Delhi University’s Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) had a lot of quirky superheroes roaming about its campus. Why? It was the farewell of their dramatics society, themed My Own Superhero Or Super Se Bhi Upar.
“We’ve chosen some really amazing themes last year so choosing one this year was hard. Then we settled on My Own Superhero,” says Nitesh Agarwal, the president, drama society, SRCC adding, “The idea was to either be a superhero or create one of your own. We had 32 third year students dressed up as cool characters.”
Students used their imaginations freely and came up with hatke ideas, such as Hulka – modification of Hulk; Thorm – a mix of Storm and Thorn; and a fun Super Sardar aka a Superman Sardarji.
Here’s how you can turn the joke on the head. Sandeep Sagar Behera, who dressed up as Hulka, says, “While browsing the internet, I came across Hulk’s picture and my friend said: ‘Bhai, tu Hulka bann ja!’ I’m thin. So people make fun of me. So I owned the joke like a boss!”
Since the idea was to create superheroes, some students even dressed up as Ram Lakshman with a funny twist. “I was Daaku Ram and my friend was Luccha Lakshman. We didn’t want to be traditional characters, so we took a gun and in full swag, bike pe entry liya. People said that we looked cool,” explains Lokesh Yadav, the modern-day Ram.
Another student, Raunak Bhojwani, who played Wolver-minion, says the theme gave him the chance to sport both his favourite characters. “I love minions and Wolverine. So I thought of doing something with both the characters and went for the look,” he says.
