The trailer of Bachchhan Paandey, starring Akshay Kumar, is finally released. While fans liked watching Khiladi Kumar and other actors like Kriti Sanon, Arshad Warsi, Pankaj Tripathi, Jacqueline Fernandez, Sanjay Mishra, Abhimanyu Singh, and Prateik Babbar, other netizens pointed out how some of the sequences were clearly taken from viral memes on social media.
In the trailer, we see Akshay Kumar’s character, Bachchhan Paandey, grasping Pankaj Tripathi’s crotch when the latter is handing over the film’s script. Netizens believe that this scene was ripped off from a popular viral meme that circulates on social media. People also blasted the film’s poster, which shows Akshay and Jacqueline posing with a straw in their lips and a coconut in their hands. This stance was also allegedly inspired by a viral meme.
