Amrita Rao's character 'Poonam' offered 'jal' in 'Vivah' over 15 years ago. Thanks to memers on desi Internet, the scene has come to life in 2021.

Long before Somvati Mahawar became the ultimate “ambassador" of tea with “Chai Pi Lo friends" meme, Amrita Rao was busy offering “Jal" in Sooraj Barjatya directorial Vivah back in 2006. The scene that has gone viral after more than 15 years on the desi Internet features Poonam (Amrita Rao) in the opening sequence of the romantic-drama film where she is seen in a pink salwar suit, offering water to Bhagatji (Manoj Joshi) who takes her “rishta" for Prem (played by Shahid Kapoor). As unassuming as the scene was, the memers of the Internet found it amusing enough to turn it into an overnight meme.
