People are asking some pressing questions through Sanju memes. Here are a few

A new series of memes targeting the Munna Bhai classroom scene that was recreated in Sanju are flooding the internet. Besides poking fun at Ranbir Kapoor and Rajkumar Hirani, even Vijay Mallya and Salman Khan aren’t spared.

As Rajkumar Hirani’s Sanju inches closer to the Rs 200 crore mark at the Indian box office, the audience’s fascination with the film refuses to subside. The latest way in which fans have chosen to express their feelings is through memes - targeted specifically on the classroom scene in which Sanjay Dutt, the film’s subject, asks a very pertinent question.

“Wo bahar casualty me koi marne ki halat main raha to usko form bharna jaruri hai kya? (If someone’s out there dying in the casualty ward does he have to fill a form first?)” Sanjay’s character, the simple-minded goon Munna Bhai, asks the dean, played by Boman Irani.

Fans on Twitter have taken this template - a confused Dutt asking an obvious question - to pose several questions of their own. Everyone from Salman Khan to Vijay Mallya gets a meme.

One person also took the opportunity to bring up the film’s antagonism towards the media, which according to the story Sanju tells, was responsible for everything from Dutt’s excessive womanising and even his troubles with the law.

Here are the best ones

Sanju has become a runaway success at the box office, scoring the biggest opening weekend numbers of 2018 and of star Ranbir Kapoor’s career.

Here’s the scene we are talking about...

Reviews for the film, however, have been mixed. The film holds a 50% rating on the review aggregator site, Rotten Tomatoes, a far cry from the universally beloved reputation of Hirani’s previous films.

Sanju is produced by Vidhu Vinod Chopra and also stars Manisha Koirala, Anushka Sharma, Sonam Kapoor, Paresh Rawal, Vicky Kaushal and Jim Sarbh.
