When Ashoka made Khilji apologise to Padmavati: Hilarious Bollywood memes flood Twitter BY SAEED NASIR

Amid the ongoing Padmavati row, Tweets users share memes and retell background the Bollywood way.

Twitter users come up with memes that retell record the Bollywood way.
What would happen if Akbar and Ashoka were to meet Alauddin Khilji? Following the countrywide protest against the release of Deepika Padukone, Shahid Kapoor and Ranveer Singh’s Padmavati, Twitter users have found the ultimate way to express their annoyance – memes. Twitter is flooded with memes that retell background with Bollywood as its guiding light. All they needed was stars who enjoyed these characters in films and some creativity. So, from Akbar (Hrithik Roshan played the role in Jodhaa Akbar) and Alauddin Khilji (Ranveer in Padmavati) conference to Khilji apologising, there are many gems floating online.

One of the best memes is of Ashoka (Shah Rukh Khan played the king in Asoka) and Maharawal Ratan Singh (Shahid Kapoor’s character in Padmavati) forcing Khilji to apologise for harming Karni Sena’s sentiments. There are certainly others starring Bal Thackeray (Amitabh Bachchan’s role in Sarkar was reported to be influenced by the politics leader) and Rani Padmini (Deepika Padukone) herself.

Right wing teams have been protesting the film’s release alleging it will depict an enchanting romance between Padmavati and Alauddin Khilji. Creators have dismissed the boasts but to no avail. The film’s release needed to be deferred even while two states, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh, have already banned the film.

Though Khilji existed, experts say there is certainly little historical data for Padmavati. The film is dependant on a poem by the 16th century Sufi writer, Malik Muhammad Jayasi.
