Indian Twitter on Monday came across an ugly fight video that reminded them of Bollywood movies. The scuffle took place in Uttar Pradesh's Baghpat district between shopkeepers and workers of two chat stalls. The brawl broke out in Atithi Bhavan market area in Baraut town between the shop owners over getting more customers to their respective shops following which the visuals from the incident were published across social media.
12 people were injured and eight were arrested related to the incident. However, no serious injuries were reported, Baghpat police stated.
The viral video quickly circulated online and one of the perpetrators arrested from the brawl reminded many of Albert Einstein and "Virus", a fictional character portrayed by Boman Irani in 3 Idiots.
Note: Some viewers may find the video disturbing. Strong language used.

But the memes didn't stop at that.
Many fans of Hindi cinema likened the viral video to over-the-top and elaborate fight sequences that are a fixture in several Bollywood movies.
This is where a Twitter bot account dedicated to editing videos came into the picture.
Ready with the right script and their favourite Bollywood fight video, several users spammed the bot account in a bid to juxtapose those scenes with Baghpat's brawl.
The results? See for yourself.
Here are some memes after the arrests were made:
