Even though it has been two decades since its release, Shankar’s 2001 film Nayak has continued to remain popular among masses. Starring Anil Kapoor, Rani Mukherjee, Paresh Rawal and Amrish Puri in important roles, the political drama became a major hit in the 2000s, and found longevity after that with multiple TV re-runs. Now, one particular moment from the film has hooked desi Tweeple, who have been giving it a hilarious meme twist.
