For the past two days, 'Sonam Gupta bewafa hai' has taken the Internet by storm. And in case you were out during the long weekend and missed it, we will tell you what the hullabaloo is all about and why 'Sonam Gupta bewafa hai' has been trending.
It so happened that earlier this year an old, tattered Rs 10 note surfaced on social media platforms with the words, 'Sonam Gupta bewafa hai' (Sonam Gupta is unfaithful), written on it.
As rumour has it, a jilted lover wrote these words on the currency wanting to give a befitting reply to his lover - Sonam Gupta - who seemed to have betrayed and abandoned him. Not just this, some have even presumed that the abandoned lover wanted to warn other men of Sonam Gupta.
But that was past. So why was 'Sonam Gupta bewafa hai' trending for the last two days?
That's because, while the whole country was facing a hard time trying to exchange old currency - Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes - a new Rs 2,000 note with the same words or rather the same warning on it surfaced on the Internet. This saw the return of the Sonam Gupta phenomenon.
And soon after the talented bunch of people on the Internet came across this phenomenon, without giving it another thought, netizens jumped into the game to create some hilarious memes.
