Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai was back on Monday, July 15th, with a killer episode that should have been renamed “Yeh Mask Kya Kehlata Hai.” I mean, they took the saying “the show must go on” quite literally, as the traditional bahu attire of heavy jewellery and sanskari lehengas was replaced with masks, gloves an sanitizers. I guess they did the responsible thing and showed their audience that healthcare comes first, even before pyaar and sasural rules.
Well, millennials and Gen-Z had a field day on Twitter and Instagram, making memes and giving us their two cents about this special covid episode. We found some of the most LOL-worthy comments, like:
