10 ‘Gonna Tell My Kids’ Memes That’ll Make You Question Yourself

What Do You Meme

lf you haven’t been living under a rock, chances are that you would have come across some memes on social media that begin with ‘Gonna tell my kid...’. Needless to say, they have become quite a rage online with netizens coming up with their own interpretations of what they would like to tell their kids in the future. Obviously, we had to jump onto the bandwagon and bring you some of these memes, but with a Bollywood twist!

Not enough praises can be showered on the genius that is, Baba Sehgal. From “Chicken Fried Race” to “Go To The Gym”, he has given some iconic rap songs whose lyrics we can’t erase from our memories (Even if we wanted to). It is only fair that we equate him to none other than a prominent poet from the Mughal era, Mirza Ghalib. Because, they are quite obviously in the same league, right?

The film, PM Narendra Modi was a propaganda boost. But only for Vivek Oberoi’s lukewarm acting skills. However, the film sure made up to be a source of some amazing memes online. So, we couldn’t resist either.

Avengers: Endgame gave us a lot of things but it sure didn’t give us a new, legendary villain. Why? Because Bollywood always had its own Thanos anyway. Don’t tell me you don’t think Sanjay Dutt’s Kancha Cheena had an uncanny resemblance to Josh Brolin’s Thanos. You’d be lying to yourself if you think otherwise.

For years on end, Internet has recognized the stark similarities between Tennis champion Roger Federer and Indian actor-director Arbaaz Khan, we just tried to take it up a notch. After all, who doesn’t love Federer’s dabangg style of playing tennis.

Who would have thought that Yash Raj Films could in fact, get F1 champion Lewis Hamilton to play a lead role opposite Rani Mukherji in the film Ta Ra Rum Pum?Definitely not us!

All those who are going gaga over Joaquin Phoenix’s portrayal of the Joker in Todd Phillip’s latest film, should realise that Raj Kapoor already played the part, and that too extremely well, 49 years ago in 1970. Believe it or not, Bollywood has always been a step ahead with its films! ;)

Okay, okay. We understand, this one is a bit mean. But the resemblance is so deceiving, we had no choice but to point at it! Sorry Kalki, but if it was for any consolation, even Darsheel is a brilliant actor much like you.

These men in black, dus bahane karke le gaye humare dil. (Took away our hearts by making 10 excuses). From an engaging story line to a blooming romance to a frightening villain (Jamaal, played by Pankaj Kapoor), this film had all the drama that one could imagine.

The ‘Koffee’ couch of ‘Koffee with Karan’ has defined an entire generation. So, it is only fair to admit to our children that this man right here started all of it. That being said, we can’t WAIT for the next season to come!

Koi Mil Gaya was a hit that gave us the unforgettable character of Jaadu, an alien that happens to be abandoned on Earth. Well, I think it is fair to say that Steven Spielberg should have at least considered him for the part of the alien in E.T. the Extra Terrestrial.

We'll get through this! Meanwhile, here's all you need to know about the Coronavirus outbreak to keep yourself safe, informed, and updated.
