioned as, “Aamir about to drown in his own tears”.
As the trolling intensified and #aamirkhan started trending on Monday, several popular comedians, too, joined in to have more fun. “What if Aamir Khan is just allergic to watching movies?” tweeted Rohan Joshi. His AIB colleague Tanmay Bhatt wrote, “I’m so proud of him that he’s now managing to watch stuff before commenting. Big step forward.”
