As soon as Netflix announced its launch in India at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas starting for Rs 500 per month, hashtag #NetflixInIndia became a trending topic on Twitter. And why not? It’s a big news for Indian consumers who have been resorting to illegal means of downloading to watch foreign series. However, Twitterati’s reaction to the news is hilarious. Many are happy with the news, some wanted ‘Sasural Simar Ka’ on their content list and some invented another hasthag #SanskariNetflix. The reactions are hilarious!
