The Internet Reacts Hilariously to Yeh Rishta Kya Kehlata Hai’s Covid-19/Mask Appropriation

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:

This one user who was just as stunned as all of us were

While another user came up with a relevant pickup line

This user was just done, though

The show does accurately portray aunties

Seriously though, nothing will stop Star World from monetizing on a global pandemic

Wise words. Wise words indeed.

This user saw right through to the real the aim of the TV show

Lekin yeh rishta kya kehlata hai??? Pls give answer

Love in the time of Corona (and a never-ending Indian soap)

Well, that’s it for now. I’m going to go back to watching YRKKH. And you?
