Throughout Friday, Rohit Shetty's name trended on Twitter as memes and jokes targeted at the filmmaker went viral. "When Rohit Shetty heard 'fake encounter' aur gaadi palat gayi (and the car overturned) #FakeEncounter," tweeted a user along with a photo of the filmmaker.

"Now Rohit Shetty to Ajay Devgan, Ye To Apna Wala Tha. #VikasDubey #vikasDubeyEncounter," joked another user.

"Rohit Shetty is happy that he won't have to pay for the script of his new movie. Time and money saved," announced another user.
