It was a strange morning for Bollywood actor Vicky Kaushal who woke up to an inbox full of memes involving his name. The actor may not be sure of what it was all about and so it took him a little while to understand the whole matter. But as soon as he got what it was all about, he was more than happy to allow fans to go ahead with it.
It all started on Sunday night when users spotted the 'URI' actor's name during a match between India and Bangladesh at the U19 World Cup. While the broadcasters showed the scorecard of Bangladesh's innings, Vicky Kaushal's name was spotted. But not in one place but in bits. With two India U19 players- Vicky Ostwal and Kaushal Tambe- featuring in the scorecard one after the other, it combined to make up Vicky Kaushal's name.
The 'URI' actor was quick to thanks users for spamming him with memes after he understood what it was about. "Thank you internet for spamming me with this today. Best wishes Team India U19," Kaushal wrote on his Instagram story alongside a picture of India vs Bangladesh Under-19 World Cup 2022 scoreboard.
