The ongoing coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing lockdowns across the world, have become fodder for memes. While a few memes take a jab at our situation, some memes are precautions and safety measures laced with humour. Tamil filmmaker Selvaraghavan joined the bandwagon with a viral meme, which was also a nice PSA.
The ‘Mayakkam Enna’ and ‘Aayirathil Oruvan’ director posted a picture where Dhanush’s Koki Kumar from Pudhupettai is seen glaring with a mask. “இப்பல்லாம் உயிரோட இருக்கணும் குமாரு..அது மட்டும்தான் மேட்டரு !! #coronavirus #wearmask #SocialDistancing,” he said in his tweet. It loosely translates to “Nowadays only survival is important, Kumaru,” a riff on a dialogue from the iconic 2006 film starring Dhanush, Sneha and Sonia Agarwal, among others.
