No matter where you are or how old you are, desi moms will be desi moms. And of course, you cannot even imagine getting married without their blessings. But hey, what if the guy you're planning to get married to is KEANU REEVES?
A 32-year-old woman named Zahra Haider decided to prank her mother by claiming that she was marrying Reeves.
Zahra had just watched John Wick 3 and was crushing on Keanu Reeves, like most of us are, and decided to go for it, as reported by Buzzfeed.
In the first screenshot that she shared, Zahra can be seen telling her mother that she is in love with a man named Keanu Reeves and wants to marry him. Naturally, 'Ammi's' first reaction is a missed voice call. Next, Zahra tells her mother that Reeves is slightly older but a great guy and loves to ride motorcycles. Also, she mentions that he isn't religious and would even convert if asked nicely.
Poor Ammi who clearly has no idea who Reeves is, naively gives her daughter her blessings and you can make out that she is genuinely happy.
TIL that my mom has no idea who Keanu Reeves is, and I took full advantage. pic.twitter.com/gEVuEPwLlB— zeher (@haiderzs) May 20, 2019

Those missed calls have triggered my OCD.— Dirac (@ZalamSingh) May 20, 2019
It's really heartwarming to see how supportive Zahra's mom is. Also, she later tweeted and said that she called up her mom next to clarify. Her mom then called Reeves "good looking" but a little too old for her!
