'Kaho na pyaaz hai', Amul's cartoon on onion prices wins the internet
The cartoon shows the Amul girl juggling onions with the caption reading, 'Kaho na pyaaz hai!'
The skyrocketing prices of onions in retail markets have burned a hole in the consumer’s pocket. The prices of onions that range between Rs 150 to Rs 180 kg across the country have also compelled some restaurants to remove snacks and other food items that use the vegetables as their main ingredient.
Apart from altering people’s budgets, the onion prices have also made way for funny memes and videos that have been making rounds in social media for quite some time now. And Amul, that is known to have a funny take on all the news-making issues through their topical cartoons, has posted their latest one on their Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages.
The cartoon shows the Amul girl juggling onions with the caption reading, "Kaho na pyaaz hai!" referring to the Bollywood film, "Kaho Na Pyaar Hai". The endnote of the cartoon reads, "Amul, Won’t make you cry!"
The post has been retweeted 225 times so far, with many relating to the situation, suggesting alternate captions for the cartoon, while also appreciating Amul's marketing skills.
Great cartoon. The only way to curb the price hike and black marketing is to boycot Onions #boycotOnion— Kannan G (@dalmiageekanna) December 10, 2019
