Union Minister Smriti Irani’s Instagram meme highlighting her struggle to balance her diet and the temptation to gorge on Diwali sweets has left netizens in splits.
She shared a clip from Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol’s blockbuster film Baazigar in which comedian Jhonny Lever and Dinesh Hingoo break into a nervous laugh looking at each other.
The actor-turned-politician captioned the post: “The struggle is Real (crying emoji) me and my Diwali Mithai.”
The minister had previously shared a series of Instagram stories featuring various popular desi desserts and why people enjoy it.
With Dusheera and Diwali festivals falling in the same month, several calorie-conscious netizens also seem to be on an extended cheat-day as they said they could relate with Irani’s struggle.
