It's hard to believe that we are halfway through 2020 and have seen what feels like an eternity of global events--the novel coronavirus, cyclones, earthquakes, protests, fires, and locust attacks. Dear 2020, promise us you don't have an apocalypse in store for us next. Well, where do we seek some comfort in these dark times? In memes we trust! And it seems like a lot of people do, including celebrities. So if this strange, trying, unpredictable, and absolutely crazy mess of a year was a person, who would it be? Producer Ekta Kapoor has a unique answer.
“If 2020 was a person it would be Komolika," Ekta Kapoor shared on her Instagram yesterday. And we agree. 2020 sure is just like the evil-minded Komolika, who's always planning to ruin Anurag and Prerna's life. Just like this year scuttled all our it's-going-to-be-my-year plans. That being said, we reimagined 2020 as a TV character. Why? 'Coz we believe in helping people laugh through their tears. Thank us later!
The entertainment industry has given us some characters that are a potpourri of emotions and comedy with unique personalities that make them unforgettable. So think about 2020 and tell me, if it was a person, would it be one (if not all) of these people/characters? Read on!
The strict Kokila ben of Saath Nibhana Saathiya was a pillar in the show that became one of the longest-running serials in Indian television. And now she has got all of TikTok hooked to lip-syncs on her popular dialogues. 2020 is also like the overbearing mother-in-law that Kokila was--harsh, just the way Kokila was on Gopi bahu.
Tulsi Virani belongs to that era when TV bahus ruled the small screen and she was easily the most famous of all. Tulsi was an ideal, every mother-in-law's dream-come-true bahu. She was high-on-sanskaar--remember how she welcomed us all inside her home in the title song? Just like 2020 welcomed us, except we didn't know about the storm that was brewing. So much of kitchen-laden politics, plastic surgeries, generation leaps, and whatnot. And need we remind you of how 2020 is changing its roop too with coronavirus, cyclones, and earthquakes one after another. Rishton ke bhi roop badlte hain indeed.
Remember Adaa Khan from Naagin 2? She played the antagonist who spent most of her time hatching evil plans against the other lead, Mouni Roy. We just hope 2020 isn't scheming any more against us. It has already ruined our travel, eating-out, going-to-salon-for-a-relaxing-day plans, and more.
If you have lived through the 90s, you've definitely seen Ramola Sikand in her evil avatar. Everyone hated this stepmother who was out and out cruel. Well, 2020 and Ramola share the same passion for making everyone suffer, don't they?!
If not anything, lockdown sure has turned many into chefs cooking up a storm in their kitchens. Haven't most of us turned into popular chef Nigella Lawson rustling up a Sunday roast, knowing no bounds when it comes to butter, adding a gallon of cream to potatoes or a fistful of sugar to pies?! Our Instagram feeds are proof enough.
2020, what this behaviour? Oh, this reminds me of the famous Pooja Misrra LOL!
Okay, you actually wasted quite some time reading this article. We are done, you can get back to what you were doing. Toodles!
