Rahul Khanna Is Trending Because People Can't Figure Out Why Rahul Khanna Is Trending

Indian Twitter has eaten its tail.

Posted on

And why, you ask? It turns out that some users discovered that, a long time ago, Khanna used to reply to people's tweets to him over direct message.

P.S. Rahul Khanna used to reply to compliments on DM AGES AGO when there were a little fewer people following him.


And once the pattern was pointed out, people started digging up and retweeting old tweets from users announcing that Rahul Khanna had messaged them.

It started with a few users doing it for LOLs, but eventually it got Rahul Khanna trending.


And, evidently, it wasn't just women he messaged.

lol all you naive ladies. Rahul Khanna has DM'd me too :D

Also, it was a Rahul Khanna habit that a lot of Twitter users were aware of back then.

@nakhrewali Parul, seriously - we need to plan. :P And btw, I still find it totally adorable that Rahul Khanna replies to tweets via DM. :P
