Even though it has been two decades since its release, Shankar’s 2001 film Nayak has continued to remain popular among masses. Starring Anil Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee, Paresh Rawal and Amrish Puri in important roles, the political drama became a major hit in the 2000s, and found longevity after that with multiple TV re-runs. Now, one particular moment from the film has hooked desi Tweeple, who have been giving it a hilarious meme twist.
As netizens can’t get over the 90s and early 2000s Hindi films, which keeps resurfacing through memes, proving that those are evergreen, four snapshot of Anil Kapoor has flooded the microblogging site. The template shows Kapoor nervously wiping his forehead with a handkerchief and drinking water.
The snippets are from the iconic scene from the film, where Puri, who played the role of the chief minister was interviewed by journalist, played by Kapoor in a news room. After the journalist was challenged to become a CM for one day, he was dumbfounded by the proposition.
In case you’ve forgotten the scene, watch it here to refresh your memory. (See the moment at 12:08)
Anil kapoor’s nervousness in the scene is being used in various situations — from when you get a surprise test to when your parents want to check your mobile phone.
