When it comes to social media posts by celebrities, eagle-eyed fans and netizens can sometimes obsess over the tiniest of details. And that’s exactly what happened when Hrithik Roshan shared a sweet post about spending time with his mother. What caught their eye was ‘seelan’ (seepage) on the wall. Soon, it led to relatable reactions and got even paint companies involved, starting a laughing riot online.
It all started when Roshan shared a mirror selfie of him enjoying a “lazy breakfast date” with mother Pinky Roshan, saying it felt like a Sunday mid-week. “Now go give your mom a hug,” the actor tweeted, along with a picture that showed his mother standing outside on the balcony, while he was seated on a chair inside.
But instead of appreciating the message, some of his followers on both Instagram and Twitter started to comment on the post, highlighting the damp wall and its worn-out paint. However, the War actor, known for his sense of humour, stole the show with his sassy reply.
On a lazy breakfast date with my mum ❤️ It’s a good morning ☀️
Sunday feels on Wednesday are best ☺️
Now go give your mom a hug. pic.twitter.com/f1st25rE3I

While some fans linked the dampness on the wall to his humbleness, lauding him for not flaunting off his wealth, others remarked that it’s a Mumbai problem. Many joked they were happy to see even stars face seepage woes. But it was attention from two paint companies that left others laughing out loud on the microblogging site.
While one shared a meme featuring him saying it’s “not funny” to poke fun at someone for scruffy walls, another quipped to call the expert and not Jadoo if he ever needed “scientific waterproofing solution”.

Looks like your fans are very concerned about the background walls! If you ever need scientific waterproofing solutions, don’t wait for ‘Jadoo.’ Call the experts! 😉 #BergerHomeshield #NoGyaanOnlyVigyaan
