CID officer Daya has turned into a meme.

CID actor Dayanand Shetty, better known as Daya whose singular job on the show involved breaking down doors, seems to be stuck with his reputation. The actor and his propensity to ‘darwaza tod do’ has now been turned into a meme by the ever-creative minds on Twitter. While we have laughed over CID jokes for years, there was a sudden surge in the flow of new Daya memes on Twitter recently.

CID is credited as the longest running show in India, having begun in 1998. Besides Daya, the show also starred Shivaji Satam as ACP Pradyuman, Senior Inspectors Abhijeet, Dinesh Phadnis as Inspector Fredricks and Narendra Gupta as Dr. Salunkhe. All the five actors have been working together on the show since almost two decades and have inspired individuals memes on social media.

But it’s Daya’s day on Twitter whose one still from the show went viral on social media. In the picture, the actor can be seen grieving on the beach while being dressed in his usual formals. Turning it into a meme, a user wrote, “When you’re waiting for the opportunity to knock the door but later realize that you’ve broken all of them.” Another wrote, “When ACP pradyuman opens the door without asking Daya for it.”



Observing the current mood which is either drifting towards the Hollywood film, Avengers: Endgame or towards the just-aired third episode of the popular TV show Game of Thrones, some users compared Daya’s grieving moment with the turn of events in the two releases. A user gave an example, “When you want to break the door but thanos snapped people out, so there is no one to say “Daya darbaza tod #Avengers #Thanos.”

Another user hinted at what would happen when the last season of Game of Thrones would come to an end and tweeted, “Sadness at its peak after #AvengersEndgame #LokSabhaElections2019 #GameofThrones finishes.”

The show has come a long way and so have the doors, which may not always be made of wood and easier to break down. Realising the situation, a user commented, “When doors are no more wooden but steel.” Another wrote, “When ACP Pradyuman asks Daya to Open the Door using keys.”

Many more users came with up with different scenarios as what could have led to Daya’s recent heartbreak. A user wrote, “When opportunity doesn’t knock & u have to build ur own DOOR.” Another wrote, “When you don’t get to break the door because it was already open.”
