And quite rightly so! Celebrating the color pink and the spirit of Barbie, the internet, especially Reddit, is abuzz with some hilarious memes.

One of the memes was a mix of a few stars like Tusshar Kapoor, Salman Khan.

Another meme titled Original Barbie Hindi Soundtrack featured a hilarious version of the popular Barbie song. Lyrics of Hindi song are ‘Tu Hai Chalu Girl, To Mere Saath Chal’. ‘Picture Dikha Du, Ice Cream Khilau’ left everyone laughing in the comments section.
In a separate meme, Hrithik Roshan and Ameesha Patel’s face from Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai was pasted on a pink and yellow themed barbie layout. Netizens asked others who they would like to be as Barbie and Ken if Barbie is made in Bollywood. His choices were the brilliant Hrithik Roshan and Ameesha Patel. Meanwhile, names like Bipasha Basu, John Abraham and Hrithik Roshan, Kangana Ranaut have cropped up.

Directed by Greta Gerwig, Barbie also stars Kate McKinnon, Simu Liu, Issa Rae and Will Ferrell. Following her expulsion from Barbieland, the heroine enters the human world on a journey of self-discovery with her boyfriend, Ryan Gosling’s Kane.
According to News18 Review’s review of Barbie, “The dialogues and the screenplay are Barbie’s biggest superpowers. Greta makes several pop culture references, thus adapting the meta narration, which helps Barbie take things up a notch. She takes digs at the Margot Robbie-style of Er-Bridge’s comedy.”
