The film Kabir Singh triggered a meme-fest on social media soon after its release as it stoked controversies over glorifying toxic masculinity and abusive relationships.
And it seems the wave of memes is refusing to die down even four months since its release. Most recently, a witty social media user quipped the movie with a funny meme that sent actress Kiara Advani, who played the role of “Preeti” in the film, into peals of laughter. The actress took to her Instagram account to share a screenshot of the meme in the story section, calling it one of the best memes that she had ever come across.
The meme by a Twitter user was inspired by a scene in which Shahid Kapoor a.k.a. Kabir gets to know that someone smeared his girlfriend Preeti’s face with Holi colours in college and screams “Who touched Preeti?”
To hit upon the protagonist’s possessiveness of his girlfriend, the Twitter user shared a photo of a charger plugged into an electric socket with “Preeti” (the name of the actress) written on it with a caption: “Now, no one will touch my charger.”

The meme left many social media users in splits and they shared more memes to troll the movie.
