Here’s why “Help me, Durdana” is our favourite Urwa Hocane meme ever

With both Punjab Nahi Jaungi and Na Maloom Afraad 2 clashing at the Eid-Ul-Azha box office, there’s one clear winner in the industry and it’s neither of the films, but Urwa Hocane. Triumphant at the silver screen with not one but two flicks, the actress has proved her mettle like no other, and there’s a high chance you might remember her through the name Durdana.

Who’s this Durdana we speak of? Well, let’s just say it’s one character from Urwa, which has received even more recognition than her role in Udaari! Whether it’s Twitter or Instagram, people cannot have enough of PNJ’s loveable yet manipulative, Durdana.

Don’t believe us? Check out these memes for yourselves!

 

 

Of course, knowing trolls, it’s no surprise that this caught on so quickly, but we can’t help laughing either!

 

Speaking to Something Haute about her role as Durdana turning into social media fodder for memes, the actress said,

“Honestly, I didn’t expect it to become such a rage. I am elated with all the warmth and love pouring our way, though. The other day we had gone for cinema visits and a bunch of guys came to me and asked if I had found my ‘jutti‘. The memes that have gone viral are hilarious too!”

 

If like us, you can’t get enough of the Basheera in Trouble inspired accents and dialogues in PNJ, then we’re sure the term “Help me, Durdana” is something you cannot stop thinking of either.
