Following in the footsteps of his friend and fellow actor Adnan Siddiqui, Aijaz Aslam attempted to recreate his viral meme.
Siddiqui has been making headlines lately for his selfie that is etched in our minds now, and it looks like some people have taken it a step further and taken inspiration. Aslam on Friday posted his selfie with flames in the background and “dedicated” it to Siddiqui.
“Mission continues… today I was a part of drug burning ceremony,” he wrote. “I tried to take a selfie from the same angle as Adnan Siddiqui.”
The Meray Paas Tum Ho star was quick to respond with laughter. Actor Ushna Shah also joined in on the fun.
He and Aslam also had an exchange on their Instagram stories where Siddiqui shared the recreation. “May you get noticed and become a viral meme! The inspiration, though, will always be me,” he said.
Aijaz Aslam shared some of the memes:
Siddiqui has taken all the memes and jokes in his stride. He even re-shared Ali Gul Pir’s parody, saying “Well, when your memes start trending all over social media, you have moved up the ladder.” He added that perhaps he should “keep on doing amusing things to give fodder to meme industry.”
More recently, he shared a video of himself trying to unsuccessfully light his stove and saying that the memes have taken all the fire. He thanked his fans and meme-makers, saying they ended his “work trajectory and celebrity quotient”, transforming him into a star through one meme after years of him trying to do that through his work.
Adnan Siddiqui memes are here to stay
Oftentimes when a celebrity posts a picture online, it ends up becoming fodder for the next Twitter memes. Looks like Siddiqui learned that the hard way when he posted a selfie in front of a pile of burning liquor.
Siddiqui took part in a destruction ceremony of confiscated goods organized by the Customs (Enforcement) Karachi. He recorded himself taking part in the destruction of seized liquor and drugs.
Soon after this post, a particular photo of Siddiqui, showing him taking a selfie with the aforementioned drugs ablaze in the background, became the first tweet of 2022. It goes without saying that Pakistani meme-makers are having a fun time and so are we! You can check out some of the funniest memes we found.
In an interview earlier, Siddiqui referred to himself as a ‘vampire’ when asked about how he feels about starring next to young female actors.
