Comedy group All India Bakchod posted a photo of the doppleganger along with one of Narendra Modi with the Snapchat dog filter.india Updated: Jul 17, 2017 09:12 IST
While your doppelganger might still be wandering around somewhere across the world, the internet has managed to find not one but many of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s look-alikes time after time.
One such look-alike was spotted waiting for a train at a railway station recently and, of course, the photo went viral on social media sites in no time.
Comedy group All India Bakchod (AIB) was among the many Twitteratis who jumped onto the bandwagon to spread some humour. They posted the doppleganger’s photo alongside an actual photo of Modi’s face with the Snapchat dog filter.
However, not all Twitter users were impressed, and the AIB came under fire from Modi supporters for “insulting” the prime minister and hurting “nationalist” sentiments.
Publicity theek hai yaar, lage haath thode nationalist sentiments aur hurt kar lo cuz Modi goes hand in hand. Magar joke to dhang ka ho! pic.twitter.com/sLSo4EyMHy— A La' Vile De Satara (@AdvancedMaushi) July 13, 2017
Tanmay Bhat & Rohan Joshi are ppl who will put dog filter on PM Modi's pic at night and wake up shouting no freedom of expression in India.— Startup of Cards (@BhargavPurohit) July 13, 2017
Within hours, the group deleted the post fearing more backlash. However, the saga did not end there.
Soon enough, some Twitter users started trolling the AIB - this time for being “scared” of the BJP and deleting the tweet.
Now AIB should just stick to making anti-Congress sketches which they did with much pride during our regime, ab woh FOE yaad nahi!— Angellica Aribam (@AngellicAribam) July 13, 2017

AIB: Ye lo. Joke on Modi.
BJP: WTF! REPORT! PUNISH!
AIB: OK. Taking it down.
Cong: WTF! REPORT! PUNISH!
This did not go down well with AIB co-founders Tanmay Bhat and Rohan Joshi who hit back at the trolls in equal measure.

Congress leaders and BJP trolls both getting mad over a goddamn silly snapchat filter meme smh— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 13, 2017
In the end Tanmay Bhatt had had enough with the roasting.
PS: Will continue making jokes. And deleting if necessary. And making jokes again. And Apologizing if necessary. Don't care what you think.— Tanmay Bhat (@thetanmay) July 13, 2017
