Not so long ago, you must have come across screenshots of a certain ‘Sanjay Kapoor’s’ Instagram pictures on your social media news-feed several times. You must have probably glanced through it or had a good laugh about it. The pictures told the story of a guy and a ‘catfish’ (as the Instagram account describes him) called Durgesh. With crass references to how Sanjay is ‘obsessed with breasts’ and how he ended up being conned by Durgesh when he boarded a plane to meet a girl, you might think the memes could be the next round of senseless jokes that the Internet trolls are working hard on coming up with, but it is not just that. According to the Facebook post of Sudhanshu Pandey, who claims to be the brother of the boy in the pictures, this is a father-son duo and it is on their expense that social media trolls have been laughing of late.

Talking to indianexpress.com Pandey said that the elderly man, whose actual name is Sanjay and is in his fifties, has gone through two brain surgeries and is physically weak and his 19-year-old son, whose actual name is Durgesh and is his only child, has been shouldering many responsibilities from the tender age of ten.

He said he came across the memes on a Facebook page that he was following. When he called up his brother to ask if he had an account on Instagram with the name Sanjay Kapoor, he was clueless about it. “My brother was in deep despair when he got to know about this and it took us more than a couple of days to get him back to normalcy,” said the 22-year-old who lives in Allahabad.
