Chandigarh, April 29
Temperatures across India have surpassed all previous records. The mercury level in Delhi-NCR and parts of north-west India is hovering above 45 degrees Celsius mark. Drawing reference with a popular song, ‘Suraj Hua Maddham’, from K3G movie, Twitter users are proactively tagging Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan, pleading him to ask the Sun to lessen its intensity.
The post was initially shared by a user, Srishti Pandey. Soon after she posted the tweet, users started a thread, adding more references from the film.
