Memes are what run the internet these days and when they’re timely and based on celebrities, they tend to go viral in minutes. This is exactly what happened when the Sui Dhaaga- Made In India trailer had come out a few weeks ago. A certain expression and posture of Anushka Sharma from the movie had turned into memes and was being shared all over the internet.
But Anushka knows how to take a joke in the right spirit and in an interview with Mid-Day revealed that she didn’t mind them at all, in fact, she used to share them with her friends too.
I thought the memes were hilarious. I kept sharing them with Varun, Sharat [Katariya, director] and my friends.
Even Varun Dhawan had joined in on the fun and shared a meme on Twitter and tagged Anushka to call her #MemesKiRani Mamta.

LOL! This one is one of the best ones doing the rounds for sure!
Anushka also said that apart from being funny these memes just showed how much the character had struck a chord with the audience.
It is a compliment that my character has been stuck in people’s head after they watched the trailer. Mamta has become a figure that everyone identifies with. Memes have become a common feature today. People actually dedicate time to make them. But in our case, it happened naturally and that too, on a huge scale.
The actress also opened up about how it was difficult for her to get into the shoes of Mamta as she couldn’t really relate to her personality. But what made her choose the role was the film’s theme of self-reliance than anything else.
It takes a lot of work to play a character that you have not lived. I had to be restrained. Also, Sharat tries to keep the narrative as raw and real as possible. You can’t follow his vision unless you are completely immersed in the character.
It’s super cool that Anushka was totally running with the meme game, I wonder what her favourite one was!
