A woman’s post on the popular Netflix series Wednesday has garnered attention online and is taking fans of Indian cinema back in time.

The titular eight-episode Netflix series Wednesday, created by Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, has been creating a buzz on social media since its release last year, primarily due to Jenna Ortega’s character Wednesday Addams. While many are recreating the viral Jenna Ortega dance, some are even dressing up as Wednesday Addams and posting videos. Now, a woman’s post on the hit Netflix film Wednesday has caught netizens’ attention and is taking Indian cinema lovers down memory lane.
