Hotstar's new show, Criminal Justice shows just that. A dialogue from this show seems to have struck a chord with desi users and has become the perfect meme template for that very reason.
Starring Vikrant Massey in the lead role, the trailer to the series shows him being accused of a crime, his defence for which to his lawyer is, "Kya hua, kab hua, ye sab mujhe yaad nahi.”

This dialogue, out-of-context, is perhaps universally relatable. Or at least, that's what netizens felt when they applied it to every possible situation.
